The sheets for the box mattress are one of the small, indispensable aids on a daily basis for Dorte, our Store Manager in Copenhagen. “They remain firmly attached to the bed and completely straight. I have experienced periods where I haven’t slept well and been forced to get up and straighten the sheet but these sheets stay where they are.” The sheets help Dorte achieve a better night’s sleep and a more rested day.
The FACET bed linen in the colour of Quartz is another favourite in Dorte’s bedroom. This is mainly due to the fact that it is soft and pleasant to sleep in, but there is also another reason why Georg Jensen Damask bed linen generally bears a particular stamp of quality in Dorte's family: “When my son was 8 years old, he had an old set of bed linen with a football print, which he was very happy with. It wasn’t very nice and had to be boil-washed on a regular basis. The print also came off onto the wall by the bed. It was washed one day and couldn’t get dry in time. He was therefore told that he had to take some other bed linen in from mum and dad’s room. He took a set of Georg Jensen Damask bed linen without realising. He came completely unprompted the following day and said, ‘I will give up my football bed linen if I can have bed linen like this.’ You just know that the quality is good when a boy of that age comes and says so.”
There is a great deal of lime in the water where Dorte lives in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. It is therefore necessary for her to do her washing more frequently and she likes to use DAMAVASK for her cotton textiles. The detergent helps the fabric to retain its colour and softness, and a single wash requires just 2 tablespoons of DAMAVASK. DAMAVASK is therefore high up on the list of Dorte’s favourites.
The LINEN dishcloths are popular in Dorte’s home, as they are ideal for cleaning in the kitchen. They also receive bonus points for having a modern focus on the environment and natural materials. “We would like to do something about excluding the plastic from the textiles we use in the housekeeping, and this desire is fulfilled by using these dishcloths.”
The ARNE JACOBSEN damask tablecloth with coated surface is a permanent fixture in Dorte’s home. Functionality is very important in helping the everyday life of a family with children to run smoothly. Dorte therefore uses the tablecloth for the family's delicate wooden dining table, which is unable to withstand stains.
Last but not least, DAMASK TERRY bath towels and guest towels in Dusty Army are popular in Dorte’s home. “They have a beautiful colour, as well as being nice and soft. You can easily feel that the quality is good. It is simply pure well-being for the body and soul to dry yourself with them.”
