Among other things, the pandemic has prompted many Canadians to withdraw into themselves and reflect on their living spaces. In our crusade to make our homes more functional and beautiful, objects and areas that were once thought about after the fact have become subjects of care and consideration.

One thing that occupied our thoughts during this change? The quality of our sheets. When you consider that we spend about one-third (one-third!) Of our lives sleeping, buying five-star linens suddenly seems more of a good investment than a frivolous purchase.

Now that fall has arrived, there’s never been a better time to turn your bedroom into a sanctuary. Just in time, Vancouver’s Once a Tree Furniture announced an exclusive partnership with Toronto-based fine bedding company Au Lit Fine Linens.
