Default Continental quilts

Hello everyone!

We've just moved to Florida and we're trying to find continental quilts for our new beds. Can anybody give us some advice? It seems we are talking another language!!!

In USA Duvets are generally known as Conforters. They are mostly fibre Fill & often with fancy printed covers. In Fl, due to hotter weather, you may find it more difficult to buy higer TOGs. They also will have no idea what TOG is. They will sell, by downfill 400/450 the low end 700/750 the high end $100 to $1200+. 700/750 fill would probably be way to hot for your area.
In NYC we can buy down comforters @ Macy's or Bloomingdales. Bloomingdales in FL is Burdines I think. Also Bed Bath & behond. In Miami, ABC furniture of NYC.


I have personally bought from the company below: excellent products, but not cheap. By catologue or online.

You can also buy from: Part of Lands End, their furnishings Co.
