Twenty years ago, Deborah Sharpe started her search for beautiful Italian linens, which led her to a linen company founded in Florence in 1912 by three Italian sisters who shared a passion for embroidery. Sharpe found that, not only did they produce exactly the type of bedding she desired, but also beautiful nightgowns and pajamas for adults and children. Sharpe knew the collection was one her friends and others would love, and worked with the company to create the line that makes up Deborah Sharpe Linens.
What's amazing about the collection is the diversity of fabrics, embroidery patterns, and colors. Bed sheets are available in all hues and in thread counts from 280 up to 1020 with 100 different embroidery patterns to choose from to personalize each set. The embroidery is extraordinary, ranging from simple polka dots to more ornate filigreed designs.
Sharpe, an art dealer and former West Coast Editor of SELF Magazine, recognized the quality and artistry of the firm and its willingness to customize each product, including bedcovers, duvets, pillowcases, shams, sheets, baby linens, blankets, pajamas, robes, towels and blankets. She works with each customer individually in order to meet their precise requests for sizes, fabrics, designs, decorations, and colors.
Her strong sense of color and design comes from her background in contemporary art (Sharpe was the owner of the Sharpe Gallery in the East Village and Soho when she lived in New York City in the eighties.) The result is the sophisticated point-of-view and understated style she brings to the product. People visit her in her atelier in Hollywood or she makes house calls to discuss what would look best in each client's bedroom. She has coordinated bedding for hundreds of clients, as well as hotels, yachts, and planes!
