Join Us October 1st: Caspari Holiday Essentials Preparation / Personalization Party


On Thursday October 1st from 11 am until 3 pm, The Linen Tree will be hosting Caspari personalization expert John Conts. Caspari’s entire line of paper greeting cards, napkins, plates and guest towels will be available to sample. We will be raffling away prizes, and John will be on hand to help you select and personalize the items you need for your upcoming Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas and holiday parties, making this a terrific opportunity to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

For those unfamiliar, Caspari is a publisher of exquisitely designed and printed paper products, with a reputation earned by reproducing the work of established artists and museums from around the world. The company was founded nearly 70 years ago, and initially imported Christmas cards made by European artists.

We will also have Care Cards on sale – this year’s proceeds benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the sale runs from October 16th to the 25th. And this will also serve as a perfect opportunity to order Uppercut (Sybaritic) placemats, Abyss towels and Downright down bedding just in time to guarantee delivery by the week of Thanksgiving.

What’s New: Summer ’15


It’s been a while since we last updated our blog – our apologies. If you are local and would like to make sure that you remain notified regarding sales and shows, please join our e-mail list. After you begin receiving e-mail, you will have the option of specifying the frequency of e-mail that you receive from us. You will also receive special offers, such as the ability to pre-shop our biggest sales of the year.


So, what’s new since our last update?

Our annual white sale wrapped up last week. However, we still have some merchandise on our floor marked down up to 75% off.

We now carry Frette bedding. Of all the brands we sell, Frette has the most storied history; Frette linens appeared in some of the world’s finest hotels before the start of the 20th century. Old catalogs can be purchased on eBay and are considered collectors items. The best sheets that we sell? That would be a bold statement, but Frette is the piece to our puzzle that allows us to state with aplomb that we sell a full assortment of the world’s finest linens.

Here is a preserved swatch book from 1892 (the line has changed since):


We have uploaded most of Abyss & Habidecor’s full line of bath linens and robes to our site. We have sold Super Pile and Twill towels in our store for ages, now you can view the full line (we are working on uploading more rugs) on our website. Here is a picture of Abyss’ waffle-weaved Pousada towel:


We have uploaded Barbacci’s customizable Giotto collection to our website. These linens are about as silky as any cotton sheet that we sell, and they come available in 118 colors and in a variety of embroidery, lace, and hemstitch styles. While we have sold Barbacci Giotto for years, never has it been so easy to view, select, and configure custom options.


Lastly: it is never too early to begin thinking about the holidays. Shop now and select from a full assortment of special order merchandise that can be ordered and received in time for December. Stop by, or give us a call. We are always happy to provide personalized assistance.

Slumber, Party. Join us on March 4th.


Tuesday, March 4th The Linen Tree will be hosting a one-day sale and trunk show.  Royal-Pedic mattresses & Sferra Milos linens – choice ingredients to a Royal night of sleep – will be 10% off.  Tom Sarkela, a representative from Royal-Pedic, will be on hand to present the Royal-Pedic line.

For those less familiar with Royal-Pedic, this is the company that has made mattresses for at least six US Presidents, including John F Kennedy who insisted on sleeping on a Royal-Pedic wherever he traveled.   It is also the company who manufactured a custom 120″ x 120″ mattress for Wilt Chamberlain, who instructed eight deliverymen to take his mattress away if it wouldn’t fit through his doorway.  Founder Abe Kaplan had moved to Los Angeles from Britain, where his employer supplied the Royal Family (with mattresses) at the time. All Royal-Pedic mattresses are made by hand and are generally chemical free.

Inside Royal-Pedic Mattresses

Royal-Flex innerspring unit

Royal Pedic’s Royal-Flex innerspring unit is the finest offset coil spring system available. It contains far more coils than is standard, making it ultra-sensitive to body contours. Each coil is double-heat tempered to enhance durability and provide for years of sag free use.

Royal-Pedic mattresses contain lots of fine quality natural materials

The Royal-Flex innerspring unit is often surrounded by finely harvested natural materials including long staple, American grown cotton; natural 100% talalay latex harvested from sustainable plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia; untreated lamb’s wool from New Zealand, a temperature regulating material; and lanolin, a natural dust mite repellant.

pristine staple cotton

The All Cotton Mattress – Royal-Pedic’s trademark mattress known for its firm, orthopedic support, contains more than fifty pounds of premium cotton padding in addition to a Royal-Flex innerspring unit. Natural materials ventilate body heat and provide greater durability.

all cotton mattress and pillowtop pad

The All Cotton mattress is too firm for some, but can be made just right with any combination of pillow-tops or quilt-tops. Here, an All Cotton mattress is pictured with a Royal-Cloud Pillowtop Pad. This combination is a best-seller at The Linen Tree.

Royal-Pedic's innovative seven zone latex core

The Royal Latex Mattress features an all-latex core instead of a Royal-Flex innerspring unit. This innovative mattress core was designed based on sleep studies at the Kirshgarten Clinic in Basel, Switzerland. It is different than other latex mattress cores – not just because of the quality of latex, harvest, and manufacture – but because it is shaped by seven distinct firmness zones. This allows for perfect body contour without sacrificing the firm, resilient support provided by natural talalay latex.

The details

Tom (from Royal-Pedic) will be in the store from about 11 am – 5 pm on March 4th. The sale will go all day long (10-6). Don’t forget that we will be offering 10% off Sferra Milos bedding too. As Royal-Pedic mattresses are one of the finest quality mattresses one can sleep on, Milos sheets are one some of the finest quality sheets one can sleep on. They feature a 1,020 thread count. Usually we would caution against putting too much stock in thread count, but Milos sheets feature the best of all worlds. They are carefully woven utilizing 100% Extra Long Staple (Giza 70) Egyptian Cotton. Read more about that here.
