Our Philosophy

Our beautiful collections of bed-linen, towels, table-linen and other household accessories provide the luxurious final polish needed for bedrooms, bathrooms and dining rooms. We carry many ranges of bed linen to suit either very contemporary rooms or very traditional ones. We also carry hundreds of table linen designs. But what makes us truly special is our bespoke service.

We can create any design - whether contemporary or traditional - in the style, quality, size, and colour of your choice. We will embroider tablecloths to match the pattern on your china; design bed linen with borders to complement curtain or headboard fabrics; reproduce coats of arms; or create embroideries for any chosen theme: from Sea-world or wild animals to racing, shooting or skiing. We are only limited by your imagination!

Monogrammed Linen Shop was created nearly 30 years ago when I moved to London from Paris, where I studied at the "Institut National des Arts Decoratifs". My training was primarily that of a draughtsman and colourist, yet I was always drawn to the beauty and technical proficiency required to produce fine embroidery. MLS allowed me to combine my passions with my skills. In France there has always been a tradition for accumulating beautiful linens. My upbringing was no exception. My grandmother's favourite pastime was to embroider her own table-linen. She would never be seen without her colourful threads and delicate needles. This is probably why I became fascinated by embroidery and fine linens.

In setting up MLS, I also realized that if one is to produce the most exquisite embroideries, one must first seek out the best possible support on which to embroider. Choosing the right fabric for manufacturing bed linen is crucial. Threads and materials used for bedding must be delicate, yet strong. Consider how much time we spend in bed. The average person may spend as much as 25 years in his lifetime between the sheets. It is for this simple reason that choosing the right bed linen is vitally important!

I am really proud to have joined forces with the famous French brand Yves Delorme whose expertise in bed linens and other household linens stems from the middle of the 19th century. We are now offering their extensive range of luxurious linens online and in our store.
