November News

Penguins duvet cover
Penguins duvet cover

It’s been a while since our last update; we’ve been busy with stocktaking, but now that we’re done, we’ve looked about us and realised that Christmas is already in full swing here in Cork City! Never fear though for we’re well prepared for not just the Christmas season but the whole of winter, with everything you’ll need to stay cosy and warm throughout.

As always, we have 13.5 tog quilts available with both natural and synthetic fillings. There’s a wide selection of blankets also, from basic cotton mix blankets in plain colours to luxurious animal print throws, so whether you want to cover up on the bed or the couch, there’s something here for you.

Even our duvet sets have definite winter themes: our stag themed covers are selling out fast, while the cute penguins cover is a sure winner this year too.

Electric blankets are back in stock in single and double size only. Plus there’s still some Christmassy table-linen left in stock-get it before it’s gone and impress your visitors this year!

300 thread count sheets (plus matching duvet sets) now in stock, in cream or white.

If you are planning on having visitors stay over this year, don’t forget to stock up on extra sheets and pillowcases: we have 300 thread count poly-cotton self stripe sheets in cream or white from Catherine Lansfield, and Dorma full cotton sheets in cream and white also, all at affordable prices. Only problem is it may be hard to shift the visitors once they’ve got a taste of your good bedlinen…maybe just keep them for yourself then!

Great bargains going in pillows also, with foam pillows at only €25 each, choose from a temperature regulating foam pillow or an antibacterial one.

We still have much more to come this winter including our always anticipated tapestry cushions. Check out our Coming Soon page, and stay tuned to our blog for more updates soon.


It’s the end of the year!

Enjoy your bank holiday and any jazz you may encounter this weekend.

Well, at least it is for us! If you pass by and happen to see us with a slightly dazed expression, it’s because we’ve been busy counting all those tea towels; 1,267, 1,268, 1,200 and – no start again 😦 Annual stocktaking is just one of the reasons we’re so full of the ‘joie de vivre’ at the moment 🙂

The really good news though, is that there really is some great value as we make way for all the new Autumn stock arriving in November. Have a look at the “Vantona’ Egyptian cotton sheets or the “Essentials” range of duvet covers by ‘Bedeck’ – all at half-price or less.

As a special offer for the Jazz Weekend, we are giving 10% off all duvets & pillows from “The Fine Bedding Co.” as well as 10% off the range of novelty duvet covers from “Just Kidding”, the new brand from Australia which is exclusive in Cork to Household Linens.

Keeping warm in winter..


Already, we find ourselves well into October and on several mornings recently, we have woken to feel a chill in the air. Now is the ideal time to stock up on sheets and quilts that will keep you warm throughout the winter months ahead.

One of our Riggs flannelette sheets (in stone).

The ever popular flannelette sheets are back in store again. This year, they have all been supplied by Riggs, a UK based company who make up the sheets themselves at their premises in Stockport. As well as stocking individual fitted and flat sheets in four different colours (white, cream, stone and green), we also have flannelette sheet sets on sale in pink, blue and beige. The sheet sets consist of a plain fitted sheet, a matching pinstriped flat sheet and pillowcase(s).

If you want to really cosy up this winter, we also have a flannelette duvet cover set available from First Avenue: Brooklyn is a smart cream and grey check set. Floral designs will be available again in November.

Still feeling a chill?! Well, the traditional thermal mattress cover is back in store also, and available in single, double and king size. So there’s no need to feel the cold this year!

It’s worth taking a look at our Image Gallery at the moment, as we’ve just got in four new children’s bed-linen designs as well as plenty of new ready-made curtains. Enjoy!






Rain, rain go away…

‘Liliana’ by Sheridan

In our last post, we wondered at how quickly June had come along; now we can still hardly believe it’s June when we hear and see the rain pounding the pavements outside. Nevertheless, we have two new Sheridan designs gauranteed to brighten your day. Liliana (pictured) is a pretty floral with rich pinks and greens on a white background, while Milner is a more traditional Sheridan design with soft golds and whites. As always, you can browse these and all our designs in the Image Gallery.

As of today, we have 18″ deep fitted sheets in stock. There has been a demand for these in recent times, as new beds tend to have very deep mattresses, particularly those made from memory foam. Standard fitted sheets do not always fit these beds so well, and end up looking untidy. It’s a good idea to measure the height of your mattress so that you can check the depth of fitted sheets when making a purchase. Different brands can have different depths so don’t forget to check before buying.

There’s another great bargain in the pillow section of the shop this month. Pairs of quilted hollowfibre pillows are selling at only €20. Great value for such comfy pillows. Come in and test them out!

Finally, we’ll keep our summer hopes alive (it is only June after all!), and tell ye about our new range of filled cushions and seat-pads in nautical themes. The little beach house cushion is a must for holiday homes or seaside caravans. Bring on the sun!!

April Update!

Today, we’ve launched our new Ready-made curtains image gallery, so that you can browse through the various patterns available. Of course, you can do this anytime in store, and samples of each curtain are available to take home for a night or two. If possible, it’s always best to see a material in the light of your own home and against the paint or wallpaper in your room.

Many of you will be glad to hear that the Helena Springfield range of full cotton sheets have returned to our store, now available in five different colours: white, cream, biscuit, aqua and raspberry. We stock single through to super-king sheets in both fitted and flat, as well as standard pillowcases. Go visit our Facebook page where you will find a voucher for 20% off these sheets, valid until May 12th. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook!

That’s our news for today!
