Our Story

COLORFUL BED ACCESSORIES FOR A COLORFUL LIFE

We believe beds are a crucial canvas for self-expression. So we craft and curate colorful and bold bed accessories from our dreamy Brooklyn office. From decorative pillows to eye masks, we’ve got you covered. Literally ;) 

GOODS FOR GOOD

In March of 2017, we embarked on a very colorful journey into the world of social impact. We are on a mission to positively impact women transitioning out of homelessness, starting with our #DREAMONIT Collection. For each new product purchased from the Collection, we will match with a donation of decorative bedding to each woman graduating from New York City Rescue Mission's THRIVE Program and into their own home. A housewarming gift that would not be possible without YOU! 

#THEEXTRAWINK

40 winks of sleep may leave you feeling rejuvenated and well-rested, but 41 Winks adds the extra wink ;) You may be thinking, “what’s 40 winks... and wait, what?” And that may be because you’re a Millennial (like us) or a Generation Z-er (hay!!!).  40 Winks is a phrase that essentially means a quick nap. Back when our parents and grandparents were hip, they might have been overheard saying something like, “I’m gonna catch 40 winks and meet up with you after. And how bout that colored TV?!” F Scott Fitzgerald may have been the first to make the phrase popular around 1924, but speed up to present day and we’ve reworked the original phrase just a bit.

If 40 Winks leaves you feeling rejuvenated and well-rested, 41 Winks gives you all that and more ;) The extra wink is our commitment to being a socially impactful brand. We’re a small team of girls based of Brooklyn and <3 our beds as much as we <3 our customers. And as a bunch of Millennials and Gen-zers, we know our generations care about brands giving back to society. Stick with us as we impact homelessness in NYC one product at a time!

Olivia White

Olivia White

CEO & Creative Director

Olivia is a proud Texan turned Brooklynite. She studied International Relations & Spanish at the University of Southern California, and loves traveling, TexMex, her beagle George, and anything she considers a “New York Moment”. But most of all, she loves sleep; her bed has always been her own space to recharge and wind down. So it’s no surprise that Olivia was the inspiration for 41 Winks. Her aunt Catherine founded the company after shopping for dorm room bedding and finding a hotbed of not-so-haute beds. Under Olivia’s direction, the company has expanded to cover the beds of students and young professionals across the country. You’ll find her at their WeWork office, under a 41 Winks neon sign, surrounded by mini disco balls, getting down right creative with her 41 Winks team.
