References to Minecraft’s gameplay and iconic characters are translated into bold pieces perfect for any Minecraft enthusiast. Characters such as Steve, Alex and the Pig are depicted in a delicately hand-painted water color sheet set and other standout pieces, including the shaped accent pillow featuring the Pig’s playful silhouette. The collection’s textiles, backpack, water bottle, lunchbox and beanbag thoughtfully incorporate the game’s signature pixelated style, using building blocks and cubes in deep green and gray hues to create the ultimate Minecraft-inspired space.
