Ultimate Bedding Buyer’s Guide for 2019
We've seen it all, and now we're ready to recommend the cream of the crop. These bedding products will make you swoon.
Reminiscent of the soft hues and laid back vibes of Southern California’s beaches, Parachute Home’s bedding collections — designed in Venice Beach — truly exude minimalist serenity. Colors like “bone,” “fog” and “blush” make for soothing layers of luxurious bedding. The bedding is available in percale, sateen and linen. We love the linen.
While linen gets a reputation for being rough and textured, don’t let the out-of-the-box feel deter you. After just a couple washes, the bedding softens right up. Parachute’s linen is crisp yet broken in. Ideal for those who like a casual look with the feel of luxury, this linen is made from 100-percent European flax, and promises to provide you both comfort and durability.
Like being wrapped in soft air, the linen Venice set provides breathable comfort that keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Parachute Home ditches the top sheet, so sets come simply with the fitted sheet and a duvet cover, although you can buy individual top sheets, if that’s your jam.
Eco-conscious sleepers will love that the materials are free of synthetics and chemicals, while the down comforters come from humanely treated ducks.
Casper is known for its mattresses, having pioneered the small package design thanks to a latex memory foam that allows the bed to fold up into a box the size of a bag of golf clubs, that you can have shipped to you and slip through your door with ease. Now, they’ve moved onto bedding, and we’re so on board.
The sheet sets come in three fabrications: Supima, linen and airy cotton. Casper has honed in on soft, washed-out colors for a simple, dreamy look. The 100-percent premium Supima (shown here) is the perfect balance of soft, crisp and airy.
The linen bedding comes pre-washed for broken-in softness, which is a game-changer for those who don’t want to hold out for the cozy feel. We especially love Casper’s grippy elastic, securing ties and blue labels to help you make the bed with ease and efficiency.
Casper’s 100-percent cotton shell duvet insert is a cloud of coziness we highly recommend. It’s made with ethically-sourced down fill, and is constructed with sewn-in chambers to keep the down in place. Here are the best ways to freshen linens, without chemicals.
Crane & Canopy
Having gotten its start simply selling duvets covers, Crane & Canopy now offers a full collection of luxury bedding and bath linens. The pre-washed 100-percent Belgian flax linen sheets are something to talk about. For those who wake up sweating in the middle of the night, say goodbye to damp sheets once and for all! The breathability of these sheets is topnotch.
We love the timeless 2-inch hemstitched border, which adds an elegant touch. The unique textures of the sheets are unlike any other. Choose from soft white or gray. There’s even an option to personalize your bedding with a monogram.
And for those that would like more variety, Crane & Canopy is one of the few online retailers that offers sheets and duvets in different colors and designs. You can choose from solids like porcelain green and plum purple, as well as colorful embroidered finishes. Are you interested in building your own DIY platform bed frame?

There’s a lot to love about Coyuchi. The company is all about integrity, so if you actually like the spongy softness of wool and the luster and crispness of linen, you’ll fall in love with Coyuchi’s products. For those that find comfort in a fluffy down comforter, look no further than Coyuchi. Made from certified organic, down-proof cotton, the three-season duvet insert is our favorite. It’s made with pure down from an Indiana duck farm, and the box stitching ensures the fill is evenly distributed, so you can securely curl up beneath dreamy fluff for the coziest sleep ever.
If you’re feeling the linen as much as we are, wrap your duvet something sleek like the organic linen chambray duvet cover in charcoal stripe, which comes with an 8-inch interior flap, coconut shell buttons and inside ties. Matching sheets round out a stylish, soft and luxurious bed that’s bound to get more supple with age. Jersey, flannel, sateen, percale and cotton are also solid choices for the sheets and duvet cover, and come in everything from a simple white to laid back prints like watercolor printed blocks.
And, we can’t forget the heavenly alpaca throw! Curl up on top of your luxurious Coyuchi bed with the irresistibly warm and soft alpaca throw. The fiber is sourced from small, sustainable ranches in the mountains of Peru and it’s left it undyed to showcase its natural beauty. Check out these easy updates that will make your home look more expensive.
If you like luxury, but hate the price tag, you’ll love Allswell. The company prides itself on keeping costs low and integrity high — using the most luxe materials for a restful night’s sleep. This is the brand to get all your essentials from without breaking the bank.
