Parachute Home Review
Table of Contents
The home is a personal place. It’s where we feel most comfortable and have the freedom to fill it with whatever we like. These days, we have so many options to pick from, but personally, I gravitate towards items that make me feel joy and peace.
Scrolling through Parachute’s collection, I felt a sense of calm wash over me. Soothing colors and soft fabrics permeate the line of bedding, bath, furniture, and decor, and I was compelled to slow down and stay a while.
Swapping over to its social pages, I noticed a community of 740k before catching its name in headlines on Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, and Refinery 29. Why so much buzz? I think it has a lot to do with Parachute’s whole aesthetic, but also, the undeniable quality of its home goods.
My aim in this Parachute home review is to give you a better understanding of the brand so you can decide if it’s the right fit for your home. Cozying up to its bedding and living accessories, I’ll also breeze through feedback, promotions, and more to give you the full scoop.
Overview of Parachute
Ariel Kaye, stylish founder and CEO of Parachute, wants to make you feel at home. Working in advertising and brand development, she had a keen eye for detail and a passion for design.
Of course, as so many visionaries do, Ariel saw the need for improvement in the home goods market. She dreamed of a company that fused comfort, style, and affordable prices, and in 2014, launched Parachute Home in Venice, California.
Parachute’s line of bedding, furniture, and decor is crafted in Europe. Though when it was launched, the brand sold online only, it has now grown into several brick and mortal locations across the US.
After reading up on Parachute Home, I came to see why the brand is so popular for its laidback color scheme. Inspired by sunny Venice Beach, there’s a warm, breezy air about the line that’s incredibly calming.
But the zen vibe isn’t the only reason people flock to this brand. Using responsible materials like Egyptian cotton and ethical manufacturing, it’s one that you can really feel good about buying.

Parachute Bed Sheets Review
Sheets are arguably the most important piece of bedding. It’s all about preference, but I think a balance of softness and crispness is key. If you’re in the market for a dreamy sheet set, you’ve come to the right place. Just below in this Parachute home review, I’ll feature a range of the brand’s best-selling OEKO-Tex certified sheets.
Percale Sheet Set
To begin these Parachute home reviews, I’ll start with the lightweight, durable, and crisp long-staple Egyptian cotton Percale Sheet Set. Made for supreme comfort, it’ll keep you cool all summer long.
I’m all too familiar with hot sheets. As a hot sleeper, I know the value of choosing a lightweight sheet set. Inside this set, you’ll discover one fitted sheet and two pillowcases. You can always add on a top sheet if you like, but this set is all about the basics.
Available in all sizes from Twin to California King, choose from soothing neutral colors like sand, blush, and slate, all of which bring me back to fond memories of collection seashells as a kid. The set retails for $129-$169.
Sateen Sheet Set
Sateen is a silky, dreamy fabric less slippery than silk but smoother than percale. I think it’s ideal for those who love the luxury feeling, though it does sleep hotter than percale.
The Sateen Sheet Set includes two pillowcases and a fitted sheet made from 100% long staple Egyptian cotton.
Keeping you snug and comfortable, this soft, smooth bedding is available in Twin to California King sizes in white, blush, sand, and light grey colors. If you wish to be enveloped in the warm embrace of the Parachute Sateen Sheet Set, simply lay down $149-$189.
Linen Sheet Set
Linen is a pro at regulating body temperature. What does that mean for sleeping? That both hot and cold sleepers will feel comfortable and that these sheets can stay on your bed all year long.
Though linen feels like a more casual fiber—it’s not silky by any means—it’s still soft and familiar and only gets better with time. Made from the finest European flax, the Linen Sheet Set comes in 10 colors, but I’m quite partial to terra: a warm, earthy red-brown.
Get the set in sizes Twin to California King for $189-$229.
Brushed Cotton Sheet Set
The buttery soft cozy fabric of the Parachute Brushed Cotton Sheet Set is an unparalleled favourite of mine. To me, pressing its fabric against my skin reminds me of the many nights I used to spend cuddling in my boyfriend’s work t-shirt. He wore it when we first met and gave me this shirt to keep me company whenever he was absent. I know, I know, he’s a keeper!
Getting back to my Parachute home review…The set is fully made of cotton in a plain weave and comes in shades of white, ivory, ochre, dusk, and latte.
So what’s brushed cotton anyway? The fitted sheet and pillowcase set are garment washed for the purpose of making them extra soft, and warmer than Parachute’s percale sheets, but cooler than their sateen selection. In matters regarding cotton vs linen, it’s always noble to remember cotton’s versatility. Paying $169-$199 sounds like a done deal.
Parachute Mattress Review
Most important lesson I’ve learned in the past year: never underestimate the power of a good mattress. After settling on any old thing for most of my adult life, I now know the difference the right mattress makes for sleep.
Did heaven send down the Parachute Mattress? It’s so divine-looking and must’ve been shipped via parachute, which now that I think about it, kind of explains the origins of this specific brand name. Conspiracy theories aside, let’s get a good look at this thing.
The mattress has firm construction in the centre for back support and softer construction at the head and feet for spine alignment and pressure point relief.
The Parachute Mattress is made with layers of New Zealand wool and organic cotton. The amount of steel coils seems overzealous as there are 5x more of them than in any standard mattress. Foam-free, it doesn’t even need a box spring. Prices for the mattress are as follows:
- Twin and Twin XL: $1499
- Full: $2199
- Queen: $2399
- King and Cal King: $2599

Parachute Pillow Review
You bet I’ll feature pillows in this Parachute home review. How else will you understand the full Parachute sleep experience? You simply couldn’t, and so I’ll tell you all about the brand’s natural and synthetic down pillows below. Both are available in standard and king size.
