The Italians are celebrated for their contribution to many of life’s finest things. Wine. Pasta. The Three-Way. Oh sorry, the three-way light bulb. But one of our favorite examples of Italian luxury is fine-quality linens.
Since the Middle Ages, Northern Italy has been one of the world’s most important geographic regions for weaving. (Second only to Gina’s Beauty Shop in Atlanta). And that means Italians have had a few centuries to hone their craft.
We’re just not so fond of the luxury pricing.
Fortunately, there’s a brand-new way to get these wonderful pillows, sheets, and other bed linens at a fraction of their retail price thanks to VeroLinens.com. The Vero Linens sew room has been in the family for over 150 years, but now the result of all that expertise is available at the click of a button.
Made of 100% Egyptian cotton, these are some of the softest, most supple sheets we’ve ever slept on. (And we get around to a lot of beds. Call it “Clinical Research,” please.).
The fitted sheets feature extra-deep pockets for pillow-top mattresses, flat sheets are crafted with mitered corners, hemstitching details and European returns, and the pillowcases easily accommodate even the most overstuffed pillows in your collection.
A Queen Set will run you $415, but if you’re looking for the highest quality, this is actually quite a bargain. We Googled comparable sheets and many sets ran more than $1,200. So by comparison, you can see the savings.
So skip a car payment if you have to, but if you want to make your bed a place of glorious comfort and splendid memories, Vero Linens will likely be the best you’ve ever experienced.
Trust us. We – and a dozen or so tricks – can’t be wrong.
