Choosing the Perfect Bedding
SFERRA-a name synonymous with style and integrity for over 100 years. Gennaro Sferra left Italy to visit the United States in the hopes of attracting a new market for his Venetian lace, cuffs and collars. In 1912 Genarro moved the company and his family from Venice to New York to open a shop on Fifth Avenue.
In the 1940s and 1950s, Gennaro's two sons took over the family business and SFERRA began production of some of the most luxurious linen collections of the day. SFERRA is the leading fine linen manufacturer in the world being the first bedding company to create the 1000 thread count Italian Egyptian Cotton sheets.
How do you know which bedding is right for you? Here are some tips for falling in love with your bedding.
1. Choose your type. Do you want a duvet cover or a comforter? The great thing about duvet covers are that they are economical and practical. You can take an old comforter that is still in good condition but no longer the style you are looking for and cover it with a duvet and many bedding companies, including SFERRA offer duvet cover sets to include sheets as well. You get everything you need for a bedroom in one package.
2. Look for your style. Do you like something more contemporary or traditional? Clean lines and very little detail are perfect for a contemporary look whereas florals, damasks, jacquards and some patterns lean more toward the traditional side.
3. Color. As in any decorating venture, color is vital in setting the tone for the room. For a calm and serene mood choose cool colors such as blues and greens. If you are wanting a sexy, seductive, vibrant look go more toward the warmer colors such as red and orange. Add yellow for a sophisticated look and neutrals to add balance. As always, black is a great accent color and adds a dramatic elegance that can really set off a room.
4. Thread count=quality. What thread count are you looking for? General rule of thumb regarding thread count is the higher the thread the count, the better the quality. Some bedding collections that offer a good quality thread count and are reasonably priced include: Marianna Stripe Bed Linens, and Grande Hotel Bed Linen all available from SFERRA.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Treat your sweetie with a new bedding set, it's something that they will love and you both will enjoy!
