About Orla Kiely
Orla Kiely is the daughter of an accountant and was born in Ireland. She studied textile design at the National College of Art and Design before becoming a wallpaper and fabric designer in New York. Following a successful stint in the States, Kiely moved to England and worked for Esprit while studying for her Master's Degree at the Royal College of Art in London. Her primary area of study was in knitwear, and she displayed a range of hats for her exit show at the College.
After getting her Master's, Kiely started designing handbags. During her first fashion week, her father pointed out that everybody was carrying handbags but very few people were wearing hats. In the late 1990s, she started laminating cloth to use for the production of handbags. In 1997, she and her husband Dermott Rowan established the Orla Kiely Partnership, and the Irish designer has gone on to create a huge range of clothing and accessories, and her designs have featured on even more items. You can find everything from garden trowels to the Citroen DS3 featuring her unique prints, leading to her being described by the Guardian newspaper as "the queen of prints".
Bedding plays an important part in the home. It can be used to enhance the look and design of any bedroom, whether it is the master bedroom, guest bedroom, or child's bedroom. It should look good because this helps make the bedroom a more inviting space, encouraging sleep and allowing you to enjoy the safe haven in your home. It also needs to be functional, providing cover and support, depending on the items in question.
While it is the duvet itself that covers you at night, the importance of the duvet cover should not be overlooked. The cover is the item that actually sits between the duvet and your skin. An uncomfortable cover can be scratchy and keep you awake at night, and while this might disappear after a few washes, some duvet covers only get worse after they have been through the washing machine. Ensure that you choose a duvet cover that matches your style, but also one that is comfortable and that can be easily cared for.
Similarly, pillow cases might not provide support in the same way that the pillow itself does, but it does sit against the head, the face, neck, and shoulders while you are sleeping. A soft pillow case will allow you to enjoy a good night's sleep, free from disturbance, and because you won't be tossing and turning as the pillow case scratches your head, it means that you won't suffer from the posture problems and health complaints that come from a poor night's sleep.
A lot of the duvet covers and pillow cases made by Orla Kiely are constructed from 100% cotton. 100% cotton is made from pure natural fibres. Cotton is very soft, and it can be machine washed. It is also breathable, and it enables you to regulate temperatures throughout the night, which means that it is a beneficial material during both the summer and winter months, providing warmth or cooling as required.
Choose from prints including the Tulip Mushroom flannelette cover or the Tiny Stem beige covers. At Just Linen we have a selection of these and other designs, on products ranging from pillow cases to duvet covers, so you can find the items you want and benefit from our exceptional customer service and competitive prices.
Curtains are another important element in room design, and another item that needs to perform a viable function while also looking great. They are designed to keep out light, are typically used at night, and they should look good because they can take up a lot of the design area in a room, especially when they are drawn closed.
Curtains, like bedding, come in standard sizes. When buying any curtains, including those that incorporate stunning Orla Kiely designs, you should check that you are getting the right size and the right drop for your room. Many of the Orla Kiely curtain designs have the same prints as the bedding sets, so that you can create a great looking room in your chosen design.
At Just Linen, we also stock Orla Kiely towels, showing off the textile designer's knowledge of textiles and materials. The towels are designed to be hardwearing and durable, but they are also designed to collect water. Poor quality towels do a bad job of drying a person because they do not absorb liquid; instead, they basically just push the liquid around. The more absorbent the towels, the more liquid they can collect with ease.
