We spend so much of our lives sleeping, it's only natural that we'd want the best for our beds. From finding the perfect mattress to buying the bedding that will make us want to sleep in—the quest for the dreamiest of snoozes is neverending. Today, there's a new player on the team: Morrow, a new premium soft goods company is launching its new line of linen bedding and Alpaca throws.

Two married couples decided to launch the bedding brand over dinner one night—their similar home décor tastes and quest for quality serving as the communal thread between each founding member. We chatted with the owners—James Toney III, Scott Cleary, Stephanie Cleary, and Michelle Paul Toney about making the perfect bed. Their top three rules? See below.

1. It all starts with you: "We believe in considering who you are as a sleeper and a person first," says Scott Cleary. "Do you run warm and sweat at night? Do you run cold and need extra warmth at night? Do you have pets that share your bed too? Are you someone who makes the bed meticulously? Or prefer your space to look a little more 'lived in'? Choosing your fabrics, colors, and duvet weights based on these things is a great way to create comfort and happiness."

 2. Nature knows best: "We’re big fans of using natural fibers on your bed to give you the greatest chance of the all-important combination of softness, breathability, and warmth," says Cleary. "This allegiance to natural fibers can extend to duvet inserts, pillow inserts, and accessories."

 3. Have fun: "Switch it up," he says. "Try new accent pillowcases, throw blankets, or throw pillows as the seasons change. We think investing in quality linens that you build around is a great way to get a bed you will always love looking at and look forward to climbing into!"

Other than working on expanding their bedding line to include hand-woven blankets and raw cotton offerings, the team is passionate about educating sleep lovers on the beauty of quality vintage linen. Shop their first collection, and find out what makes their products of the highest quality. Now that's sleep we can all look forward to.
