For most people, the idea of luxury sheets is splashing out and buying some linen with a high thread count, but in Italy, a high end hotel now offers it’s guests the chance to sleep on GOLD sheets!
Yep, that’s right, the TownHouse Galleria, a luxury five star hotel in Milan is the first in the world to offer 24-karat gold woven sheets to their guests.
A statement on the hotel website states that:
“The 24 Carat Gold Sheets have been conceived by Alessandro Rosso Dubai, designed by Federico Buccellati and made by Piana Clerico 1582,”
“Sheets are made of a fabric woven with 24 Carat Gold (40%) and the most precious silk yarns. The parure includes one bottom sheet, four pillowcases, and one duvet cover. Piana Clerico 1582 certificate of guarantee guarantees the authenticity.”
The sheets are found in the Seven Stars Ottagono Presidential Suite of the hotel, and if you think you would like to try these out for yourself, good news!
You CAN buy a set for yourself, with an asking price of a lazy AUD$293,909!
Hmmmm…think we might have to stick to our humble cotton sheets for the time being…
