Re: Flat Bed Sheets?

I still, and likely will always, prefer a bed made with both fixed and flat sheets. Duvet then goes on top.

(A nod to the thread questioning why people air duvets out on balconies. )

I mostly buy my sheets from Landsend in the US, deliverable to Switzerland with the inexpensive pre-paid customs duty option via BorderFree.

I have US sized mattresses, UK/EU fixed sheets don't fit so I might as well buy all sheets as a set. Not to mention LE's high thread count/non-wrinkling sheets are of a quality far exceeding anything I have found for sale in Switzerland, at a significant savings. Stay way from low thread count, and unless you want to spend your life ironing, stay away from wrinkly fabrics.

I buy on sale, and take advantage of frequent special offers for further reductions. Just the other day I scooped up a sheet set regularly priced at ca 250 for ca. 60. A steal even with shipping and customs fees.

(LE has UK and DE sites, but these do not carry bedding or most of LE's home products.)

Other US retailers are LLBean, Garnet Hill, Company Store, and PotteryBarn, but they don't tend to have the great sales that LE does.

Re: Flat Bed Sheets?

I just wait for John Lewis to have a sale and stock up on bedding, at least the quality is predictable with a lot of other suppliers not so honest on definition of thread count. Got a stack of 800 thread count Egyptian cotton in their last sale on special. Not everyone into ironing their bedding but flat sheets much easier!

Re: Flat Bed Sheets?

The white company is also a good place to buy bedlinen. I usually buy in the sales which make it very good value and they will remove the UK VAT if you telephone them.
