Percale is a plain-weave fabric, meaning that the warp and the weft threads cross over and under each other one at a time. The threads are tightly woven, which results in a fine texture and finish. Sateen sheets, meanwhile, have a luxurious look and feel, made in a satin weave in which warp threads interlace with filling threads, resulting in a lustrous, smooth-faced, durable fabric. “Take time to feel the fabric when you make your choice,” Warden adds.
While you might think the only way to dress a bed is with pillows and throws, Warden is always on the lookout for the next trend: ”We are looking at different ways to layer the bed,” she says. “Plain simple white sets with truly dramatic light quilts, runners and shams, to highly elaborate designs where the bed is built up with many pieces.”
Set upon marshmallowy pillows and duvets, these eye-catching, soft-as-butter sheets will have you making every excuse to hit the snooze button.
