Until now, the term ‘luxury’ has been predominantly tied to the fashion world (see: Gucci’s Lunar New Year collection). But why don’t we apply that term to the very thing we spend a third of our lives enveloped in? If you’re going to splurge, it might as well be on something you’ll use all the time, right? From the enduring organic modern aesethic (which showcases relaxed, rumpled duvets) to this year’s more rustic, Hipstoric home look (which uses more refined, crisp linens)—everything about the current design trends speaks to sumptuous bed threads. 
It’s also worth mentioning, however, that each luxury bedding brand has its own vibe—kind of like Chanel with its quilts or Dior with its unique shapes. Plus, there are a number of new styles and stitches being released (with thread counts we have no idea how to quantify). So, after scoping out the sought-after, high-end bedding styles on the market, we’ve noticed three categories that seem to be reigning supreme: Hotel bedding, organic bedding and rustic bedding.

1. Hotel Bedding 

While home trends come and go, there’s one thing that’ll never go out of style: hotel bedding. It’s those crisp, cotton sheets that make you feel like you’re staying at the Four Seasons. “It’s entirely possible to buy exactly the same bed sheets as five-star luxury hotels. You just need to know what you’re looking for,” explains fine linens and luxury tableware expert, Rebecca Udall. “Hotels opt for a [suprima cotton bedding with] percale weaves over sateen, as percale epitomizes the cool, crisp feeling typical of a luxury hotel suite,” she explains. “High thread counts in bed linen have gained a reputation for ‘the best’ due to an association with numbers—in many things, more is more. However, hotels rarely use high thread counts. Instead, they opt for around [300 to 400] thread count. It makes for a more breathable fabric as they opt for a ‘true’ thread count over multi-ply yarns.” TL;DR: If you’re looking to replicate a hotel look, opt for cotton percale bedding with a thread-count between 300 and 400.

2. Organic Bedding

You’ve seen it all over Instagram: White beds with breezy, relaxed linen sheets. The trend has basically taken over our feeds since the onset of the organic modern fad—and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. That said, if you’re looking to recreate this look, there’s really only one thing you need: flax linen bedding. “Linen has a relaxed texture that is meant to look lived-in and loved,” explains Director of Branded Content, Cristina Gutierrez. “It’s a completely natural material and made from very fine fibers derived from the flax plant—[and] the fibers are spun into yarn and woven into long sheets of seriously comfortable fabric.” Plus, this fabric wears really well, often getting softer over time.When shopping, look for ‘flax linen’ with Oeko-Tex certification (which means it’s organic, free of harmful chemicals and ideal for sensitive skin).

3. Rustic Bedding 

Finally, if your style skews more eclectic, you want to create a rustic bedding look that’s equal parts upscale and farmhouse (read: Hipstoric heritage). Coverlets and quilts are making a major comeback—and unlike your grandmother’s patchwork blanket, today’s iterations feature muted, tone-on-tone patterns that keep the look minimal and cozy (without being kitschy). “[This year is about investing in] a beautifully made blanket that might be more expensive, but can be passed down through generations,” explains designer Rena Levine. “The concept of reviving foundational pieces that resonate in today's world is very 2023.”If you don’t have anything you can revive from granny’s basement, you want to look for vintage-inspired pieces with high-grade materials. Think: flannel sheets, fringed coverlets and floral percale duvets. Everything should exude a Ralph-Lauren-circa-1990 vibe with patterned or textured linens that can draw visual interest.

Best Hotel Bedding Collection

1. Frette Classic Collection

If there’s one Italian bedding label that’s synonymous high-end hotels, it’s Frette. Each of its collections is timeless, elegant and crisp to the touch—and its classic collection is no exception. Not only does it feature a smooth, Egyptian cotton bedding with a 200-thread-count percale weave, but it also includes a contrasting double row of embroidery along the border of its duvet, sheet set, and shams. “Percale sheets are crisp, light and keep you cool in the summer. I am a hot sleeper, and [this Frette set is the] absolute best percale in the entire world. I've had my set for going on fours years, and [it] still looks immaculate,” one reviewer writes. However, they also mention: “If you want percale to look [its] most beautiful, you have to iron the top sheet and pillowcases…This kind of cotton will wrinkle, but don't let that be a deterrent. These are the same wonderful sheets that are in many of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and they are truly a treat.”

Best Egyptian Cotton Sheet Set

2. Sferra Celeste Sheet Set

Yet another bedding brand that oozes hotel-like sophistication? Sferra. Take it from this best-selling percale sheet set, which is woven in Italy from extra-long-staple Egyptian cotton with a 406-thread-count. “I’m usually a sateen lover in sheets, but I like the coolness of percale in warm weather. This [sheet set] is wonderfully soft and the perfect weight—not too heavy. It is extremely balanced, both crisp and soft,” writes one reviewer. In terms of maintenance, it’s worth noting another reviewer’s advice: “Wash on cold, dry on delicate and check to shake out often as they tend to wrinkle…The sales women [said] she even puts hers on the bed slightly damp. Just don’t dry on hot to keep the luxurious feel.”

