Deepest, darkest winter is here, that time of year when beds become more than just things you sleep in—they're lines of defense against drafty apartments, and, on occasion, impenetrable fortresses of throw pillows, Netflix, and snacks. Which is why, when the temperature dips below 40, it's prime time to arm your bed with the coziest, fluffiest, (and, most importantly, prettiest) bedding possible. Whether it's high thread count sheets or Moroccan wedding blankets you're after, we've rounded up New York City's best spots for giving your bed a winter makeover.

Laytner’s has been around for almost 50 years, so it must be doing something right. The family-owned-and-operated store sells everything from goose-down comforters to bed skirts and mattress pads to really up your bed’s coziness. [Photo]

2. Frette

799 Madison Ave
New York, NY
Frette’s Italian-made sheets—which range from sateen to poplin—are pricey, but made to last forever. Patterns aren’t really their thing, but muted shades, crisp piping, and luxe finishes are. Fun fact: this is the same label that outfitted the beds on the Titanic. [Photo]

3. John Robshaw Textiles Showroom

Be warned: Marimekko's bedding is not for minimalists. When buying sheet sets and duvet covers from the Helsinki-based company's Fifth Avenue flagship, expect oversized prints in bold colors that immediately cheer up any white-walled rental apartment. [Photo]

5. West Elm

West Elm is a go-to for unisex bedding that isn’t boring. Head to the 20,000 square foot Chelsea outpost to stock up on striped pillowcases and Belgian linen duvet covers. And keep an eye out for their limited edition designer collabs—their latest, with Kate Spade Saturday, is full of bedding options in minimalist, geometric patterns. [Photo]

6. Anthropologie

85 5th Ave
New York, NY 10003

(212) 488-2803

Clean, crisp, and colorful: Three words that apply to nearly everything Jonathan Adler touches, but maybe nowhere more so than in his bedding selection. Stop into the Greenwich Avenue shop for the reasonably priced sheets, and leave with lots of throw pillows that accentuate their colors. [Photo]

8. Dwell Studio

NY, NY 10012

Steven Alan’s Franklin Street home shop specializes in bedding versions of the designer’s signature shirts.

You could go to Upstate New York for your hand-dyed sheets, the Pacific Northwest for your woolen throw blankets, and Morocco for your embroidered pillows, or you could just let People of 2Morrow’s owners put together a perfect bedding mix for you. This spring, the Greenpoint shop is also bringing back its popular in-house pillow line, made from Afghan fabrics and recycled denim. [Photo: Driely S.]

We thought wait lists were reserved for ‘It’ bags…until Joinery came to town. The Williamsburg home goods shop’s Brazilian-made blankets are so popular that new shipments typically sell out within hours. Your best bet? Follow the store on every social media channel possible, then book it to South 1st Street as soon as they announce a new batch. [Photo]
