Everyone has seen them, the little diagrams on linen and clothes labels that tell you how to care for the fabric. People look at them and promptly forget them because understanding what they mean is beyond most of us.
High-End Designer Products for the Savvy Buyer
Being a fashion designer and an interior decorator, I love finding the best quality linens, table top textiles and lingerie and sleepwear available in the market. Finding the best products often corresponds with the most expensive as well! Who doesn’t love a high-end designer quality gorgeous piece of sleepwear and lingerie? What could be more appealing than a designer label smooth as silk, beautifully constructed bedding set? Who isn’t awed by beautifully designed fine hand-worked table linens? The challenge for us aficionados of all things gorgeous is to find beauties that are also affordable.
When you were a child, do you remember rotating your bedroom furniture and feeling just how different your “new” space felt? Simply moving around the furniture was a refreshing thrill. Now that we are the masters of our own domain, we experience the same delight as we did as children, yet now we have the luxury of changing our bedding, tabletop and home accessories to update and refresh as the seasons evolve.
As the new spring arrives, lush winter bedding and tabletop linens get cleaned and go into storage.
