As much as we love sleeping on a featherbed, we're not fans of being poked in the back by sharp feather quills while we sleep. Which is why we are super excited to introduce our new featherbed, which has an ingenious down pillow-top. The down pillow-top protects you from those painful quills, without taking away any firmness from the featherbed itself.
We were thrilled to see our bedding featured in House & Home's story, A Blank Canvas for Artful Living. Suzanne Cohons beautiful bedroom was the perfect canvas for our Versailles and Loft 2 Line in white on white embroidery.
1. Choose pure white goose down with a loft of 500+. There shouldn't be any feathers in a good duvet. Feathers are heavy and have quills which will poke through the fabric. Down clusters are light and airy, and do not have quills.
More importantly, make sure it's approved by the Down Association (in Canada it's DownMark and the label will be sewn into the product.) This ensures that the manufacturer is accurately stating the contents of their products on their labels. All of our products are certified, so when we say 'pure white goose down', you know that's exactly what you'll be getting.
2. The shell should be a high enough thread count to prevent leaking and noisy crunching. We recommend anything above 300+ Thread Count, preferably in a cotton satin. The softer the shell, the more light and airy the duvet will be. (Keep that in mind when purchasing your duvet cover too.)
3. The construction should be baffle box (not channels) to prevent clumping. You want to make sure the down is evenly distributed so there are no cold spots. (Tip: Fluff your duvet when you make your bed everyday to keep it looking great.)

Our friend Reiko Caron, Assistant Style Editor for House and Home, transformed a tiny city condo bedroom from builder-basic beige to beautiful shades of aqua and grey to mimic its Lake Ontario view. We're bias, but the highlight for us was our clean and sophisticated bedding ;). You can watch a video of the makeover by clicking the image above.
We came across this lovely bedroom on RelocatedLiving.com. As Isadora pointed out, the master bedroom should be a retreat for both members of the family. This is a great example of how to combine two styles into one and still make it work. A casual blend of his and hers, that still looks put together and interesting.(Click on images above to see individual product pages)
