We’ve been fans of Foxford for a while, and not just of their snugglable lambs’ wool and cashmere throws and blankets. They have an excellent range of contemporary furniture and home accessories, seriously, check them out.
And now they’ve just launched a new range of cotton bed linen at Arnotts, designed by renowned Irish designer Helen McAlinden and the sheets’ pattern are as luxurious as its 300 thread count percale cotton.
Having been part of the Foxford design team for the last ten years, while also managing her own fashion brand from her South William Street store, Helen was inspired by summertime travel for this collection, whether to far-flung places, like the Ethnic Honeycomb and French Fern collections, or simply out into nature. “My favourite is the Green Leaf print, I love that feeling of bringing the outside in, and the clean contrast of verdant green with crisp white, with a bit of rich green velvet thrown into the mix with a cushion.”
She’s also excited about the 50:50 cotton and linen bed sheets that will be available in Arnotts from next week. Taking from the muted hues of her fashion collection, Helen feels that they offer a very relaxed and casual look. “It feels very ‘now’, and best of all I love that this washed fabric does not need to be ironed.”
