From draperies to bedding to trousseaus, linen has long since been a tactile
treat. After all, the flax fiber has been around since 30,000 B.C. when it was
first used to secure Egyptian pharaohs in their tombs. At once durable and
elegant, linen embodies a textural richness that's simply unparalleled, which
is why we're incorporating it into our bedrooms. Case in point: this
sophisticated bedding embellished with crocheted lace.
