California King Bed Contrary to popular belief, the California King bed (or Western King) actually has less square footage than the Standard/Eastern King. Measuring 72 by 84 inches, the California King is 6 inches narrower and 4 inches longer than a regular king sized bed. We have nearly a dozen sheet sets that come in this hard to find size, from our popular 600 thread count Egyptian cotton striped sheets, to our luxurious Italian-made Virtuoso sheets from Peacock Alley.
