Thursday’s raffle ~ a short preview

This Thursday evening we will be raffling away more than $15k worth of merchandise as we celebrate 30 years in our current location. Raffle tickets will range from $50 to $100 with all proceeds going to charity. With some help from our suppliers, there will be lots of beautiful merchandise up for grabs. The items pictured below are just a sample of what to expect.

Windsor Platinum

Windsor Platinum bed by Downtown Company

From Downtown Company’s made to order Chateau Silk collection, Windsor Platinum is made in Germany by expert silk craftsman. The collection is woven of 100% silk. We will be raffling off an entire bed – king sheets, a king duvet cover, and five shams. The photo above shows the duvet cover and euro shams.

San Francisco Crown

San Francisco Crown Sculpture by Jan Barboglio

This handcrafted stone and gesso statue is finished in green with cast iron accents. Measuring 28″ tall by 10″ x 9″, it makes a unique, elegant centerpiece.

Giza 45 Percale
Giza 45 Percale

Sferra Giza 45 Percale

Along the hot, dry desert of the Sahara, the Nile has created an oasis that enjoys extraordinary weather conditions. The two extremes combine to create ideal conditions for growing the world’s best cotton – referred to as Giza cotton. All Giza cotton is assigned a number – the smaller the number the longer the staple and finer the thread. Many of the finest cotton sheets that we sell are woven from Giza 70 cotton. Giza 45 cotton is exactly what makes Sferra’s Giza 45 collection stand out from that pack. Because the thread is so fine, Giza 45 cotton was generally considered impractical if not unsuitable for bedding, until Sferra introduced this landmark collection several years ago.

Anyways – we’ll be raffling off four separate sheet sets of Giza 45 Percale. The fabric is exceptionally smooth and soft for a fabric that also feels crisp, cool and airy.

SDH Pouf Coverlet

SDH Pouf Coverlet

SDH’s opulent, lightly padded Pouf Coverlet consists of two layers of luxurious silk woven together to contain finely woven wool. It is pictured above in Caviar, but will be raffled away in Chinchilla (a discontinued tan color).

Other confirmed items to be raffled include throws from Lili Alessandra, Bella Notte and Sferra, a Revolution Centerpiece from Kosta Boda, and a duvet from Downright. Also: a “Secret” bed, with coverlet, from Celso de Lemos (which is made by the same people responsible for Abyss & Habidecor’s towels and rugs), and our friend Sal Romano at Poppa Artzee has contributed a gift certificate good for one custom “pet portrait.” The winner can choose from a throw pillow or a 12×12″ canvas.

All proceeds will benefit Mingus Manor Animal Sanctuary

Mingus Manor is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in Chandler that provides care for Senior and Special Needs pets. Founded by Karen Scherer, the Sanctuary’s mission is to provide the care needed to those pets, who are generally deemed unadoptable by other rescues and animal agencies.

Deep, Dreamy, Practical…

Bella Notte has just revealed it’s new additions for Fall 2018 (we don’t even have pricing for everything just yet). Three highlights for you…

Rosalina

rosalina in neutral

A gradation of watercolor hues are the dreamy backdrop to a secret garden presented atop glowing charmeuse. Three colorways – “Warm,” “Cool” and “Neutral” make for easy color coordination without sacrificing Rosalina’s distinct look and feel. Shams are pictured above in Neutral.

Cenote

The newest addition to Bella Notte’s colorbook – Cenote is a rich aquatic blue. As seen above, its depth stuns in velvet.

Helane Duvet Cover

A long anticipated replacement for Bella Notte’s original Satin Velvet Duvet Cover, the new Helane duvet cover is simple, elegant, and it fills a clear void in Bella Notte’s line. Velvet on top reverses to a luminous lyocell sateen (Madera Luxe).
