My lovely new linen from Linenshed

If my bed could talk, it would tell me that it’s bored by butterflies and fatigued by florals. And after sleeping in Sheridan sheets for more years than I care to count, I feel the same. So when choosing my latest bedding, I went for French linen, pure and simple.

Romantic and ruffled – my hand-frayed super king duvet cover BD73

After much global Googling, I decided to order from Linenshed. A Hong Kong-based company that has received excellent reviews from various online sources, including one of my favourite house-y sites, Apartment Therapy. Check it out if you haven’t already (once you’ve finished reading this. :))

The duvet covers come in 4 different styles – hand-frayed, ruffled, plain and double-sided

Nothing was too much trouble for Linenshed. Not having shipped to Bahrain before, the site wasn’t set up for it. No matter, Linenshed’s Babette got right onto it, and within the hour I was fiendishly filling up my virtual shopping cart. Chi-ching! And 7 days later, my lovely linen landed on my doorstep.

Linenshed sent me swatches to prepare for my next purchase – clever!

I love EVERYTHING about my new linen.

  • the fabric – linen softens as it ages and feels so much more substantial than cotton
  • the colour – a softly-muted salmon that’s oh-so feminine
  • the duvet cover – comes with ties in the inner corners to keep your duvet in place, and the prettiest mother of pearl buttons
  • the fitted sheet – elasticized all around and deeper edges to keep it in place perfectly
  • the pillow covers – complete with an extra-generous fold of fabric inside to prevent the pillows from popping out
  • the care – linen may be machine washed (this prevents fibres from drying out) and doesn’t require ironing
  • the company – Linenshed will customise colours, sizes, and styles as much as possible, and also offers linen table cloths, curtains and clothes
  • the prices – excellent value for a high-quality product
  • the shipping – BD43 for 2 sets of super king bedding, and yes they ship to Bahrain (you’re welcome ;))
