Where do you buy bath towels, etc in NYC

Macy's is boring

ABC is too expensive...

Gracious Home is too matronly

Buy them online. You can find luxury towels at great prices at sites like gilt.com and hautelook.com.

Century 21!

I steal mine from the Everard.

by World War With A Zreply 306/21/2013

Thanks

Bed Bath and Beyond or Bloomingdales. I like to feel towels before I buy them, so I don't buy online.

by World War With A Zreply 506/21/2013

I used to get towels, and everything for the home, at the now-closed Conrans. Selections were limited but everything was great and modern. Pricy, but not as expensive as ABC. It's ridiculous that in a place like NYC there are no fabulously stylish modern home stores

I only buy the French brand D. Porthault at 470 Park Avenue. 65-gram Egyptian cotton with double-rolled, hand-sewn scalloped edges. A steal at 400 dollars.

Agreed, R5. But Bloomingdale's gets awfully weird about taking them into the fitting rooms.

Restoration Hardware

TJ Maxx

Marshalls

Bed Bath Beyond

Linens n Things

Heaven forbid you buy your bath towels at a boring department store, Mary!

by World War With A Zreply 1006/21/2013

Here:

Pratesi 829 Madison Ave., at 69th St. 212-288-2315

Totally disagree with you about Macy's. You can great amazing deals on really nice towels and sheets.

by World War With A Zreply 1206/21/2013

Laytner's.

There is one on the upper east side, one on the upper west side, one in Forest Hills, Queens and one in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

by World War With A Zreply 1306/21/2013

Agree on Restoration Hardware, Century 21 or Loehmanns.I got beautiful Natori bath towels at Bed Bath as well, and a wonferful plush bathmat there as well.

by World War With A Zreply 1406/21/2013

It's towels. Not a car or a house, Mary.

by World War With A Zreply 1506/21/2013

Just bring a few home from the bathhouse next time you visit.

by World War With A Zreply 1606/21/2013

OMG!

I actually was at the tubs last night and the towels were really great. Must have been new or the fact that I tip everyone when I go in.

I know they are just towels but I like some style that is more than a Macy's plush pile solid color Britex crap.

I saw some great ones at ABC yesterday...but $100 for a bath towel is not my budget.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone

by World War With A Zreply 1706/23/2013

I air dry. It's cheaper and better for my skin

by World War With A Zreply 1806/23/2013

Ikea. Seriously. They're the only towels I've owned that don't shed after washing them, they have handy loops sewn in for hanging onto a hook, the design is simple and basic, they come (came) in multiple sizes and colors, and they were affordable (when compared to other brands).

by World War With A Zreply 1906/23/2013

L.L. Bean made me re-think buying towels online. Bought a set years ago and they're still luxurious, despite being the only towels I use daily. If they ever start deteriorating, I will go back again.

by World War With A Zreply 2006/23/2013

Damn, don't they have a Wal-Mart in NYC?

Target? Dollar General???????

by World War With A Zreply 2106/23/2013

Penneys. Good value for the $.

by World War With A Zreply 2206/23/2013

I tend to buy stuff at Macy's only because it's what my mother did and I lack the imagination to do any different. I hate shopping from crap like towels. I wish I were more of a housefrau because my house looks like shit.

by World War With A Zreply 2306/23/2013

Costco. Two to three star hotel quality. What more do you really need? Get a package of six. They're white. There are Costcos in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island.

by World War With A Zreply 2406/23/2013

I second Ikea. I really prefer a less plush towel and like the hanging loops on them. And the fact that they're like $5 each seals the deal.

by World War With A Zreply 2506/23/2013

If you never over-detergent your laundry and if your towels never see the inside of a dryer:

1) They will not get stiff when you air dry them,

2) They will last MUCH LONGER because the short lint fibers will not get knocked off in the tumble dryer,

and

3) They will smell great naturally, or especially if you add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil in the rinse water.

Even crummy towels seem nicer when they get this treatment.

by World War With A Zreply 2606/23/2013

I vote for Century 21 too. (At least the one near the WTC). The one at Lincoln Center seems more expensive.

by World War With A Zreply 2706/23/2013

Duane Reade.

I fell for the hype and bought some Abyss towels on sale at Bloomingdale's. Eh.