For temperature regulation, we love the all-season duvet insert crafted with Hygro Cotton hollow-core yarn that keeps you feeling cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Allswell offers just one type of sheet fabric, percale, which is ideal for those who like that crisp, cool-to-the-touch feel. Sheet sets include one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and pillowcases.
Be sure to prop yourself up while reading a book in bed with the brand’s luxurious medium-firm support Euro shams inserts. Dress them up in linen double-hemmed sham covers that marry a sophisticated and laid back look, thanks to the details of a double flange and piping, along with soft, breathable linen.
Wamsutta Dream Zone
There’s nothing new about Wamsutta, and that’s what the brand prides itself on. Dating back to 1846, the brand compares itself to a fine wine. Wamsutta, and its products, only get better with age. We, and a whole lot of other people, tend to agree.
Available exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond, Wamsutta’s bedding is nothing short of luxurious, like the sumptuous velvet duvet cover. It’s made of a cotton-viscose blend that provides a soft feel and beautiful sheen. We especially love the velvet piping.
The Wamsutta Damask Stripe 500-Thread-Count PimaCott Sheet Set is another stand out item. The pure American PimaCott fabric holds color better for longer, while the extra-long, dense fibers ensure silky smoothness. You’ll feel like royalty between the sheets.
This Los Angeles-based company prides itself on putting quality over quantity — sewing slower with more stitches per inch, and hand inspecting every single sheet produced. We’re in love with the Washed Sateen Sheet Set.
It’s a classic four-over-one sateen weave using a mid-weight 60s single cotton yarn in both the warp and weft. The 300 thread count fabric provides a delightful combination of silkiness, durability and breathability, so you can expect to sleep soundly between these sheets for years to come.
We also love the Washed Sateen Duvet Cover, with its 3-inch flange border and a hidden zipper closure that makes putting your duvet set together that much easier. Use these decorating and lifestyle ideas for your bedroom to create a retreat that’s truly a relaxing place to wind down and end your day.
Pom Pom at Home
Another Los Angeles-based company, Pom Pom at Home offers a silky-smooth 100-percent bamboo sheet set that drapes like a dream. It’s naturally breathable and hypoallergenic, and has a luxe sheen.
Also swoon-worthy is the Annabelle collection, which delivers a romantic and luxurious touch to any bed. We especially love the elegance of the Annabelle flat sheet, which features a dainty lace edge.
The selection of body pillows the brand provides is also noteworthy, like The Poppy, which features delicate colored pom poms in rows making it a perfectly pretty addition to any bed, and the Newport body pillow made of soft, heavy knit linen that’s hand-loomed. Check out these 20 bunk bed designs and get inspired to build your own DIY bed.
There’s truly nothing more romantic than the bedding collections at Bella Notte. We’re majorly crushing on the Linen Whisper Bedspread in the pale pink hue called “pearl.” Its ruffled edges and drapey overlay make for the ultimate casual elegance. The bedspread features a linen body and a 32-inch gathered linen skirt. The sheer linen gauze skirt is lined with the brand’s signature linen to make for a fuller silhouette and coverage, while a petite ruffle trims the top edge.
The sheet choices from Bella Notte are simple yet topnotch, like the Madera Luxe sheets made of 100-percent Tencel, a sustainably grown fiber. The luminous finish comes second to the dreamy softness.
If you really want utter elegance, look no further than the Rosalina Bedding Collection. Featuring a comforter, lumbar throw pillow, shams and square throw pillows in a floral print made of 65-percent silk and 35-percent linen. Now that’s extravagance!
Loomstead offers a no-frills concept with quality bedding at the forefront. We love the clean look and soft feel of the brand’s classic sheet set. The percale sheets, woven from Egyptian cotton, provide a crispness that feels clean to the touch, while also being light, breathable and simply chic. The set includes a fitted sheet, a pair of pillowcases and the option to add a matching flat sheet.
We also love the oversized duvet insert that provides a lofty feel, and ensures no inch of your duvet cover is left un-fluffed. It’s made of 85-percent down, 15-percent down and feather fiber and crafted with double needle stitching with cotton piping.
Loomstead’s clean and cozy throws are lovely as well. We like the stonewashed, 100-percent linen Waffle Throw that adds a dash of texture to create the perfect finishing touch for your bed. If you’re all about coziness, be sure to check out these ways to add hygge to your home.
