Before there were big-box home furnishing chains, value-minded Upper West Siders turned to Laytner’s for their linen and bedding needs. In addition to the affordable organic 300-thread count sheet sets ($40), cotton bamboo towels ($17) and down alternative comforters ($80–$120) the family-owned houseware emporium is known for, the flagship location hawks handsome wood furniture, cozy microfleece bathrobes and a colorful array of shower curtains in both lightweight silk and heavy-duty plastic. Decorative items such as teak wood coasters, dog-bone-shaped picture frames and ceramic sushi sets do well as housewarming gifts or as finishing touches in your own apartment.
