For the Love of Bedding and Botany

My Dad’s Two Favorite Things


My sisters and I always joke that in another life my dad, (CEO and Creative Director for Laytner’s Linen & Home) would have been a botanist. I can’t count the number of times he dragged us to a greenhouse or a nursery to smell, touch and look at the different plants. I grew up understanding two things: quality bedding can enhance one’s life; and spending your free time around flowers and greenery helps keep energy on the up.

Floral bedding can sometimes get a bad rap. It’s been around for a while- to some, it might seem stodgy or stale.  But let me tell you, floral linens are coming back in a fierce way! It’s been joyful to witness my dad combine two of his passions, bedding and botany, and it’s been fun to refresh my own bedroom with some of our soft and durable floral linens.

Check out some of the inspiration for our floral bedding below, and if you love gardening or being outside connected to nature, some of these linens might be flowery fits for you ;)


Sprig Sheet and Duvet Sets


Our corporate office is actually located right near the Flower District in Manhattan, so during those stressful moments at work, many of my colleagues and I will pop out to literally smell the plants, herbs and flowers located right down the street. It helps us slow down and remember that there is more to life than some spreadsheet or upcoming promotion.

Personally, I always re-enter the office with a sense of clarity and renewed calm.

The sprigs on these sheet and duvet sets are inspired by rosemary, cilantro and parsley herbs. They are super soft and pair well with one of our cotton blankets or quilts to provide a little bit of nature to your bed environment.   



Toile Sheet and Duvet Sets PLUS Quilts

Our Toile Sheet Sets, Duvet Sets and Quilts are among some of my favorite pieces of bedding at Laytner’s. Our Toile de Jouy is designed from vintage French fabrics with floral clusters in a finely etched design that add sophistication to your bed - very Tres Chic.




Our Toile Quilt Sets are made with the elegant 'Plaza' stitch pattern.  The quilt and shams reverse to the complimenting 'Broken Bamboo Stripe' pattern - giving you two designs in one! There are two tie-closures on the back of the shams, making for a very stylish and bring a modern perspective on a classic design.


Daisy Sheet and Duvet Sets

These Daisy Sheet and Duvet Sets take a modern twist on a classic retro design. I have to admit, my favorite flowers has always been the daisy. It adds a sense of playfulness and simple joy to any bedroom.

There’s a quote I love from Lady Bird Johnson (President Lyndon Johnson’s wife):

“When flowers bloom, so does hope”

Add some optimism to your life with these daisy sheets – they are soft and gentle, and a great reminder of what’s important in life.


Our Selection of Floral Duvet Cover Sets

Our selection of floral duvet cover sets is so exciting. We have several designs of bedding with different flowers from all over the world.

From our Spring Blossom Duvet Cover Set that has flowers you might see in Central Park, to our Sakura Duvet Cover Set, which portray Japanese Cherry Blossoms.

This collection will keep your bed soft and cozy and make your bedroom feel like an enchanted garden!


Vintage Indian One of a Kind Kantha Throw


Our Vintage Kantha Throws are probably the most special pieces we carry at Laytner’s.  Each throw is quilted from reclaimed vintage one-of-a-kind Indian Sari shawl fabrics. Piecing 2 fabrics together with hundreds of hand stitches, each piece becomes a unique work of art. Our Kantha throws have many uses, such as blankets, curtains, tablecloths, furniture covers, bedspreads - almost anywhere that you want to add a custom handmade look. They are 100% Cotton and most of them have flowers on them, so they are great for bringing a little bit of outside, inside.
