After a long and exhausting day, you need a comfy bed to sink into and get some rest to rejuvenate your body. However, if you ignore the appearance and feel of your bedding, you may find yourself tossing and turning in bed all night. Here are some helpful hints for selecting the correct bedding and having a pleasant and comfortable night's sleep.

Sheets, Pillowcases and Blankets

Choosing the best bed sheets, pillowcases, and blankets is more than thread count. Make sure to pick a fitted sheet that fits the depth of your mattress (our fitted sheets are a generous 16" deep). Choose the fiber that best suits your sleeping patterns and desired hand feel. It's also good to keep at least two sets of sheets per bed, so you can always make the bed regardless of when you do your laundry.

Quilts, Duvets and Coverlets

Consider the covering on your bed to be the focal point of your room. Dress it up or down with ornamental cushions, decorate with a rug, and finish with lighting, art, and accessories. Look for solid color linens that make your headboard the focal point of the space if you have a statement-making headboard. You can never go wrong with pure white bedding for a classic appearance that fits in any setting.

Bed Pillows

Pure domestic down fill produces loft and moldable cushion, making it ideal for all sleepers. Fine duck feathers combined with down if you like pillows with a more robust support core. Premium Italian synthetic microfiber gives a down-like sensation while being allergen-free.

Mattresses and Foundations

The cornerstone of a comfy bed is a high-quality mattress. Look for features that promote sleep quality, such as a coil system that reduces weight and movement transfer from one side of the mattress to the other. A mesh border allows the mattress to breathe and increases ventilation.
