Design as Destiny
Jean Servais Somian turned to art in times of hardship — and now he’s thriving.
“There are at least five layers that comprise a five-star, hotel-quality bed,” says interior designer Karen B. Wolf. And bed linens play a major role.
“A king-sized bed, for example, requires three Euro Shams in the back, king pillows two of which should be coverlet style shams to work with the bedding, two throw pillows, and a lumbar or shape to top it all off. This complicated layering is what makes your bed speak luxury, comfort and sweet dreams,” adds Wolf.
Aesthetics aside though, we are firm believers that true luxury lies in the construction of a piece. Or in this case, the fabrics your linens are made of. High-thread cotton, soft sateen, and fine cotton-and-silk blends guarantee you will be happily lazing around in your bed for hours.
Here we rounded up the most luxurious bed linens for any style.

Bella Notte Seraphina Fitted Sheet

The result is a fitted sheet so soft and silky that will not only keep your body cool and hydrated but that will also prevent you from waking up with frizzy hair.
