A rite of passage for many a stylish New Yorker who loves design is to wait in line for sale bedding at D. Porthault’s twice yearly sale. Seeking beauty for the bed, bath and table, design denizens, hostesses and entertaining experts flock to Park Avenue to wait in line, rain or shine. For the uninitiated, D. Porthault is an old-world bedding company started in the 1920’s in Paris that makes printed linens that bring you (me) joy. Favored by Jackie O and the old guard soignee set, their signature colorful floral printed linens are collected over years (the older the better), and get better with time. Their flowery prints come in a wide array of colors, mostly in pinks and blues, but expect a bright pairing or two that will perk up an all white bed or a white tiled bath. I have a soft spot for the boudoir pillows and Euro shams, and just love how they make a bed feel cozy and crisp. One can never have too much of this good thing. Not in New York? You can shop online here.
