At some point got caught up with finding nice bed linens. Eventually settled on the following:
- Thomas Lee sheet and pillow set — a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillow cases. They're 500 thread count cotton sheets which seems fine to me, neither arbitrarily too high or too low. In any case, sheets are comfortable and reasonably priced.
- Libeco Belgian linens — have a couple pillow cases and I like their linen sheets
- Rough Linen — haven't gotten anything from here but local company and I like the simplicity of their products
- Pacific Coast pillows and comforters — very comfortable, got the firm and 'luxury' down pillow
If you're going to spend 6 – 8 hours a night on your bed, might as well make it comfortable. We're still sleeping on a $200 Serta mattress from 1999, it's still very comfortable — so it's not all about getting the most expensive, just what's comfortable.
