More About Round Top
We always hold exciting events during Round Top, including Daily Sleep Seminars during which we help those who attend understand the power of sleep. They generally take place from noon until 4 p.m. each day, and if you’ve never experienced the true potency of the pillows and other down products in our European Sleep System, you must stop by and see what all the fuss is about.
The amount of effort it takes for us to stage our presence at the Round Top Antiques Fair venue every spring and fall is Herculean. The custom-built tent me call home while we’re there is a 2,100-square-foot pavilion with flooring and air conditioning that constitutes our Round Top road show. Within this environment that travels with us, we construct four bedrooms and a variety of areas where visitors can try our handmade lavender products; touch antique linens, fine laces, and museum-quality textiles; and learn about our primitive linen collections from the 17th- to 19th-centuries.
One of the highlights of our Pandora de Balthazár Experience at Round Top is our “Dream Bedroom,” which is set up to illustrate how layered luxury bedding, decorative pillows, custom monogramming and heirloom linens can be combined to create atmospheres infused with beauty and wellness. Across the way, my “Adult Dream Room” features works-in-progress and finished projects that range in composition from Austro-Hungarian Empire textiles to hand-loomed bespoke bedding.
There is an important educational aspect to what we do when we’re at the fair, and this goes beyond having visitors climb into our beds so that they can learn about the healing aspects of our products. We share with everyone who is interested how our linens are created—and, surprising to so many, the fact that a large number of our antiques are washable, sustainable, environmentally friendly and all natural, which proves couture bedding doesn’t have to be out-of-reach for the busiest career person.
