Once you experience the top-tier quality of luxury bedding, you’ll never want to sleep on anything else. Luckily, there are a wide range of luxury bedding retailers that sell deliciously soft and elegant linens.
What, exactly, makes luxury bedding stand out? “The first thing that comes to mind in bedding differentiation is texture,” says Raili Clasen, interior designer and founder of RailiCA Design. “I consider ‘regular’ bedding to be cotton sheeting with a classic duvet. Once you change out to Belgium linens or soft percale and add a cashmere or alpaca throw, the mood gets much more elevated.” Despite conventional wisdom, Clasen doesn’t recommend looking at thread count when shopping for luxury bedding, as she’s seen 400 count sheets that "feel like cheap satin.” Instead, you’ll want to consider factors like material, construction, and certifications.
To help you find the best bedding out there—no matter if you prefer classic cotton or high-end linen—we looked at all the tops brands and considered material, certifications, price, and policies plus polled an interior designer to come up with a definitive list of the best luxury bedding brands.
Here, the best places to buy luxury bedding worth every penny:
Bespoke, made-to-order bedding
Monograms available on many items
Extremely high-quality materials
All pieces sold separately
Sferra is the ultimate destination for extremely luxe, high-end bedding. The Italian brand uses only the highest quality materials, including Giza 45, the most premium grade of Egyptian cotton. What’s more, its Tailor Made and Nastro collections are made-to-order by craftsmen in Italy, so you know you’re getting the cream of the crop.
The brand carries all different types of bedding made from materials like sateen, percale, and linen, plus has a variety of designs to choose from, including plain, patterned, and embroidered designs. The one downside: All of the brand’s pieces are sold separately—there’s no option to bundle—so you’ll pay the price, with bedding that can cost several hundred dollars per piece.
Wide selection of designs and patterns
Monograms available on many products
Design Concierge service
Limited return window
Matouk gives you the unique opportunity to essentially turn your bedroom into a 5-star hotel room. The bedding brand offers several dozen bedding styles, including everything from traditional plain styles to stylish florals, all made of fine Egyptian cotton and complete with exquisite stitching and detailing that exudes elegance and sophistication.
Shopping on the brand’s website is easy: Matouk sorts its products into bed styles, so you can easily put together a cohesive look. And if you want assistance? The brand also offers a “Design Concierge” service for a one-on-one curated shopping experience with an expert who can put together exactly what you’re looking for with little-to-no effort on your part.
You can also fully customize your linens with monogramming and more. Just keep in mind that custom products can’t be returned, and for standard returns, you have 30 days from the shipping date. Products must be unused, unlaundered, and in their original packaging.
7-day free trial
Limited color selections
Expensive expedited shipping
Buffy bills themselves as “the planet’s best bedding,” and that’s because their products—comforters, sheets, blankets, pillows, and mattress protectors—are all made from eco-conscious materials. What’s more, the materials help keep the bedding cool, so the products are perfect for both sustainably minded and hot sleepers.
Testers at The Spruce loved both the Buffy Cloud Comforter, a medium-weight option with smooth and cool feel, and the breathable Eucalyptus Sheet Set. But if you’re anxious about trying something new, take advantage of Buffy’s 7-day free trial, which allows you to sleep with and use one of their products for 7 days. If you don’t want to keep it, you can return it free of charge.
Wide range of bedding
Certified organic materials
Generous return policy
Limited color palette
If you’re interested in more sustainable choices, you’ll love Coyuchi, which is one of the leaders in organic bedding. All of the brand’s products are made with certified organic materials and eco-friendly processes. The brand has all the most popular types of sheets, too, including percale and sateen cotton, linen, flannel, and even jersey. We also like that most products are available in several subdued colors, including light shades of pink, blue, gray, and beige.
Another nice perk: Coyuchi also carries an impressive selection of duvet covers, blankets, throws, and quilts, including options in interesting patterns and textures, so you can shop for all of your bedding needs in one convenient place—and everything will coordinate expertly.
Coyuchi has a pretty decent return policy, since they offer a full refund for returns within 30 days of purchase, but you can actually return most items within a full year of purchase and receive store credit equal to the original value—even if the item has been used.
Top-tier custom service
Generous return policy
Smaller product range
This relatively new direct-to-consumer bedding company has quickly gained a loyal following thanks to products like their Luxe Sateen sheets. They get rave reviews from buyers—including our own tester, who says they not only look nice but also feel great.
