File Date

Hagens Berman has filed an active class-action lawsuit representing purchasers of sheets at Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn seeking compensation. The affected sheets listed below have lower thread count than stated, meaning consumers were misled and overcharged for an inferior product. Experts have tested the affected sheets and verified they have a lower thread count than stated. You may have consumer rights to your money back »


According to consumers’ lawsuit against Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma overstated the thread count on nine sets of its bedsheets, including its name-brand varieties and those sold under its brand, Pottery Barn. Williams-Sonoma’s mislabeling created the false impression that the sheets were of a particular thread count, and worth a higher price. Consumers were misled by these companies into buying a product that was not what they paid for and are entitled to money back under consumer protection laws. Simply put, consumers paid high prices for inferior sheets, while Williams-Sonoma fabricated thread counts.
