Bed and Philosophy is entering its thirteenth year. I did not see the time passing, so many meetings and enriching experiences. I feel like it was yesterday…
A few memories come back to me.
The sound of tape in the early morning to prepare the packages.
This shrill noise that we heard from the girls’ room on the first floor.
Lilli and Ella would run no risk of arriving late for school. They came down for breakfast, stepping over the boxes that I had taken 3 hours to prepare and close just before they passed.
The carrier rings.

The corridor of the house is 12 meters long, which allowed me to line up around 24 boxes that I filled with care and attention so as not to make any mistakes.
My first clients were instrumental in the future of Bed and Philosophy.
Some of them, if not all of them, have become close friends.
Many of them trusted me, yet nothing was won.
In 2009, the linen trend in the home sector was not yet perceived by everyone.
However, I was inhabited by a strange intuition that something beautiful was going to happen.
12 years ago, I came from the world of ready-to-wear, which occupied the first 20 years of my career.
Every day I felt a little more that my professional life was going to take me somewhere else.

The linens were moving. A few brands with very few distributions shared this new home decor and washed linen market.
I have always loved the world of the home and it was not uncommon for me to change the color of the curtains and sofa covers according to the seasons or a simple ray of sunshine lighting up the living room.

Everything is intact in my memory. Anecdote of the first estimate that I had to redo a good thirty times: at 2 a.m., the lines and the figures were mixed up but I had to finalize it. When I went to bed, I allowed myself to reread it one last time in the early morning. And the machine was launched.

What a joy to look back, the time of this writing and to see that to this day I am accompanied by a team of 15 people who carry the brand with conviction.
What satisfaction to feel with you, my dear loyal customers, an attachment to the values that I defend.
What an encouragement to see that more and more of you are following us on social networks and in your purchases.
How can I thank you, dear philosophers, for your curiosity in discovering my novelties?
For your closeness and your great loyalty?
The struggles that have punctuated these past 12 years (because there have been some) have sometimes led me to discouragement, but it never lasts long.
And it is in all happy events that I turn to nourish myself and continue.
So thank you 1000 xxx!
