Brooklinen — maker of some of our editors’ favorite linen sheets — turns seven years old this May. And as we noted last week during our Two-Day Sale, the brand is celebrating by marking just about everything on its website down by 20 percent through May 5. Since the weather’s finally getting warmer, now’s a good time to stock up on its airy linen bedding, a plush robe if you’re not quite ready to venture into the great outdoors, or perhaps some towels and comforters for a spring refresh. Below, some of our tried-and-true favorites, all of which are on sale with the code BDAY (which is automatically applied at checkout). One note: We’ve featured prices for queen-size bedding, to make comparison shopping a bit easier, but other sizes are available.
The linen sheets that won over former Strategist writer Lauren Levy, despite her initial skepticism. “The Belgian flax here is stonewashed for an immediately worn-in feel that only gets softer over time and with each wash. It’s so cozy, so soft, that you’re more likely to find little puffs of rogue linen stuck on your hair or in your beard than feel coarse strands poking you in the night.”
Another linen hit we’d recommend if you’ve been searching for a cooling duvet cover.
If you’re in the market for both, the linen bundle includes the core sheet set and the duvet cover, plus two extra pillowcases, for 25 percent less than you’d pay buying it all separately.
These luxe sateen sheets are all-time Brooklinen best-sellers for a reason. Former Strategist writer David Notis described them as “really soft” without “the shiny look other sateen sheets sometimes get.”
A duvet cover that interior designers love, which we’ve recommended before for a “crisp look and feel.”
Or get the luxe cotton sheets and classic duvet together for 25 percent less.
A lightweight down-alternative comforter if you want the comfort of down without overheating.
We own one of these elegantly stitched quilts (which have a tendency sell out on the site) and can vouch that they are the ideal summer to winter mid-weight blanket, in a goes-with-everything white.
If you’re in the market for both a new quilt and new shams, now is a good time to spring for the set.
An extra-soft blanket in a soft, neutral gray.
And a fringed wool option at a slightly lower price point (corgi not included).
We included Brooklinen’s loungewear in Don’t Dillydally when it was first released, and still think the pieces would make appropriately comfy “sloungewear” to wear around your apartment and to the bodega.
A lightweight, in-season pair of French terry joggers to add to the WFH rotation. Heads up: Only size XS is left.
Or try the “supersoft” Bed-Stuy pant that freelance writer and Strategist contributor Taylor Trudon says she’s been “living in” during WFH. They’re still available in XL and XXL sizes.
And a sweatshirt to go with them.
We think this robe has a spa-level plushness to it, even if your lounging is still mostly confined to your apartment.
The super-plush bath towels that writer Lori Keong raved about after receiving them as a housewarming gift. “They’re exactly what I would want if I didn’t already own them,” she said. “They’re so soft and luxurious, and big enough to swaddle yourself in.”
Or get a full set of them with hand towels and a bath mat — if you’re overhauling everything.
An abstract curtain set to zhuzh up the bathroom, complete with a biodegradable liner and 12 hooks.
