For the past six years, I’ve exclusively owned Pottery Barn duvet covers. They’re soft, well made and pretty stylish, so I thought I’d never stray from my beloved linens. But then I started to get bored with the tufted design on my current duvet cover. I wanted a more classic style, but I just couldn’t stomach spending well over $100 to give my bedroom an impromptu facelift.
Naturally, I headed to Amazon to do a little sleuthing. And the results did not disappoint. I came across this $60 Pinzon sateen hotel stitch duvet cover, and after scrolling through just four glowing reviews (although there are hundreds more), I added it to my cart.
This cover is made from 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton—a material usually reserved for high-end bedding—and feels almost identical to my Pottery Barn one. But thanks to Amazon’s private label Pinzon, high-quality linens don’t have to feel like a major splurge. After all, you should be replacing your duvet every five years, per The Fine Bedding Company, and it will get pretty pricey if you’re shelling out hundreds every single time.
As soon as I slipped the cover over my duvet and secured the buttons, I could tell I was in for a great night’s sleep. And when I got under the covers, I felt like I was at the Ritz (or really, any four-star hotel), not the same old bed I sleep in every night. If I had to guess, I’d say it was the combination of the silky, sateen-finished fabric and the classic hotel stitch style that suddenly made my bedroom feel way more elevated. The only thing missing was turn-down service and a chocolate on my pillow.