At Brooklinen, though luxury is the name of the game, their bedding stands out from the crowd because of the brand’s slightly more contemporary aesthetic. While many of its products do come in plain colors, the brand also frequently offers unique, modern patterns that bring a little added flair to the bedroom.
And while it’s true that Brooklinen’s line of products is a bit smaller than some other luxury retailers, they offer plenty to love, including sateen, percale, linen, and cashmere sheets, as well as a handful of blankets, quilts, and other bed accessories. Plus, you can’t beat their customer service—you can return any product, even used and laundered items included, within a year for a full refund or store credit.
Earthy color schemes
Moderate price point
Free style consultations
Several brick-and-mortar locations
Fabric swatches aren’t free
Like Brooklinen, Parachute is a relative newcomer that has catapulted in popularity in recent years thanks to quality bedding at reasonable prices. The brand does have several physical locations, but its core business is direct-to-consumer, and they’re widely praised for doing so in a very customer-focused and friendly way.
The brand nails aesthetics, too—particularly in an enviable and modern, yet timeless earthy, natural aesthetic. When shopping, you’ll find that Parachute offers percale, sateen, linen, and brushed cotton sheets, as well as down and down alternative comforters. They also have a variety of textured quilts and blankets, as well as matching shams, and they even recently added their Eco Comfort Mattress, a unique mattress-in-a-box made from pocketed steel coils and pure wool instead of memory foam.
Unique, eclectic styles
Physical stores around the country
Fun collaborations with other brands
Fee for returns
You won’t find your standard bedding choices at Anthropologie, but for anyone with a flair for the bohemian, this is a good thing. The chic fashion retailer also has an impressive array of home goods, including sheets, duvets, quilts, and blankets that will make your bedroom stand out. Everything is extremely unique—some even handmade by artisans—so you’ll source pieces in colors, patterns, and even materials that you won’t find anywhere else.
If there’s any downside to this, it’s that you’ll pay the price for the unique nature of the products. And if you don’t like what you purchased, you’ll have to fork over return shipping or visit a brick-and-mortar location.
Classic and farmhouse style designs
Many seasonal patterns
Retail stores nationwide
White glove delivery on furniture
Short return window
Pottery Barn is known for its timeless shabby-chic farmhouse-style products. But the retailer doesn’t just sell big-ticket furniture items: They also have every type of bedding, from sheets and shams to duvets, mattresses, and more.
Their bedding choices come in an array of timeless colors and patterns that include seasonal options—like special sheets for Christmas. And if you’re having trouble making your selection, you can always use the brand’s free online design service to ensure you pick just the right thing to suit your space. Alternatively, you can visit one of the brand’s many brick-and-mortar stores to see some of your choices in person and talk to an associate who can help.
Responsibly sourced materials
Focus on quality craftsmanship
Extra-deep sheets available
Sheets not sold in sets
Though it’s not the most expensive option on the list by a long shot, Garnet Hill sells a selection of very high-quality bedding that won’t disappoint. Everything is made with responsibly sourced materials and a high level of craftsmanship for a premium product that will last for years to come.
On Garnet Hill’s website, you’ll find just about anything you’re looking for—traditional duvets, quilts, and, of course, a wide selection of luxurious sheets in materials like percale, sateen, flannel, jersey, and linen. There’s no shortage of styles, either. You’ll find plenty of rich, solid colors, as well as timeless patterns.
If there’s any downside, it’s that Garnet Hill doesn’t offer product bundles. Buying everything a la carte can get quite expensive quickly.
Boll & Branch
Certified organic materials
Focus on sustainability
Deep pocket on fitted sheets
Customer service is only accessible Monday through Friday
For classic sophistication in your bedroom, Boll & Branch should be your destination. Though they have a relatively modest collection, Boll & Branch still has plenty of quality bedding options to choose from, including sateen, percale, chambray, and linen products. And while most of their bedding is available in plain colors with traditional designs, they do have a few products with more personality, including color block and floral patterns.
Their bedding isn’t just easy on the eyes, though. The fitted sheets have an extra-deep pocket that can fit mattresses up to 18 inches, making them ideal for those with pillowtop mattresses. And all of their bedding is made using organic cotton—the company places a large emphasis on sustainability, employing responsible waste and water management practices, and using recycled packaging.
