Bella Notte has just revealed it’s new additions for Fall 2018 (we don’t even have pricing for everything just yet). Three highlights for you…

Rosalina

rosalina in neutral

A gradation of watercolor hues are the dreamy backdrop to a secret garden presented atop glowing charmeuse. Three colorways – “Warm,” “Cool” and “Neutral” make for easy color coordination without sacrificing Rosalina’s distinct look and feel. Shams are pictured above in Neutral.

Cenote

The newest addition to Bella Notte’s colorbook – Cenote is a rich aquatic blue. As seen above, its depth stuns in velvet.

Helane Duvet Cover

A long anticipated replacement for Bella Notte’s original Satin Velvet Duvet Cover, the new Helane duvet cover is simple, elegant, and it fills a clear void in Bella Notte’s line. Velvet on top reverses to a luminous lyocell sateen (Madera Luxe).

New Abyss & Habidecor is here…

After discontinuing 13 Super Pile colors, 21 rug styles, 6 towel styles and 3 robe styles (many of the disconitnued items remain available for purchase for a limited time), Abyss & Habidecor is introducing 13 new colors, 18 new rug styles, 10 new towel collections, and one new robe. We recently had the pleasure of sampling Abyss’ new collections up close and in person. Below are several of the new additions to the line.

Abyss Super Twill

pictured: Super Twill Abyss’ mid-weight Twill towel has long been a popular towel. Extra long staple cotton is woven in three directions, providing less lint, a drier towel, and lighter-weight durability. Enter Super Twill – the texture has been exaggerated and the towel more plush. It weighs 20% more than the standard Twill towel (but still 15% less than Abyss’ flagship Super Pile towel).

The collection is officially available in nine colors, but can be purchased in any standard Abyss color for a 15% upcharge.

 

cloe, marbre, joia

pictured: Cloé rug, Marbre towel, Joia towel Simple, stylish, and plush, Habidecor’s new Cloé rug weighs 10% more (per meter squared) than the flagship Must rug. It is made of 90% long staple Egyptian Cotton, 5% Acryl, and 5% Lurex. Pictured with it is: Abyss’ new Marbre towel – a soft, lightweight towel with a fashion print featuring 50% extra long staple Egyptian Cotton and 50% modal; and Abyss’ new Joia towel – a lightweight spa inspired towel with just a touch of sparkle, one side has a very smooth texture and the other a classic terry weave. All three collections come available in shades of gold and silver.

 

Element towel

pictured: Element towel Similar to Abyss’ Joia towel, Element is a spa inspired towel featuring a soft and smooth texture on one side, and a classic terry weave on the other. It has a simpler style, but is available in more colors.

 

Habidecor Cora, Abyss Abelha

pictured: Cora rug, Abelha towel Abyss’ new Ableha towel, pictured atop the new Habidecor Cora rug, is a soft middle-weight towel woven of extra long staple Egyptian cotton. The band at its end features a contrasted texture and can be used as a scrub.

 

Habidecor Sakura rug

pictured: Sakura rug (pictured atop Cora)

 

Abyss Gloria towel

pictured: Gloria towel Abyss’ new Gloria looks sort of like a rug or mat – but it’s actually a delicately woven towel. It weighs slightly less than Abyss’ Twill towel, and is also woven of extra long staple Egyptian Cotton. It coordinates great with Habidecor’s longstanding Brighton rug.

 

Habidecor Galli rug

pictured: Galli rug We liked this one so much, we bought inventory ahead of time.

 

Abyss Montana towel

pictured: Montana towel This middle-weight towel features extra long staple Egyptian Cotton woven to a velvety velour in a “v” shaped pattern.

 

Saxo hand towels

pictured: Saxo towel Simple, soft, cozy; the cool thing about Abyss’ new Saxo is that it is also available as a tub mat, shower curtain, hooded robe, hair wrap, slipper, and bag.

 

Granite towels

pictured: Granite towel This middleweight towel features extra long staple Egyptian Cotton and bright, yet subdued color along a band at its end.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show and ‘spring prep’ event – April 21st!

Join us for a Pillow Bar trunk show the weekend of April 21. We had so much fun in September, we had to do it again!

This time, we’ll be featuring Mother’s Day, graduation and bridal gift ideas – to be personalized with TLC in time for your occasion.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show 4/21 at The Linen Tree

 

Meet Merrimac Dillon.
Merrimac founded The Pillow Bar in 2008. While seeking to help her husband recover from debilitating back surgery, she couldn’t find a pillow worth its weight. So, she spent more than a year working with chiropractors and surgeons, seeking to create the perfect pillow.

The name ‘The Pillow Bar’ refers literally to a bar. Merrimac invented a patent-pending, mechanized bar that is used to efficiently fill pillows according to custom specs. Pillows are filled according to a customer’s unique size, shape, and sleep preferences.
Nobody does what The Pillow Bar does.
From boomerang shaped "side sleeper" pillows to ribbon wrapped travel pillows, The Pillow Bar offers something for everyone. Each pillow features fine Hungarian down (or down alternative) as well as an embedded lavender sachet. Every item – including sleepwear, towels, and more – comes standard with a custom embroidered message and/or monogram.

side-sleeper pillow

 

Merrimac will be at our store all day on Saturday, April 21st, possibly the 22nd as well. Meet with Merrimac and get custom-fitted for your own Pillow Bar pillow, in person. To ensure one on one time with her, we are currently taking appointments.

Spring into Sferra

2018
02.22
2018
02.22

Sferra has unveiled several new collections for Spring ’18 that are now available for order. Here are some notable additions that we feel fill a void:

Giamina

A technique called fil coupé – popular amongst the finest of clothiers – gives this lightweight yarn-dyed cotton jacquard a texture that looks as delicate as embroidery. Ethereal duvet covers and shams are available in your choice of muted, nature-inspired neutrals; choose from Sky and Stone. Sky is pictured.

 

Intreccio

Intreccio results from Sferra’s partnership with Italy born design icon Alessandra Branca. A twist on a classic basket weave pattern and Alessandra’s trademark Branca stripe adds a special touch to what would otherwise be a more conventional bedding style. The fabric is a crisp cotton percale and the collection includes a duvet cover, flat sheet, dec pillow, pillowcases and pillow shams.

 

Somina

Embellished arabesque scrollwork recalls the rhythmic tendril first seen in Renaissance art. Somina features an opulent high thread count Egyptian Cotton sateen jacquard, boasting a remarkable feel and an almost mirror-like sheen. Similar in style to SDH’s popular Legna Seville, it makes a good choice for our customers who have grown to love SDH Legna Seville but would prefer a more durable cotton sheet.

 

Chianni

Sferra’s Chianni pillow was first introduced in 2017 as a white on navy maritime inspired pillow. Now, three new lighter color choices give Chianni a new look.

Contrary to appearance, Chianni’s four stripe pattern draws its inspiration not so much from Pratesi’s classic 3-line embroidery, but from a maritime signal flag. The pillow adds a smart-looking accent to keep any bed looking slightly shipshape.

 

Sitta

Nope, it’s not another throw. It’s a scarf! A real scarf, not a bed scarf. Bold color blocking in contrasting halves give casual wit and visual weight to this gossamer scarf, an ultra-light weave of cotton, linen, wool and silk.