The moment you pick your size and density, you invite the Parachute Down Pillow into your home with open arms. Its 750 fill power European white down keeps this pillow airy yet sturdy.
The outer shell is made of sateen cotton reinforced with a double stitched piping seam. The cost of $129-$209 gives me the impression that they’re quite luxurious and fitting for a lovely, wholesome home.
Down Alternative Pillow
In case you have an allergy or are admirably vegan, I’m happy to report here in this Parachute home review that the brand offers an alternative.
The Parachute Down Alternative Pillow contains hypoallergenic microfiber fill instead. It imitates the warmth and plushiness of natural down so that you don’t feel like you’re really missing out. The Down Alternative Pillow uses a cambric cotton shell rather than sateen cotton.
Paying $79-$109 almost makes this pillow a more considerable option over its down counterpart.
Parachute Basic Bathrobe Review
I couldn’t not showcase this fan favorite in my Parachute home review. After choosing your shade of either white, mineral, blush, stone, or fawn, you can bask in the relaxation of a lavish bathrobe with its waist tie and shawl collar that provide ultimate coziness.
The Parachute bathrobe also has two slouchy pockets for your hands to dive in and soak up warmth.
This classic bathrobe is made of long-staple Turkish cotton, so it makes sense for Parachute to charge $109 for a semi-precious home goodie such as this one.
For a more luxurious option, check out the Cashmere Blend Robe on their site for $199. Pretty fancy! Oh, and Parachute also has a Silk Pajama Set ($179) and matching Silk Eye Mask ($19) that I think are definitely worth checking out.
More Parachute Home
As I promised you at the beginning of this Parachute home review, this brand has tons of products to elevate your home experience. From soft bath towels to modern decor, here’s a taste of the other items Parachute has to offer:
Parachute’s bathroom items are sure to impress your guests. Set yourself up with the Organic Cotton Bath Bundle, including 6 bath towels, 6 hand towels, 6 washcloths and 1 tub mat for $442.
The bathroom products are where things really get interesting, with luscious scents and natural products. Parachute offers a Purifying Hand Soap ($35), Bath Brush ($35), Natural Sea Sponge ($21), and Hydrating Hand Cream ($39), and Sleep Time Bath Salt for $29.
Parachute Decor + Living
I really like the How to Make a House a Home book by Ariel Kaye for $23. It’s a chance to inspire your own decorative style and I think it makes a cute coffee table book. To really immerse yourself in scent, try the Essential Oil Diffuser ($123) and the Rest Linen Mist ($19).
Parachute also offers some attractively minimalist decor. Wall Art by Ethan Catflisch ($149-$249) and this Handmade Ceramic Vase ($103) piqued my interest for sure. Honorable mention goes to the Desert Pillow Cover ($69-$79) and classy Oversized Alpaca Boucle Throw ($289).
In terms of bedroom decor, Parachute continues with the modern and minimalist theme with pieces like the Bluff Stacked Nightstand ($749) and Dune Bed Frame ($1800 to $2800).
Parachute Home Review: What Do Customers Think?
After everything I’ve learned throughout this Parachute home review, I applaud the premium quality behind the brand’s hotel style bedding and posh furniture and decor. The comfortability and picturesque bed sheets and other home essentials push Parachute to the forefront of the home goods market. By making products free of toxins and environmentally-unfriendly chemicals, Parachute puts itself at a level higher than organic, and is Oeko-Tex certified.
So far, I’ve loved everything I’ve seen from this brand, but it’s important to hear from those who have purchased its products. Setting out in search of feedback, I was surprised when I didn’t come across much of it online.
On parachutehome.com though, I found a 4.4/5 star score from 3,372 shoppers. Here’s how it breaks down:
- 5 stars: 74%
- 4 stars: 7%
- 3 stars: 9%
- 2 stars: 5%
- 1 star: 5%
Of its luxurious bedding, one customer wrote a Parachute home review that read, “I absolutely love this bedding! It’s so soft and lightweight, but also great quality and looks beautiful. I loved it so much I bought a second set to have on hand while the other is being washed.”
Searching around the web, though there seems to be a buzz about this brand in the media, there haven’t been many independent reviews. From what I did see, it looks like Parachute passes the luxury test, but I’ll admit I bumped into a few complaints too.
It apears that customers are generally ticked about the short-term return period (I’ll tell you more about that later) and that certain sheet sets don’t include a flat sheet. Though Parachute is transparent about both, I understand how either of these issues could be frustrating.
Parachute’s return policy is actually longer than most—60 days—and they have a convenient button on sheet set pages that lets you add on a top sheet. From what I can see, there are no concerning red flags for this brand.
Parachute Home Instagram
Looking into Parachute‘s Instagram, the soft, billowing form created by bed sheets before they land onto the bed justifies the name of this particular brand. While I’m still settled on the whole “heaven-sent” concept, this one makes sense too. An image like this portrays ease of comfort, something we all desire now and then.
I find the brand’s Instagram page to be therapeutic as if it’s displaying feng shui in full motion where you feel the smooth, positive energy sailing through the room pictured on the computer screen. It’s been one of my favorite parts of writing this Parachute home review so far.
Parachute lovers can connect to each other through the Instagram community, using the hashtag #myparachutehome.
Parachute Promotions & Discounts
No Parachute home review would be complete without a section on deals, so I scoped out the brand’s website to see what I could uncover.
From what I found, Parachute offers a 100 day trial for its mattresses and free carbon neutral shipping for all products. They also dedicate an entire webpage under the heading “Last Chance” to compile their exclusive collection with deals on home essentials.
