Style. In this section, we'll talk about top of bed, sheets, and finishing touches, like decorative pillows, throws, and blankets.

The Top of Bed refers to the most visible style element: your bed covering. This element is often the statement piece that sets the aesthetic of the room and also plays a key role in your sleeping temperature preference.

It can be confusing to decide which type of bed covering is best for you and your space. Below we compare the three main types:


Comforters are available in a wide range of colors and patterns to suit any style or preference. If you’re on a budget, a comforter set with matching shams is a great choice.

When you think of a quilt, you may think of the traditional handcrafted patchwork blanket. Today, a quilt can also refer to a lightweight bed covering consisting of a cotton or cotton blend fabric with a thin inner filling called batting. A quilt alone is perfect for summer, or can add an extra layer of warmth in winter.

Quilts are more intricately stitched, with the colors and patterns usually dyed into the fabric, rather than the traditional method of fabric pieces sewn together.

Duvet Covers

Commonly referred to simply as a “duvet”, this option is a fabric envelope that encases a down or down alternative comforter or duvet insert and is enclosed by buttons, ties or a zipper. The duvet cover protects the comforter inside, and is also easy to wash or change out from season to season.

A duvet cover alone is extremely light weight, akin to a sheet, so the warmth is determined by the type of comforter used inside the decorative cover.

Duvet Covers are available in a variety of colors and styles from minimalist, hotel chic to ornate and glamourous. Duvet sets, including matching covers and shams, are also available. Don’t forget to select a comforter or duvet insert to go inside your duvet cover.
