Beyond your average, solid, monogrammed towel, sophisticated beach towels are hard to come by, particularly if you'd like a patterned one. So take note: the Pottery Barn Lauria Beach Towel ($29, reduced from $39) is on sale and completely chic. Its artfully rendered botanical graphic is inspired by the vintage watercolor books that decoupage artist John Derian makes a living on. The towel has a thick cotton velour top, and is backed with cotton terry, making it the ideal thing to dry you off after a dip this Summer. And, you can also have it monogrammed to add a personal touch to your pool décor.
