I manage a retail store that only sells one brand of beds and several brands of high end linens and down including Sferra, Schlossberg/Bonjour, and Christian Fischbacher. My advice to you about buying linens is this: Understand the difference in jargon between buying sheets and top of the bed. 1. Buy 3 sets of QUALITY Egyptian Cotton sheets (top sheet, fitted sheet, 2 pillow cases). Know that not all Egyptian Cotton comes from cotton grown from the banks of the Nile River. Buy the real deal from a reputable manufacturer. The reason for buying 3 sets is to rotate them, 1 on the bed, 1 in the laundry, 1 clean and ready to go on the bed. 2 Decide if you want your sheets to be Percal or Sateen weave. The character of Percale is generally 'crisper' and sleeps cooler, while Sateen has a sheen and sleeps warmer. KNOW THAT THREAD COUNT ONLY MAKES UP A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE OVERALL QUALITY OF A SHEET! The finest quality sheeting I've seen to date is "Giza 45" by Sferra. It's a relatively new quality that's been available in the market for about 1 year. It's offered in a Percale, Sateen, and Jacquard. It is only available in white or ivory. It's an incredible fabric and was developed conceptually from high count Men's Dress Shirting from Borelli. Feel free to contact me to purchase any of the linens you see on any of those websites at a discount. Good luck and I hope this helped.
