France has long been famous for its style. The French “look” has developed over hundreds of years reflecting the savoir-faire, know-how and attention to detail that is a particularly French thing. From the refined grandeur of Chateau style to Provencal, Parisian and rustic styles, the French look really does suit all tastes. And there are constant themes, including the use of blue and white as key colours and great quality fabrics – especially bed linen.

Perfect French blue and white bedding
La Chambre Paris keep it simple when it comes to colour. Blue and white – the most classic colour combination. Keep to one colour or mix them up and totally get that oh-so-French chic look.
Blue and white has been an elegant combination for centuries – the most popular combo in porcelain and pottery more than 1000 years ago. But it was in the 18th century that the pairing of these two colours really became popular in fabric form in France. The contrast is simple but elegant a quintessentially French look. White and blue is used in the most elegant bedroom of luxury hotels in chateaux and manoirs, in farmhouses and homes throughout France. White and blue in home décor, are as French as the Eiffel Tower.

Bed sheets to fall in love with
My conclusion – absolutely beautiful bed linen. I’m buying more (that’s my bedroom above and I think the linen looks amazing!). There are several more reasons I’m loving La Chambre Paris:
Affordable. The company cut out the middle man and work with a single partner, an artisan company who have been making the highest quality fabrics to traditional methods that are eco-responsible and sustainable, for three generations.
Non iron. Yep, we’ve all got better things to do right? Just wash, dry and you’re good to go.
Eco-friendly. For every order placed, La Chambre Paris plant 10 trees. They support Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit project to plant trees in area where deforestation has caused poverty and environmental problems.
So French in the detail. Beautifully stitched, there are even little labels indicating the longest and shortest sides of fitted sheets so you don’t have to try to work it out. Love that.
Comfortable, luxurious, soft and strong. I love the French washed linen for it’s light and airy, cool, fresh texture. It makes me feel like I’m staying in a luxury hotel – in my own bed.
And they deliver to anywhere in the world.
