A couple of years ago when I worked as an Interior Designer for a luxury resort, the design team was tasked with finding a new source of bed linens, and even new bath towels, for the entire resort. For weeks the team sorted through samples, talked to reps and even took towels and sheets home to try out. I learned a lot about sheets and linens during that time, mostly about very expensive hotel quality sheets, so the comfortable luxury of a good set of sheets has stuck with me since then.

Since that time, I have been looking for the same luxury for my home – but definitely at a fraction of the price. I once found what I thought was the softest feeling luxury set that had a high thread count, only to have holes wear through in the fitted sheet within a year.
I also had a friend say that 200 thread count sheets are just as comfortable as 400 thread count sheets – you just have to wash them over 200 times to make them soft enough. Who has time to waste on a good night’s sleep waiting to need to wash your sheets over 200 times! I would rather have the luxury of a good set of sheets from the very beginning.
I have tried brands labeled as hotel quality and had good and bad experiences with them. The truth is you can spend a lot of money on high thread count sheets and still miss that sleeping on a cloud feeling. And the feel of the pillow cases are just as important as the sheets themselves. What it comes down to is finding a brand with the feel and comfort you like and sticking with them.
A good set of sheets is such a luxury and a comfort each night.
Recently I was contacted by California Design Den with the opportunity to try out a set of their luxury sheets. Even though I had shopped earlier this year a set of sheets for our king size bed that we were pretty happy with so far, I am not about turn down an opportunity to find maybe an even better, and softer set of sheets.
So California Design Den sent me a king size set of 400 thread count, 100% pure cotton, sateen weave sheets. I was impressed with the softness even before I pulled them out of the package. After a quick first wash, we put them on our bed, and have been using them for about three weeks so far. And love them!
The sheets and pillowcases are soft and satiny feeling and oh so comfortable all night long. And the price of these sheets are such a good deal too for the quality you receive right from the beginning.
The second day the sheets were on the bed, I walked in to our bedroom and found this.
Even the dog wanted to experience the luxury of a good set of sheets.
I guess Shiloh loved the feel of the new sheets too because he pulled back the comforter just to lay on them. Silly dog. After several washings of course (he keeps doing this) we are still impressed with the quality of these sheets and will definitely be buying more for the other bedrooms in our home.
