Cuddledown Life

Inaugural Post

February 18, 2009 by

Come in, come in! Please don’t mind the dust – we’re still moving in. Yes, just kick aside the boxes & grab a seat. Comfy? Good! I’m so glad you found us. Welcome to The Bedding Snob – Cuddledown’s blog for people who are passionate about both style & sleep. After all, sleep affects just about every aspect of our lives; shouldn’t it be fabulous?

I’ll be your host during your stay here at our little oasis of rest. Please be sure to let me know what I can do to make things more comfortable. My hope is that The Bedding Snob will become a place for fellow snobs to connect & discuss the finer things in sleep and bedding. Think of it as your sleep sanctuary resource, where we can chat about handy tips on bedroom decor, how to get quality sleep (even when on the go), and other fun things like what that talking bird in last night’s dream might mean. Not a snob yet? We’ll convert you! Before you know it, you’ll be up to your eyeballs in luxurious sateen and feather-light batiste (and if you don’t know what that means, I’ll be your bedding basics tutor!). Remember, the first rule of bedding snobbery is that cultivating relaxation need not leave you starving for style.

Be sure to keep coming back for tips & tricks of the trade that my sister-snobs & I have picked up over the years. We’ll answer your burning questions like “Does Thread Count Really Matter?” & “How In The World Do You Fold A Fitted Sheet?” I’ll also be posting fun surveys about various bed & sleep related topics. Of course, I’m dying to know your thoughts, so I hope you’ll comment. Don’t be shy! And let’s remember, bedding snobbery is not just for the ladies. I’ve known many a man who knows exactly what he’s sleeping on & has very definite opinions about it. So boys, if you’re out there, speak up!

And because I just want to jump right in, please check out our very first survey over there in the sidebar.

Thanks again for stopping by; tune in next week for some more snobbery goodness!

    Hello Ima,

    I’m so pleased to have found your new website especially after having lost touch with Cuddledown for so many years. It’s good to be back and I look forward to shopping with you again.

    Hi Lisa,
    That’s a great question & no doubt there are others who are struggling with the same problem!

    I talked with our Product people (the people who source & create the products we sell) & they had a couple of suggestions for you:

    – You could have a bedskirt made (say out of a flat sheet) or a 15″ bedskirt cut down; both of which can be done by Cuddledown. You would only need to contact our customer service department at 800-323-6793.

    – You could cover the box spring with a fitted sheet or a box spring cover (we offer this one).

    Hopefully one of these suggestions might help you & other readers with the same issue!

    I just purchased a low profile box spring (5″ deep) with a standard bed frame (7″). Where on earth can you buy a 12″ bedskirt? The low profile box springs are great and sales representatives are pushing them…but no one tells you that its impossible to find a bedskirt. Thanks!

    Hi All – thanks for all of the encouragement. We’re very excited about launching The Bedding Snob and look forward to lots of discussion & comments!

    Karin, you pose a great question that I hope to explore in more detail in a later post. The short answer is that both wool & down make excellent comforters. A lot depends on personal preference. For example, a wool comforter is more likely to be thicker, heavier, & flatter, whereas a down comforter will have that classic “poofy” loft that looks so absolutely cuddly. But either will keep you cozy & warm. Please check back in the future when I discuss this in more depth!

    I love everything about Cuddledown(especially the staff that is very helpful when I’m there and even when i make a call to find something upstairs). Except that it isn’t close enough to home….Amherst MA…Any info on wool conforters compared to down? Thanks in advance
