showroom Linen Lace and Patchwork Welcome to Linen Lace and Patchwork. The no 1 retailer in the UK for super king bedspreads, patchwork quilts, duvet covers, cushions, seat pads and ready made curtains. Quite simply the best range of modern and traditional bed linen and luxury home furnishings.
Linen, Lace & Patchwork has been trading since 1995 and is situated in South Benfleet, Essex, UK.  Jean Gibson the owner  traded successfully for seventeen years in the Broadway,  Leigh on Sea, before moving her business to her home, the showroom is just a short walk away.  She is enthusiastically recommended,  both far and wide, for her broad knowledge and expertise of dressing both antique and contemporary beds  and those bedding requirements. display of patchwork quilts and bedspreads

“Our department was probably cleaner than the average hospital ward today and we all took pride in that fact.  We were given in-depth training and sent away on courses to learn about the products we were selling.  We weren’t allowed to sit down or wear what we liked and talking to boys was frowned upon. And there were no calculators or electronic tills. So everything was added up in the head  - no mean feat pre-decimalisation  -  and you soon became very adept at it:  an education in itself.” Jean remembers fondly. seat pads display

Jean believes what makes her online business different is that she carries on the old traditions in the personal approach she offers to customers, inviting them into her home and garden both online or in person,  prior to visiting her impressive  400sq ft showroom.  
  She can send out swatches where possible, talk over possible choices for bedroom décor and  actively encourages customers to bring samples of wallpaper, carpets etc along with them to help with making the right choice.  And giving that most valuable of all commodities: time.
