Buy College Decor From This North Carolina Company That Gives Back

Making beds and making a difference.

Nothing feels better than buying from companies that care about their customers and gives back to the community— and that is exactly what LeighDeux has done for over five years.

Founded and launched in 2013, LeighDeux, a home and dorm furnishings company, was created by co-founder Leigh Goodwyn after her daughter has trouble finding cute bedding for her dorm room. It has been a completely female-owned company.

Originally armed with the idea to create affordable and chic bedding for college students, LeighDeux has now transformed into a home decor company. Their team did not want to stop with just a company— they wanted to create a company that gives back in more ways than one.

What makes LeighDeux so special? Since its inception in 2013, LeighDeux has provided numerous jobs in the textile industry in North Carolina and South Carolina. LeighDeux has also gotten involved in giving back to students. A portion of their proceeds is donated toward a scholarship fund for deserving students pursuing entrepreneurship. Also, LeighDeux’s textiles and fabrics are their own original designs, and they manufacture their entire collection.

LeighDeux is widely known for The Headboard Pillow, which is a comfortable, sturdy pillow that rests on the back of your bed, creating the effect of a headboard. With numerous colors to choose from, there is even an option to personalize your headboard pillow even more with your initials.

 

Interested in furnishing an entire room and don’t know where to begin? Look at LeighDeux’s collections and build from there! Let them walk you through choosing a duvet, pillows, headboard and all of the accessories you need to make your space your own. Check out my personal favorite, the Bright Eyes & Bushy Tails Collection, created by blogger and interior design influencer Holly Phillips.

This next item is a must-have for your college dorm room. Leigh Deux offers privacy panels, which are beautiful, curtain-length pieces of fabric that are easily hung to hide the clutter in your closet. This item can instantly transform your room from mess to yes. (Take down that make-shift shower curtain you have dangling in front of your closet, because you won’t need that anymore.)

Do you have the top bunk in your college dorm? Make your bed more cozy and convenient by getting a bunk box. I wish I would’ve had this my freshman year to save myself a lot of hassles. If you have a late night study session in your room with lots of friends, look into buying some cute floor pillows to get really comfy.

You’ve already adjusted to living in a dorm this semester, so why not take the extra step of reaching chic and comfort by checking out LeighDeux? Each purchase makes a difference to students around the world. I know as soon as I get an apartment, I’ll be shopping again on LeighDeux.
