COOL sleeping sheets

At AREA, we seem to meet two kinds of people: those who prefer sheets that are more cool and crisp, and those who prize supreme softness in their sheets above all else. Crispy sheets are cool, cotton percale, often associated with luxury hotel beds. The softest sheets are cotton sateen, which drapes more, hugging you, and is also a bit warmer. Both are 100% cotton, but the hand feel and nature of each are different because of the weave. If you care about a fresh, crisp slumber above all else, percale is for you. Percale will also reach a buttery softness after use and washing, while still retaining its original character. Read below for an overview of our percale options, contact us for a sample, or visit us in store to feel in person.


White Area ANTON percale sheets on pillow cases close up.

Anton is our go-to for easy, no-fuss percale in many color options. It is cool to the touch with a slightly crinkled look that is made with a special weave. Anton makes a stylish quickly made bed: monochromatic fitted sheet, pillows, and duvet fluffed on top. Top sheet optional with this easy, relaxed look; no ironing or steaming; no tucking required.

Heather grey cotton percale AREA sheets in pillow cases close up

Slightly heavier than ANTON and smooth to the touch, HEATHER is choice for clean, modern bedding in two shades of grey. It is made from multiple cotton threads woven together, so it has visual dimension through tones on a flat plane. Crisp and soft, it is the warmest of the bunch while still being cool. This is a sheet that has sharp lines and is very at home in a sleek city apartment.

TAYLOR beige cotton percale AREA sheets on pillow cases close up

A hot sleeper's best friend, TAYLOR is our lightest, airiest sheet. Its name comes from a tailored shirt, because the fabric is essentially the same. Very smooth, almost slick, with a weave alternating in a white and beige microcheck. Perfect for the warmest summer nights, or refreshing under a big down comforter in the winter.
