French-based Yves Delorme may best be known for its towels and bedding—and distinctive swan-silhouette logo—but the company is expanding its repertoire, and the makeover shows at the US flagship store. The center of attention is still the plush towel and the silky pillowcase, but they’re orbited by a constellation of bed, bath, and home-accent products that fit comfortably into the Delorme universe. Boxes of fragrant Rance soaps and eau de parfum sprays make great gifts, but shoppers will probably want to save more luxurious items—like the silk lingerie and cashmere bathrobes—for themselves. They could browse all day, though, and never realize the beauty that lies beneath the sheets: rustic, Provence-inspired queen-size beds, as well as a range of consoles, tables, and chairs. It’s all for sale, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg; the Delorme catalog offers an astonishing range of furniture, most of which could pass for the Victorian set of an HBO docudrama, and all of which can be ordered from within the New York store and shipped to the city.
