The Pefect Summer Sheets… Belgian Linen

We’re very happy to offer Echelon Home’s Washed Belgian Linen collection of sheet sets, duvet cover sets, pillow cases and euro shams!

Linen has a wonderful texture, is highly breathable and is more durable than cotton. It’s certainly great to sleep on in the summer, but in fact, it’s great all year round!  If you’re not familiar with linen, it’s important to appreciate the unique texture, and that it takes some time to achieve the buttery softness that is the hallmark of linen.  Echelon’s linen bedding is pre-washed for softness, but they keep getting better with each wash!

BELG-LIN-SS-WHT

The classic color palette offers great choices for any decor.

SaveLinen tends to be VERY expensive, prohibitively so for many, this has changed with Echelon Home’s Washed Belgian Linen.  A queen sheet set is $169, which is about 30% less than leading retailers!  It’s a great time to give linen bedding a try.  Use coupon code FREESHIP at checkout for free shipping on any order over $50.

Lighten up with a new coverlet or duvet & free shipping for our blog readers!

Now that we’re rapidly approaching summer 2015, it is definitely time to make sure your bedding is ready for the new season as well!  During the hot summer it can be difficult to find the right amount of covers… with A/C blasting, you may still need some warmth, or you may just want a very light layer.

Here are some options.:

1.  If you like to keep your home really cool with a lot of A/C, a summer weight down duvet may be a good option for you!  Cascada Summer Weight Down Duvet is made with 600+ fill power down and offers very high quality at a moderate price.

2.  Another great option is a lightweight quilted coverlet/blanket.  We have three options, all by Echelon Home.  They’re made with cotton sateen and filled with poly fiber fill.  Here is the Laguna coverlet with a quilted geometric pattern, and a queen is just $89.  A really great price point for this level of quality!

LAGUNA_COV-BL_MAIN

The two other options, Sonoma and Monterey are great choices as well.

As a special thank you to our blog readers, here is a coupon code for Free Shipping ($50 minimum order required):  FREESHIP.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Welcoming Pom Pom at Home to Linenplace

We are incredibly please to be offering the gorgeous and casually-chic Pom Pom at Home bedding and bath line!

Logo_big

Here’s a little about them:
“As natives of Belgium, we naturally have a passion for everything “linen,” resulting in a crib and adult bedding line made of 100% linen. Our lines are versatile; with delicate embroidery, crushed velvet and hand-crocheted lace on the finest and softest linen. Pom Pom at Home embodies a “lived in” elegant look that is still relaxed and casual. This is the main inspiration to this unique collection which transforms everyday experiences into a sheer delight. We have also recognized that we live in a time where we are globally conscious of how our daily actions affect our environment. What better way to start and end your day than by having our linens as a reminder of how you did your part. Our 100% certified organic linens are made from the purest of flax fibers. The combination of luxury and environmental sustainability has never been so comfortable. Pom Pom at Home embraces the essence of life’s enjoyment. Its products evoke a sense of romantic glamour, peaceful memories, gentleness and freshness. Whether it is Pom Pom at Home’s fine linens, accessories or fragrances, all are made with the highest quality and attention to detail, always with a passion for beauty! Our vision is that each of our products will fill you with delight and bring you that little touch of luxury that makes life more pleasurable.”

Here at Linenplace, we’re crazy about 100% linen, so we couldn’t be more happy about offering their linen sheets, duvet covers, bedskirts. We also offer Pom Pom’s comfy wool blend  throw blankets and decorative shams! Their cotton shower curtains will add just the right amount of feminine elegance to your bathroom (but not too much that your husband or boyfriend will protest, LOL!)

Great Valentine Gift: Draper Stripe Throw

I simply adore throw blankets… I must have 4 or 5 of them.  I prefer natural fibers like wool and cashmere. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I think our Draper Stripe Throw by Dwell Studio would be a wonderful gift!   We have both the chinois blue and the major brown in stock.  This blanket is made with baby alpaca (95%) and just a touch of polyester (5%), and is a generous 50 x 70 inches in size.

So what is alpaca exactly… it’s a lot like wool. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it: “Alpaca fleece is a lustrous and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and bears no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. It is also soft and luxurious. In physical structure, alpaca fiber is somewhat akin to hair, being very glossy. The preparing, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing process of alpaca is very similar to the process used for wool. Alpaca fiber is also flame-resistant, and meets the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s standards.”

Like any fiber, different qualities certainly exist… the alpaca used in Dwell Studio’s throw is very high quality making it super soft.  I have seen samples of lesser quality that do not have the same beautiful hand-feel.  You can be sure with this blanket you’re getting the best!

Decor Accents & the Oslo Duvet Cover

I’m really fond of our Oslo duvet cover set by Echelon that is currently on sale (20% off), so I thought it would be fun to think of some pieces that would look good with it.  The scale and linking pattern of Oslo make it fairly modern looking, so I’d pair it with modern and mid-century modern pieces.

I like rooms with some wood in them. Wood furniture warms things up, as opposed to say the super sleek look of lacquered items.

I think every bedroom needs at least one chair.  I always end up draping things on them.  This is a super cool Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair.

I really like these Design by Conran ball lamps from JC Penney of all places.  Yes, this is the same “Conran” as The Conran Shop!

These look so cool, but are not very practical for bedside lamps, so I think I’d want one as accent lamp.

With wood items, I don’t think it’s necessary at all to have them all the exact same wood finish… looking too “matchy matchy” is so boring.

January Sale – Duvet Covers: Kaleidoscope, Odessa and Oslo

We’re in the midst of the cold winter season and you may be feeling like it’s time for a new duvet cover.  Right now, we’re offering 20% off on 3 great patterns!

Kaleidoscope is a 280 thread count sateen weave made with 100% cotton. It’s available in this cheerful light turquoise color, or a neutral flax. With a crisp white background, it looks fresh and modern.

Odessa is also a 280 thread count sateen weave made with 100% cotton. This modern look is available in blue, blackberry or linden green.  The purple shade of blackberry is a top color of 2014 according to Pantone!  (see the blackberry color by clicking the link)
ODE_blue

Oslo is a poly/cotton blend in a 300 thread count sateen weave.  What makes it really interesting is that it’s a crossweave.  The warp yarns are 100% cotton and the weft yarns are polyester… so on the front side of the fabric you get the feeling of 100% cotton. At the same time the polyester content helps it resist wrinkling after washing and drying.  We also love the huge scale of the links pattern… really unique and striking!

Neutral Bedroom with Linen Bedding

I am loving this neutral bedroom from Lonny Magazine’s December/January 2014 issue! The linen bedding is gorgeous.  I am a huge fan of linen: the texture, the way it gets so super soft after several washings; and it is also incredibly durable.

Here at Linenplace, we’ll have Peacock Alley‘s new linen/cotton blend sheets available in a few weeks!  They are 30% linen and 70% cotton, and made in Europe.  Classic white with a simple yet elegant hemstitch detail, you can’t go wrong with sheets like this!

A linen cotton blend is a good compromise because you get the benefits of linen, with less wrinkling. (linen is definitely known for wrinkling a lot, but it is so worth it) Also, 100% linen sheets can be insanely expensive!