Best Percale Duvet Cover

3. Matouk Essex Duvet Cover

Crafted from pure, 350-thread count cotton, this duvet from Matouk features an elegant double satin stitch border in tonal hues (with a white-on-white option that keeps things sleek yet interesting). One reviewer raves: “Absolute best duvet I've ever owned! This is the 3rd Matouk duvet I've purchased and could not be happier. The fabric is crisp and has stayed just as [soft] after many many washes…[My] favorite feature is the zipper on the bottom of the duvet, rather than buttons. Makes changing the [insert] much easier.”

More often than not, five-star hotels will use a duvet cover with a plush, down alternative insert. BUT, if there were one comforter you’d find in the penthouse of the Ritz Carlton, it’d be this one from Ralph Lauren. Not only does it feature a clean, tailored look with an elegant (grey/navy) border trim, but it’s crafted with 300-thread-count cotton sateen (because it’s nearly impossible to find a decorative, percale-woven comforter—trust). That, coupled with the fact that it’s machine washable and OEKO-TEX certified, makes this guy our number one choice for a hotel comforter (sans the box-stitching). “I feel like I’m sleeping in luxury hotel [with] this comforter,” affirms one reviewer. “The sateen/cotton blend is perfection. So soft and warm yet light when you’re snuggled in! The silky feel is heavenly [and] the look is of the highest quality; I’ve had numerous compliments. True white with the simplest gray line border screams gorgeousness!”

Best Oversized Bedspread

5. Donna Karan Essential Quilt

OK, how insane is this designer quilt? It’s made from a Lyocell-silk blend that’s feels just as silky on the skin as it looks—and its selection of five classic hues can work with basically any design style. One reviewer writes, “Exceptional in every way. The silk-lyocell blend fabric lends both extreme softness and a cooling aspect. The stitching is meticulous, and the quality is top-notch. It’s [also] generously sized so that the sides extend properly for full coverage of my 20-inch mattress height. This is a winner through and through.” Oh, and did we mention that it’s totally machine washable? A rarity among quilts of this caliber.

Best Organic Bedding Collection

6. Coyuchi Scandinavian Bed Bundle  

ICYMI, Coyuchi is a bedding brand that 1.) prides itself on using ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices for the production of all its bedding and 2.) produces some of the most comfortably chic organic cotton textiles on the market. This bedding bundle is at the top of our list for a relaxed linen look, where it’s woven from a sturdy flax linen with a 185 gsm weight (that’s touted to get softer with every wash). Take it from one reviewer, who writes: “Absolutely wrapped in luxury when between [this bed bundle]. [It’s] the softest and most temperature regulating fabric I’ve slept in—[and] 5-star hotel sheets are no better than these. Worth every penny as they hold up for many years to come.” BTW, it’s GOTS-certified, so it meets global organic textile standards.

Best Linen Sheet Set

7. Snowe Home Linen Sheet Set

“Yes, these sheets are incredibly expensive, but they turn my bed into a cozy haven,” says fashion editor Abby Hepworth in a roundup of editors’ favorite sheets. “They’re ridiculously soft, help me stay cool in the summer and make me feel like I’m sleeping at a luxury resort (instead of my tiny NYC apartment). I was initially worried about my two kitties tearing them apart, but other than a few punctures, they’ve actually held up really well.” Not to mention that it comes in three, muted earthy tones that totally fit the laid-back linen look you’re going for. 

luxury bedding 8
The Citzenry

Best Stonewashed Duvet Cover

8. The Citzenry Stonewashed Linen Duvet Cover

Yet another bedding staple our editors love? This stonewashed linen duvet from the Citzenry, which was awarded 89 points out of 100 in a PureWow100 review. “Most [linen duvets] start getting pilly and ragged after nonstop washing, but [this one does] the opposite: Like a great pair of jeans, [it] gets better with wear. Admittedly, when I first unboxed [it], I was unsure—the French flax felt almost like burlap. It was stiffer than I’d anticipated (especially since I’d been sleeping on either bamboo or brushed microfiber sheets, which have a silky feel). But, with each wash, [it] softened, becoming cozier and cozier,” writes executive editor Candace Davison. Psst: They’re also machine-washable; just use the gentle cycle and dry on low heat.

luxury bedding 9
Cozy Earth

Best Silk Comforter

9. Cozy Earth Silk Comforter

If you’re looking to upgrade the linen look (while keeping the effortless vibe), this is the lavish comforter of your dreams. It’s filled with 100 percent mulberry silk (i.e., great for your skin and hair) and shelled with premium bamboo viscose, making it organic and ultra-soft to the touch. It’s also worth mentioning that this comforter features temperature-regulating properties, so its all-season breathability can keep you cool in the summer and insulated through winter. “I purchased [this] comforter in the king size [with] standard fill—[and it has a] Goldlilocks feel. It keeps you [at] the perfect temperature; not too warm, not too cold, but just right. It is also a comforter that fully [fits] a king-sized duvet bed (not overfilled that it is bursting at the seems, but a perfect weight),” one reviewer writes.  

