In the past I have just gone to Homegoods and bought whatever 400
thread count sheets looked good along with a basic bed spread to cover
the whole bed. Now I am looking for the better stuff..

Where might I shop to get the "best deals" on trendy higher end bedding?
Something closer to what you get at a Four Seasons hotel. How much should I
expect to pay for king sheet sets and how do I tell if its more like the "Four Seasons"
level of quality? I can't tell what I am looking at when everything is
wrapped up tight in plastic. Plus I am a guy so all I understand is what
it feels like after I sleep on it.

How much should I expect to pay for a really crisp high-end bedspread with
all those fake pillows and stuff that dress up the top? What am I looking for
to determine quality?

After shopping for for mattresses and settling on Macy's, I figure Macy's
might be my first stop but there are so many places to look. Macy's,
Lord&Taylor, Steinmart, etc. Is there a top 4 list of stores I might narrow
my search to find trendy but high-end quality bedding? I know enough
not to go to Marshals, Ross, or Khols but that's about it.. I want to buy
local so I can see what I am buying in person.

Any Martha Stewarts out there?

Post in the Shopping Thread to get ideas (BTW, I HATE the Martha Stewart sheets I bought, seams coming apart after a few washes)

Frontgate . . . it's a catalog company with very luxerious items including bedding/towels.

Bloomingdale's is where I would check for high-end linens in a department store. Old Town Fairfax used to have a french-named linens shop (although the name is escaping me at the moment). It was about a half a block east of University and Main. It was very high-end goods.

Once you have determined the brands you want, then you can start looking for them at a discount online.

Oh, and before you go buying all those little pillows, make sure you've got a place for them to go every night. They can really be a pain to deal with otherwise.

Oh, thought of two more places -- Yves Delorme in McLean (in center with Balduccis) and Emissary (in Mazza Gallerie-Wisconsin and Western Ave, DC)

Neiman Marcus has high end bedding products in their home department called Horchow. You can visit Horchow.com. Many of the luxurious bedspreads cost more than 1k.

Don't discount Homegoods and Marshalls. They carry all sorts of brands, some very highend, I make it a point to check their sheets often. I like good linens, but don't want to pay $$$.

And I also have had more comments from guests (I have lots of people stay over) on my sheets in the guest room. Got them at Target. So I bought a set for my bed. Love them. They are the most expensive set at target, (can't remember name) but are not one of the designer sets. Like them more than the 800 thread count I got at bloomies. I also have bought Frette which is some of the best linens out there. I think I like the target ones better.

One of the reasons I like Garnet Hill is that they still carry high-quality medium thread-count percale. I'm tired of all the uber-high thread count sateen sheets that turn sort of warm and fuzzy after a wash or two. There's always flannel for that, IMO.
