In any hotel stay, even the most impeccable customer service and delicious dining do not a luxury experience make—not without a few essential details. For the most part, the heart of your hotel stay is in the comfort of your bed and bath. Plush pillows, inviting soap scents, and satiny sheets are all the hallmarks of a true luxury experience. And if you’ve ever been tempted to smuggle your hotel sheets home, now you can (legally)—thanks to Larry King.
Yes, that’s right. The bespectacled, suspender-clad journalist seems like an unlikely candidate for peddling plush terrycloth bathrobes and jacquard bed linen. But that’s exactly what’s happened, with King becoming business partner to his wife, Shawn, and launching their Sleep Like a King brand of luxury bedsheets and other bedroom accouterments.
The Kings were inspired to create Sleep Like a King after visiting the Wynn and Four Seasons hotels in Las Vegas and being particularly impressed by their bedding. Shawn King tells the LA Times that she made a point to visit the Four Seasons’ home shop and purchase a set of sheets for her own. After discovering that the sheets were manufactured by hotel bed linen supplier Sobel Westex, the Kings decided to partner with the company and create a line of luxury bedding at department-store prices. By using a direct-to-consumer model, the Kings explain, they can offer their customers opulent bed and bath wares without shelling out for a Four Seasons stay.
Drawing visual and conceptual inspiration from the Kings’ world travels, Sleep Like a King’s debut collection (launching Summer 2016) includes 100% cotton bed linen, lush bath towels, cozy blankets, alpaca throws, pillow, robes, candles, fragrance diffusers and soaps. The line has been carefully and lovingly designed to reflect the spirit of the Kings’ favorite locales, with sheets and scents named for Soho, Hollywood and Rome. Sleep Like a King’s sheets, in particular, reflect their luxury heritage. Sheets are available in 400,500 and 700 thread counts, in peaceful, muted colors like rose, cream and dove grey, and feature subtle details like Swiss dot jacquard or border embroidery.
Having these luxury sheets lull you to sleep will elevate the meaning of the word “staycation” to new heights.
