Linen Lines We Love
As we all know, the best part of staying at a nice hotel is always the bed—complete with perfectly crisp sheets. It’s heaven. We asked some of our favorite hotels for their bedding recipes to recreate the same feel at home. Their picks are below, along with a few of our favorites. These are in addition to the brands used by some of our favorite hotels: (Frette, Gastaldi Linen, Schwob AG, Rivolta Carmignani and Shutters Beach Style).
Manufactured from top-quality Italian yarns, Anichini combines old-world craftsmanship with stylish design. They also stock very cool furniture and accessories, all hand-made in Vermont.
Inspired by the fabric-making traditions and dyeing techniques of India, intricately patterned John Robshaw bedding is always vibrantly colorful. This is the place to go if you’re looking for something fancy that’s a little more exotic.
This Italian company offers classic bedding that’s super luxe, but still relaxed and comfortable, i.e., they do lots of natural nudes and soft, subtle patterns. They also make table linens, blankets, baby clothes, and more.
Washing and pressing your linens is nice, but it’s even nicer when you don’t have to. Volga Linens offers beautiful 100% eco-friendly, soft-crushed linens that are designed to look great without ironing. Still crisp and luxe with a lovely organic look—thanks to natural colors, visible hem-stitching, and thread work embroidery—Volga offers a cool and contemporary touch to any bedroom.
This French company has been in operation since 1845, meaning that Yves Delorme’s quality and attention to detail is hard to match. They incorporate plenty of delicate weaves and embroidery.
One of the many exciting things about living in England for a good part of the year is the perpetual discovery. I am constantly delighting in what might be very ordinary for people who are native to this land.
