News & Notes: Bedside Manor Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Bedside Manor, a destination for luxury linens and bedding, bath and home accessories, is celebrating its 20th anniversary Oct. 16-18 at the Specialty Shops On The Park. Laura Fitch’s love of sumptuous Yves Delorme textiles was the catalyst for the creation of a luxury retail powerhouse that has achieved the delicate balance of gracefully maintaining Southern traditions while embracing modern trends.
The public festivities begin on Oct. 17 with 20 percent off any single item and door prize giveaways. To honor the retail milestone, Bedside Manor has commissioned an anniversary candle that captures the delicious, clean signature scent of the store with hints of powder and light floral notes. Delectable!
“My husband and I had moved from Washington, DC to Charlotte, bought our first house and I couldn’t find a local source for the things I wanted,” Fitch said. “I took the idea of something I loved and matched it with a need and here we are 20 years later.”
Fitch and her team designed Bedside Manor to be a luxurious, approachable retail destination that is the embodiment of quality over quantity. Bedside Manor features fine textiles, bedding and gifts as well as personal and home accessories in a range of price points. Charlotteans may also take advantage of their complimentary in-home design consultations, aptly named “Room Service.”
In the future, Bedside Manor plans to expand to other locations, create a private line of sheets and down products, unveil a newly redesigned website including online bridal registry, and of course, more of the high quality tradition shoppers have grown to love.
