French Toile is the quintessential bed linen design for a classic French inspired bedroom. The French word ‘toile’ actually derives from ‘Toile de Jouy’ and translates as ‘story’ or ‘tale’, so a toile design is intended to be a series of drawings that depict a romantic, and often rural or pastoral based tale.
In this toile design men and woman dance amongst the trees whilst being serenaded by a man playing a French clarinet as angels fly above. It’s a glorious tale of love and was the perfect antidote to the troublesome times of the mid eighteenth-century revolution.
The soft charcoal grey hues give this toile bed linen a slightly more modern feel, whilst the small scale ditsy reverse brings a feminine feel. The grey cotton piping trim finishes it with a smart and sophisticated edge.
Each set comprises a duvet cover and two classic pillowcases (the single set has just one pillowcase) with extra single pillowcases available.
Made from a soft but crisp 200 thread count 100% pure cotton.
Machine wash at 40 degrees.
Matching Toile French Grey Cotton Quilted Bedspread available.
All of our French style luxury bed linen is made to fit UK size beds, duvets and pillows.
"Luxurious and romantic duvet covers Toile French Grey. Very beautiful pattern and grey colour. Fell in love with it as soon as I saw it on Twitter. Very efficient service, from enquiring by email to arrival! Delivery was excellent. Faster than I had expected to receive. Friendly and helpful staff ‘The Girls’ to communicate with. Beautifully Packaged. Wrapped with a lovely grey ribbon with the scent of flowers! I liked it." Clematis via Trustpilot
"I had been searching for a Toile de Jouey bedset for our house in France for some time, and couldn't find one I liked either in France or the UK. Then I found this company online, and I am so pleased with the product. It arrived very quickly, and is excellent quality - soft, high-quality cotton and very well finished, with meticulous attention to detail. It also washes beautifully. Would highly recommend this product." Jackie via Trustpilot

”Having just re-modelled and furnished my dream bedroom l was looking for new bedding and came across The French Bedroom Company. The bedding looked so fresh and clean I ordered the Toile de Jouy duvet cover etc. In grey. It arrived in no time. Very well packed in its own zipped case it was like opening a present, one that puts a smile on your face. The quality is superb so not only a dream to iron its a dream waiting to get into at night. What a lovely shopping experience with a romantic end, only to be expected I suppose with all things French :-) So Girls Thanx." Sue, via Trustpilot
