Once available only to royalty and sold for its weight in gold among the Romans, silk has a storied history. And when it comes to bedding, silk attains near mythical stature.
With an incredibly soft hand, exquisite drape and soft luster, silk sheets are unquestionably glamorous. But there’s so much more to this legendary fabric.
From performance apparel to sheets, silk is prized for its temperature-regulating properties. In warmer weather (and for warm sleepers), it wicks away the moisture from your body, keeping you cool and comfortable. And when the mercury drops, it gently hugs your body and holds in heat.
Silk boasts health benefits, too. The most hypoallergenic of all fabrics, it’s an excellent choice for those with asthma and allergies.
But our favorite perk is all about beauty sleep … literally. The essential amino acids found in silk keep hair smooth and skin soft and help to prevent sleep lines and wrinkles. It also has a calming effect, paving the way for a restful night’s sleep. What’s not to love about that?
Paris. Dazzled by its glamour and captivated with its cuisine, we dream of the day we can return.
Until then, we can slumber with the same sophistication and glamour as found in the City of Light. Our gorgeous Paris Appartement bedding collections transform your master suite into your own Parisian escape.
Crisp bedding, fashioned after exquisite 18th century baroque tapestries and woven at a family-owned Italian mill of the finest Egyptian cotton. That’s the distinguished character of our Novara Italian Percale Bedding. With their cool, smooth hand, the sheets will have you dreaming of the heavenly salted caramel éclairs from L’Éclair de Génie. Here, the collection is beautifully layered with the Marchesca Matelassé Coverlet.
Born of the Renaissance, our damask flocked Marmont Bedding Collection is worthy of an aristocratic French estate. Every elegant piece is opulently appointed and told in midnight plum. Yet the pièce de résistance is the ultra-luxurious 1,000 thread count Noble sheet set, with embroidery inspired by the crests and crowns of European estates.
Relish the enchantment of our entire Paris Appartement with our Master Suite collection.
Dreamlike and elegant, the City of Light fires the imagination of writers, poets and painters. With its magnificent architecture, glittering neighborhoods and world-renowned cuisine, Paris personifies chic.
The city’s exhilarating savoir faire inspired one of our iconic Master Suite lifestyles – the Paris Appartement collection, with its unabashedly elegant twist on “French accent.”
This extraordinary retreat brims with culture and the sort of refined craftsmanship that is nearly a lost art.
These furnishings are masterfully constructed by highly skilled artisans working with exceptional materials. For the solid mahogany Elle Silver Leaf Tri-fold mirror, wood sculptors work 15 days to chisel and hone the carving.
And you can see the thoughtful detail on the shoe ottoman in Our Secret Shoe Obsession.
Lush fabric, hand finishes and exquisite details, such as luxe brush fringe, medallions and nailheads, espouse romance and sophistication.
The result: a look both effortless and elegant, upscale yet unpretentious. See more in our Master Suite Lookbook.
