Piglet in Bed
Arguably one of the most aesthetically pleasing bed linen brands around if you’re into more of an earthy, cosy cocoon, biophilic kind of bedroom. The linen wrinkles actually look quite stunning (saves you an ironing job) and the best part is that’s it’s as comfortable as it is visually pleasing. pigletinbed.com
Yves Delorme is the epitome of European luxury – the family-owned linen brand has been around 1845, and has since been recognised by the French government as an ‘Enterprise of Living Patrimony’ – aka. these are perfectly-made sheets in which to greet your weekend lie-in. uk.yvesdelorme.com
The Sleep By Design range by Liberty is everything you’d expect from the quintessentially British brand. Think maximalist prints from their archives, in linens, printed sateen, and the signature Liberty Tawa Lawn cotton. libertylondon.com
East London Cloth
Love craftmanship, made-to-order, and supporting independent makers? Look no further than East London Cloth. There’s a range of options on offer: semi-customisable, ready-to-buy, one-offs. eastlondoncloth.co.uk
If earthy minimalism, waking up wrapped in cocooned in linen, and being lazy with ironing describes you, Cultiver will be your next interiors obsession. All the bedding is made with 100 percent European flax, and the linen is OEKO-TEX® certified (meaning it’s produced in the highest ethical standards for environmental and social production), all the good stuff. cultivergoods.co.uk
Double royal-warranted linen house Heirlooms has been manufacturing luxury bed linens from its workshops in West Sussex since 1984. Today, the brand supplies its bedsheets, towels and table linen to the finest private homes and establishments across the country and around the world – all while continuing to combine traditional craftsmanship with the finest materials. We love the Gatsby collection, which epitomises the creative design skills and luxury that Heirlooms has become synonymous with. Art Deco-inspired motifs nod to the glamour of the 1920s era, realised in an evocative palette of graphite greys, iridescent silvers and inky black. heirlooms-linens.com
The White Company
Chrissie Rucker MBE had the idea for The White Company when she couldn’t find well-designed, good quality white bed linens that were also affordable and decided to invest her savings into producing them herself – and thank goodness she did. Since The White Company launched in 1993, it has become the go-to brand for homeware of all sorts, from scented candles to bedding and chic pyjamas. Its endlessly luxurious bed linen collection includes a range of different styles, fabrics and shades, plus a number of eco-friendly options. This includes the Kara Hemp Linen collection, which is crafted from a blend of 52 per cent linen and 48 per cent hemp – why not give the duvet cover a whirl?thewhitecompany.com
A brand that was born at a London kitchen table in 1998 from a passion for beautiful table linen, today Gayle Warwick’s range includes bedding, handcloths and cushions. Each design reflects a focus on minutiae and an inherent love of detail which has become the brand’s signature, and bedding is no exception with English garden-inspired trellis designs and artisan hand embroidery. gaylewarwick.com
Gayle Warwick shares her top tips for choosing the perfect bed linen:
1. My first tip for choosing your bed linen is to select the right cotton. The quality of the cotton will determine not only how long your bed linen lasts and how it washes but also how it feels. We’ve been weaving our own organic cotton for 20 years. If you like a crisp, cool feel choose percale. If you prefer a more smooth finish choose sateen.
2. Thread counts are not a true indicator of quality. It’s the quality of the yarn that makes the difference, feel the material between your hands to see if it’s thick or thin. Try to find a cotton with body and some weight.
3. My third tip is to make your bed with layers to create an inviting feeling when you walk in the bedroom, suffused with cosiness and comfort. I start with two European squares to give height, then two Oxford pillowcases and two boudoirs plus favourite cushions. For sheeting begin with a fitted sheet, I always add a flat sheet on top folded over a blanket cover. I then fold my duvet at the end of the bed. In hot weather, skip the duvet and add a colourful throw or runner across the bottom of the bed. A blanket cover adds some colour, will keep your bed looking fresh all day and works as a layer to create texture.
4. The bed is the most intimate of space in your home, so my most important tip is to the take time to ‘nest’ and design it around your personal look.
