The design projects that we get involved with encompass every element of reworking a space that you can think of, from knocking through walls and putting in sky lights, to the minute details such as discovering the perfect pillow for each of our clients. We are constantly striving to find new, innovative and luxurious products, so the Soak and Sleep AW16 event was a great opportunity to delve into the delights of duck down! They have a vast range of pillows and duvets which provide customers with whatever texture pillow takes their fancy. All of these touchable inners were presented in bowls so we could all to really get to grips with the materials themselves. They ranged from silky Hungarian Goose Down (our personal favourite!) to hypoallergenic synthetic microfibre, which not only keeps those alleges at bay, but also has been sanitised and treated so that it stays fresh and bacteria free, pretty techie for a pillow..
New Linen Collections
Not only did they focus on the fundamentals of picking the perfect base for your bedding, they also had a number of their beautifully elegant linens on show.
Their Artisan collection is wonderfully simple and understated, with a continual blue stitched pattern throughout, demonstrating the attention to detail that we strive for throughout all our projects. And if your taste is a little bolder, there was the Relaxed Cotton collection, made up of deep dark blues and dusty purples. A particular favourite in this collection was the Stonewashed Bedspread in purple, which is washed to give it a touchable, soft finish and makes it perfect for layering and adding that finishing touch to the perfectly styled bed.

New Furniture Collections
Soak and Sleep also introduced us to their new range of furniture, which got the team very excited! The Artisan collection was presented on a beautifully crafted Clerkenwell bed, which had resonances of the traditional Windsor Comb-Back chair, and was as clean and crisp and then linen dressing it. But the piece that blew us all away was the Cranbrook beside table! Similarly to the Clerkenwell bed, it had slick, clean lines and a deepness to the wood that was just right. It also had specific features and attention to detail like a little handy space above the draws for your laptop or book, as well as the great idea to put runners on the draws, which is so often forgotten about. Again, its those little details that we revel in and which makes Soak and Sleep one of our new favourites!
