She’s got the durability of your favorite pair of jeans and the decadence of a strawberry covered in chocolate. The velvet tufts create an air of elegance and high class; the brass studs give her a feeling of warmth, depth and humility. It’s the best of both worlds – working hard for you money, and then enjoying the benefits of it – all wrapped up in one.

The end-of-bed bench. It’s the place to sit and put on your shoes in the morning before you head out the door. The place that holds a couple of your favorite books and a chunky knit throw for you to pick up whenever you find a spare second to relax.
It’s a place to watch TV until you’re tired enough to actually climb into bed and fall asleep for the night. A place to sit and chat with the one you love about how your day went. And hopefully for most it’s a combination of a lot of these things together.
If you have the space, the use of an end-of-bed bench completes the overall feel and look of a bedroom. It’s the icing on the cake really. An end-of-bed bench can really be a pair of ottomans, a settee, a pair of chairs, or even a small sofa. Depending on how you use your space, one option may serve you better than another.
For instance if you’re not one to spend too much time in your bedroom, perhaps a pair of small ottomans or bench will serve you well for a quick place to sit down and put on your shoes. Or if you’re the person that spends time lounging in your bedroom throughout the day, a daybed or chaise at the foot of your bed will accommodate those moments of relaxation.
If you have children, maybe a small sofa or even a minimal seating group at the end of your bed can serve as a place to gather together. So take a look at your space and think of how you use your own bedroom to see what end-of-bed piece will work best for you.

Something that will take your fall/winter bed to the next level whilst you read a good book with a cup of hot cocoa and bing watch a whole series on Netflix is our Belgian linen sheets.
I know what you’re thinking – linen in the winter?! We all know that linen sheets keep you cooler in the summer, but they are also great at keeping you warm in the winter! They’re just luxurious and versatile like that. Another setback people think of when they think of linen sheets is the upkeep.
Well, when it comes to our Belgian linens, they only get better the more they are used. The fibers become stronger, softer, and wrinkle less, and they will last you 8 – 10 years! They are surprisingly simple to clean too. Throw them into the washer on a gentle cycle with medium temperature water. Then dry for 20 minutes and let them do the rest of the drying outside the machine. Clean and no wrinkles!
