good quality/luxury bed linen?

I asked a family member for ideas for a christmas present - ever practical and very disinclined/able to spend money on themsleves she said they need some new white bed linen. Any ideas for some high quality stuff? ideally with beautiful packaging (shallow I know) so that it looks like a nice gift, rather than a household basic?

Beautiful hotel quality stuff can be found at King of Cottons (Surrey based outlet shops or mail order). Definitely worth a 'google'!

I've had some great bed linen from Peacock Blue. They have a limited range but their bedding got softer and softer with each wash. They do small gingham checks etc.

I've had some good bargains off Achica but you need to bide your time. Our 800 thread count duvet cover weighs a ton before you even get the duvet on, but it's bl**dy lovely to sleep in.

Am a sucker for bed linen. Off to check out other recommendations.

For quality there's a company called Mitre. They're used in all the posh hotels. But he packaging is crap so I'd say white company

I suggest you will also check this store. It offers quality bed linen too.

Here's the store page: www.manchesterhouse.com.au/bed-linen.html

I have been delighted with the bedding I ordered from here https://www.kingofcotton.co.uk/section.php/6/1/egyptian_cotton_bedlinen
Fantastic service too; I ordered it and it arrived here in France the next day.

I'd just buy the best in John Lewis. Get them to wrap it for you if you want the presentation. I've never been disappointed. Unlike with the White Company!

Oooh i like Dawsons, the best on i've seen was Monogrammed Linen shop in London. They did all sorts of brand like Yves Delorme

Nice stuff at Dawson's. We had some duvet covers from there last year - one Bedeck and one V&A, both lovely (though I think the V&A one may pill eventually).

They regularly have good bargains on sale.

Don't know about white mind you.

I didn't even know about half of the shops that have been recommended on here. I love some of the duvet cover sets on the Victoria Linen website but sadly most are out of my price range. I bought a beautiful duvet cover from here recently www.yorkshirelinen.com I hadn't heard of them before but they have some high street shops. Anyway, the quality is great, it washes really well and best of all it was cheap.

Bedeck or Sanderson are lovely. If you go to the house of Fraser outlet stores it's a bloody bargain too grin

BabsJansen Mon 06-Aug-12 15:59:28

Feather & black www.featherandblack.com/Bed-Linen.ice has nice non white stuff. I've been very pleased with the quality.

I had the same issue a few months ago when I was doing up my little ones play room. we found some useful information on www.cashmere-blanket.co.uk. good advice on how to buy, what to buy and how to look after your blankets, a factor that puts many people off buying them. Take a look and see what you think! x

White Company do have some non-white bedding... and I absolutely agree that theirs is head and shoulders above anything else we have had in terms of feel and durability. Definitely worth waiting for sales and/or discount vouchers, though. Other than that the top end John Lewis stuff is nice.

Tk maxx

monkeybubbles Mon 16-Jul-12 12:09:44

sorry to hijack this thread, but i'm also looking for really nice bedding, but not in white! i wish that white company had other colours sad
ideally, i would like a brown and turquoise set, but can't find one anywhere (had a lovely set from john lewis, but it really needs replacing)

any other recommendations?

There's some gorgeous bed linen here available at PureLivingCollection.com if you'd like something classic in style, but not necessarily plain white.
