Travellers seeking to recreate the hotel experience at home would do well to look to their bedding. Tradelinens has supplied luxury linens and duvets to world-class hotels such as The Connaught and Firmdale’s establishments for over 30 years, and now it has made its range available to the public at an e-store called Tielle Love Luxury.
“All our customers are united by the desire for a superior night’s sleep, and we want to help them achieve it,” says founding director Joe Molloy. A Pure European Goose Down duvet (£190; all prices for a double) within a 600-thread-count cover (£120, first picture) would certainly be a good place to start. These signature smooth, light linens with their silky drape took several years to perfect. A two-tier feather and down topper (Down Surround topper, £205, second picture) would add another layer of luxury, but for the complete boutique hotel experience you need to dress the bed too. To that end, the site offers three glamorous faux-fur throws: Alaskan Fox, Snow Fox and Nordic Rabbit (all £150).
Piles of generously proportioned and super-soft towels are another plus of hotel life, and the brilliant white ones on Tielle Love Luxury are made from pure Turkish 650gsm combed cotton. As well as single towels (from £9 for a hand towel), a bale (£45) comprising a face cloth, hand towel, bath towel and bath sheet is available.
Fans of pattern and colour will be disappointed, as the selection here is all white. The emphasis is on simple, top-quality products elegantly done.