luxury bedding 10

Best Vintage-Inspired Quilt

10. Hawkins New York Simple Linen Quilt

Lightweight, linen and stonewashed in Portugal for a naturally lived-in look, this is *the* organic quilt for a refined yet relaxed bed. Not only does it come in 10 vintage-inspired hues (with “olive” being our fave), but the Belgian flax linen construction is lightweight and breathable—and machine-washable—making it perfect for summer months. “I love linen bedding and the colors of these quilts caught my eye... I went back to this page several times before I decided to get it and I'm glad I did! [The] sizing of this quilt is very generous, and the queen fit perfectly to use as a spread. It is a lightweight quilt, which is perfect for my warmer climate...not to mention easy to pick up and shake when making the bed,” writes one reviewer.

Ralph Lauren Home

Best Rustic Bedding Collection

11. Ralph Lauren Home Camile Bedding Collection 

As we mentioned above, Ralph Lauren is the designer you want to channel for a rustic bedding look—and the brand’s Camile collection totally nails the boho-yet-cottagecore vibe we’re going for. The paisley prints were inspired by a Pashmina shawl—and you have plenty of options to build your bed—between its 200-thread-count cotton percale sheet set and the choice of a printed comforter or duvet cover (both woven from 300-thread-count, pure cotton sateen). “This [is] a beautiful comforter. The paisley pattern is classic and goes so well with any decor for a clean, elegant look. The sage and cream colors [complement] each other [while] the 300-thread-count is felt in the softness of the material,” writes one reviewer. Plus, another reviewer of the sheets writes: “This sheet [set] is beautiful! I love the embroidery on the top [and] it makes [me] feel like I’m sleeping in a luxurious hotel. [The set also] feels so nice and soft. I have washed it twice in the laundry and it washes well.” 

Plus, the collection also includes different versions of the same vibrant motif with everything from a chunky knit cotton blanket and yarn-dyed shams crafted from Belgian linen to an assortment of throw pillows with intricate embroidered details

Peacock Alley

While we wouldn’t typically equate flannel sheets with luxury, this set is giving us a totally new outlook. Not only is it made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton with a percale weave, but the 200 GSM flannel feels soft buttery (without being too thick). “I am always nervous with flannel sheets, as sometimes they feel thin and get too hot, [but] this could not be further from the truth with these sheets,” one reviewer shares. “They are amazing and thick— nice and soft without making you overheat—[and] the striped pattern is beautiful/looks amazing on our bed. Both my fiancé and I agree we have not slept better with other sheets. It's an obsession.” However, they also mention: “The bottom sheet is a bit large on our bed, but we just tucked the excess under the mattress and have not had a problem. These truly are amazing.”

Peacock Alley

Next up on our list of luxury is another Peacock Alley bedding staple that has reviewers raving. The duvet is woven from 100 percent cotton percale with a 200-thread-count that’s just as dreamy as it looks. “The fabric is very lovely to touch; so soft and yet feels like it will hold up for many years,” a reviewer writes. “The colors are [also] subtle and create a very peaceful look for the bedroom.” To that end, it’s worth mentioning that the design was inspired by rustic European architecture, where its floral motifs create dimension and interest while the overlock stitch detail provides a hint of texture. “The fabric is gorgeous and the blue design has created a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere to my bedroom,” another reviewer adds.

Ralph Lauren Home

Perhaps you’re sensing a theme here: Ralph Lauren bedding is back in a big way. Take it from this floral-printed comforter (yet another piece we’re loving from the brand’s revamped collection), which features 200-thread-count cotton percale. Not only do we love it for its naturally soft cotton (which is also OEKO-TEX-certified), but the painted bouquets with silhouetted flowers comes in a classic, blue-and-white palette that’s so *right now.* “This comforter is overfilled, fluffy and very warm,” writes one reviewer. “It is true to size and covers [the] frame at the bottom of the bed—[and] the blue and white [flowers] are so real looking. Washed well in commercial washer because it is big and heavy when wet. It dried well in my regular clothes dryer at home [and it held up perfectly].”

Serena and Lily

Best Fringe Coverlet

15. Serena and Lily Lakeside Coverlet

Finally, a waffle-woven coverlet—made from a machine-washable, 100 percent cotton construction—that can bring a quaint, B&B feel to your bedroom. The “raw, fringed edge brings a casual, easy-going look,” per the designers behind the brand, where they “took the inviting texture of a waffle weave and the classic look of a windowpane to create [a] timeless layer.” It’s also worth mentioning that they worked with special mill in Portugal to keep the cotton extra soft and drapey “to get the feel just right.”
