In New York there is always a fight to be the best: Daniel vs Le Bernardin, Mets vs Yankees, Eli's vs Fairway, The Post vs The News... you get the idea. When it comes to luxury bedding, the fight isn't any less aggressive with Sferra vs Frette.
Some experts say that sheets above a 350-thread-count removes the "breathaility" of the cotton, while others insist that sheets of 1000+ thread count are the only way to go. We are going to keep our opinions to ourselves for this arguement but the gloves come off when it comes to comparing sales.
Sferra is hosting a sample sale at the Chelsea Market where prices are 50% to 80% off. We hear the inventory is great but the crowd is a killer--especially in this heat. Over at Frette.com you can find similar discounts (no crowds) but the selection on popular items like towels and blankets are very slim.
Sferra fans head to Chelsea Market and Frette fans keep an eye on the website because there are some amazing deals and the inventory is always changing.
