Choosing the Right Bedding Sheets

Crown Goose also offers luxury goose down bedding in package sets.

Goose Down offers not only softness but provides excellent insulation to keep the body warm and secure.

CROWN GOOSE offers beautiful cover collections that range in style from classic to modern.

Goose Down Duvets and Comforters

Sleep crafted with the finest goose down and fabrics from around the world.”


LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 17, 2018 / — If you think about it, we spend a good amount of our life in our bed. (Netflix and chill, anyone?) So we talk about getting a good mattress, a good duvet and a good pillow. What about sheets?

With so many options to choose from, and with so many marketplaces that offer them, choosing the right bed sheets for you can seem more difficult than necessary. Several new bedding companies have emerged like Crown Goose, who are making luxurious bedding more and more appealing to even the budget-conscious folks. Instead of poor quality at cheap prices, that may not last too long anyway, Crown Goose offers fine quality bedding selection using high-quality fabric and craftsmanship.

Let’s dive into few details to look into if you’re in the market for new sheets.

Thread Count – The Hot Keyword
Every company wants to entice you with high thread count. But is it really as good as they say? And is the price worth it? To summarize, higher thread count does not necessarily make for softer, better quality sheets.

Why Is That?
Thread count (“TC”) refers to the the amount of woven threads that make up one square inch of the fabric, combining the horizontal threads (called “weft”) and vertical ones (“warp”). This number normally ranges from 150 up to 1,000 or more in fabrics like silk. But when it comes to cotton, like for all Crown Goose products, you need to be looking at more than just the TC number.

When producing sheets, only so many threads can fit on a loom. Many experts say 400 to 600 threads per inch is ideal. However, because TC is often used as part of a marketing tactic, some add extra threads by twisting them into the weft, increasing the TC number but providing no values in terms of adding to softness or durability. You may even find yourself wondering why 1,000 or more TC sheets pills and seems fragile to touch.

All that to say, focus on the fabric itself. Fabric used should be of durable fiber and if you wanted to dig deeper, with marks like 100S Cotton, which denotes the fineness of the fabric (contributing to the softness of your sheets) can also be considered.

Down to the Sheet Fabric

With thread count aside, there’s no question when it comes to softness or durability that the best cotton sheets are Percale and Sateen. Sateen used in Crown Goose bedding products is the closest fabric you can get that provides the silky satin feel without being very costly and fragile. It’s also naturally wrinkle-resistant, helping to create a clean, organized look in your bedroom.

Considering the amount of time you spend in bed, plus the importance of quality sleep, you may be doing yourself a favor by choosing or upgrading to premium bedding from the ol’ bedding from the broke college days. Crown Goose offers a wide variety of designs in cover sheets and fitted sheets, made with premium cotton material so head on over and see what suits you. If you’re not already, follow us on Instagram for style inspirations.

Sleep extraordinarily,

Crown Goose

Vestian Releases Kuala Lumpur Real Estate Market Overview Report

BENGALURU, KARNATAKA, INDIA, September 6, 2018 / — 23rd August 2018, Bengaluru, India – Vestian, an occupier focused workplace solutions firm, announced the release of its latest Kuala Lumpur Real Estate Market Overview. The report elucidates the city’s economic scenario as well as provides insights on its office market for the period Q2 2018.

The report highlights the key characteristics of the Kuala Lumpur office market, which, at present accounts for office space stock of around 123 million sq. ft. with an additional 16 million sq. ft. of office space is in the pipeline owing to several ongoing and upcoming large-scale developments. However, weak occupational demand compounded with large supply, is expected to put pressure on the market.

The report also indicates that by the end of 2018, vacancy levels across Greater Kuala Lumpur is expected to witness an increase, with the infusion of new supply, thereby creating downward pressure on rentals. Several infrastructure projects presently underway in the city are expected to become key drivers promoting economic growth.

Going forward, with changes in technology and the evolvement on how office occupiers are taking up space, co-working and serviced offices are projected to drive demand across a diverse mix of industries and professions. While demand for office spaces has not been consistent through the year, it is expected that flexible working spaces will create disruption in terms of business to many property-owners, especially buildings occupied by large multinational corporates in the banking and oil and gas sector. The IT, recruitment, e-commerce and shared services sector will also follow suit and push the demand for office space and leasing activities in the latter half of 2018.

“Statistics from the report indicate a relatively stable market with increased occupier interest towards decentralized office markets. However, the present lull in market demand with a plethora of office space supply line up will significantly impact rental and occupancy levels in the forthcoming period.” commented Shrinivas Rao, CEO-APAC, Vestian.
