Sandra Laughlin

Sandra Laughlin

When Laughlin Designs founder, Sandra Laughlin, moved from California to the family farm in Kentucky in pursuit of a simpler life, she decided to take her business with her. "Letting go of my showroom and going virtual actually improved my connection to the international design community and allowed me to have a world-wide clientele. Actually, I feel more cosmopolitan doing business on the farm than I did in the California Bay Area." Sandra has over 25 years of experience in professionally decorating with the highest quality fine imported linens.

Sandra and her husband, Bill, live in a home they built from recycled 200-year old hand-hewn logs. While she tends to her customers online and on the phone, Bill tends to the free-range chickens, cattle and honeybees. Additionally, Sandra enjoys spending time with her family, entertaining, photography, the great outdoors, and operating their bed and breakfast, FireFly Farm. Bill is a nationally recognized authority on lingual orthodontics.

Testimonials

You seemed trustworthy and knowledgeable, you have been around for a while. I felt confident purchasing something even though I have never seen it anywhere in real life.

Sandra has institutional knowledge that she offers to online customers for free - a rarity in this world! As the daughter of a retired interior designer, I value the voice of experience in helping make decisions and Sandra offered input and advice without me ever even spending a cent. Because of her guidance, I made a thoughtful and well thought-out decision for my bedroom linens.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Sandra's individualized help and industry knowledge. She was so helpful! I felt like I mattered and her expertise was invaluable!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Just wanted to say thank you so much for your personal service. It's not often in the retail world that you find individual attention, especially in e-commerce when there is no face or voice attached to an order.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Thanks so much! I will send it back as soon as I get some other bedding to match the fabric. I am pairing natural colored burlap curtains and bed skirt with this...do you think that will work well with the fabric/style of the duvet cover? I must say, I have never had such wonderful customer service with an online purchase! You're great!!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
This pattern is exactly what I have been searching for. My husband and I are excited to finally have the bed of our dreams!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet

I am a returning customer...I like your product line and your excellent service.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Again Sandra, thank you so much! I will definitely be recommending you on the mattress forum I frequent. That's were I first read about the Dormeir from a Canadian poster. Not too many businesses these days take the time to really help. I think it's wonderful that you do.

We've had the Hydrangea and Sateen sheets for almost nine years, and we can't live without them! The sateen sheet and pillow case fabric is so soft and worn that it's finally tearing, hence the order. My husband won't let me put any other sheets on the bed--seriously. He's not a picky guy about anything else.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Hi Sandra, thanks for going that extra mile for me. You are the best. Thanks so much. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet

Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Dear Sandra, I want to take the time to thank you for all the effort you put into chasing down any remaining Rhapsodie en Bleu Fabric. The pillows are exquisite and the fabric remnants are great. Thank you so much for passing on the savings to me. I appreciate your kindness and will certainly recommend you to my friends. Have a wonderful holiday!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet

The Isabella bedding set arrived Friday afternoon and it is breathtaking! I don't think anyone else could make a nicer duvet cover or sham than Jane Wilner - her sewing is exquisite. I love the zippered closures in the duvet covers - so easy and it's not even visible. Again, we are so pleased, and our bedrooms are so beautiful, thanks to you!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Sandra, The bedding is GORGEOUS and we are so happy with the way it fits on the bed. Also, we were very impressed with the way the items were packaged and how everything is made so perfectly - it's just exquisite. I was so worried about the fabric due to my experience with Horchow - we certainly made the right decision to order it through your company. I can't thank you enough!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
I had company over the weekend and they just raved about the sheets on the guest bed! I gave them your card and I think you will be hearing from them.

Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Sandra, I've been meaning to contact you. The bedding is marvelous! I couldn't be more pleased. The fabric is luscious and the sewing is excellent. The bed turned out terrific, far better than what Neiman Marcus would have made possible.
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet
Sandra, I am one happy customer. I received my order over the weekend and everything is absolutely beautiful. I will be referring my friends to you--thanks again!
Fine Luxury Linens Footer Bullet

Well, last night, for the first time since last spring, we snuggled down in our wonderful, cozy comforter, and sent you messages of contentment and gratitude! "O bed, O bed, O delicious bed! What heaven on earth to the weary head." Nothing could be truer. Thank you again for making it possible to buy the comforter!

Dear Sandra, Just wanted to let you know that our anniversary was a success! Keep telling customers that the men stop complaining about the price once they actually sleep on the sheets! My husband even wants to go to bed early since we have started using the new 1020 thread count sheets! Thank you very much for helping to get us out sheets by our anniversary. I hope to purchase more items from your site in the future! Please feel free to email sales and advertisements or to mail them. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
