When Amanda Zuckerman first started looking for things she could use to decorate her freshman-year dorm room, she found it more than a little difficult. There simply weren't a lot of good options for bedding on an extra tall twin bed, which comes standard in many dorm rooms, and Amanda and her mother, Karen Zuckerman, found themselves frustrated by the options for other decorating ideas, too.

That frustration led to the genesis of their brand, Dormify, which is a one-stop shop for dorm room decoration.