Crane & Canopy
Colorful designs and patterns
Thoughtfully designed products
Easy-to-use duvet covers
Limited product selection
If you like to play with color, you’ll love the bright, fun selection of linens at Crane & Canopy. This brand has attractive sheet sets in every color imaginable, and many of its products feature stripes, geometric patterns, or embroidered scalloped edges for even more flair. They also have some very innovative products, like their signature Nova Duvet Cover, which is carefully designed to be easier to use. It has a zipper closure that’s faster than buttons, and its unique two-tone cover gives the appearance of a folded-down top sheet, creating the illusion of a perfectly made bed.
The downside to shopping here: While the brand definitely stands out from competitors thanks to its rainbow of colorful products, it only carries one type of cotton and linen sheets.
High-quality linen bedding
Made in USA
Zero Waste Program
Long lead time
Anyone who loves linen bedding should definitely have Linoto on their radar. The brand offers several types of linen bedding, all of which are handcrafted in New York from the finest raw materials. Their current product lines include traditional linen, Belgian eco-linen, and organic linen, and you can buy sheets in a full set or in individual pieces. They even offer duvet covers, shams, blankets, and more. (Outside of the bedroom, you can also get linen towels and kitchen linens from Linoto).
All of Linoto’s products are available in a wide range of colors and sizes, too. The standard linen sheet set comes in more than two dozen colors, and you can have split king, European queen and king, and Olympic king sizes made as a special order. You also have the option of standard, deep, or shallow pocket to ensure the sheets fit perfectly on your bed.
Serena & Lily
Refined coastal styles
Wide range of colors and patterns
Free design advice
Up to 10 free bedding swatches
Unfriendly return policy
Serena & Lily is a brand known for its contemporary take on coastal styles, and that’s exactly the aesthetic you’ll see in their bedding products. They carry a large selection of percale, sateen, and linen sheets, and their website is sorted by color, allowing you to easily find the exact hue you’re looking for. Plus, you’re able to choose from a wide range of both solid and patterned linens to perfectly suit your space—which may or may not include complementary products from other areas of the retailer’s website, from light fixtures to wallpaper.
If you want to see the fabric before you commit to it, Serena & Lily will even send up to 10 bedding swatches for free, and they also have a service that offers free design advice. If you prefer, you can also see the bedding in person by making an appointment at one of the brand’s design shops, which are located all around the country.
Luxury eucalyptus bedding
Bundles with or without top sheet
30-night trial period
No returns on international orders
Though a definite newcomer, Eucalyptus bedding is becoming incredibly popular. That’s because it's a more sustainable choice and has a luxurious silky soft feel. If you want to try it out, Sijo is one of your best options. This brand offers a comprehensive line of eucalyptus linens, including sheets, duvet covers, and even a duvet insert, all of which come in a range of pretty, subtle colors.
Sijo also carries a line of French linen bedding, and its products come with a 30-night trial period, during which you can return your purchase with no questions asked. Just note: You’ll only get free return shipping if your order totals $65 or more, and there are return exceptions for international customers.
Wide range of prices
Many physical locations
Not always the best quality
For those who like to shop in a more traditional way, browsing through products at a physical location, Macy’s offers a range of options, both budget-friendly and more luxurious. Of course, the selection does skew more affordable, but with hundreds of choices, you’re bound to come across some sophisticated options as well. The department store carries brands like Martha Stewart Collection, Hotel Collection, and Lauren Ralph Lauren.
You’ll likely score a deal—even on the luxury brands the retailer carries—since there are frequent sales on everything from sheets and blankets to pillows and even mattresses. Macy’s also offers a 90-day return policy with free shipping, making the whole shopping experience that much easier.
What to Look for in a Luxury Bedding Brand
There’s no real definition of what makes bedding “luxury,” and more often than not, the distinction is determined by price. Luxury bedding typically starts at around $100 for a set of sheets, but it can range to upward of $1,000 from truly high-end brands. You’ll want to consider a retailer’s price range as you shop for bedding, as well as whether they sell products in bundles or as individual pieces. Bundles often cost less than buying each piece separately.
There are a variety of fibers commonly used in luxury bedding, and the quality of the raw material is often what dictates the price. Organic and long-staple cotton are some of the “lower quality” luxury materials (don’t be deterred—they’re still lovely to sleep on!), while linen and Eygpian cotton are on the higher end. Certain luxury retailers also sell silk and eucalyptus bedding, but you’ll seldom see polyester or other synthetic fibers used in high-quality linens.
Despite conventional wisdom, Raili Clasen, interior designer and founder of RailiCA Design, doesn’t recommend looking at thread count when shopping for luxury bedding, as she’s seen 400-count sheets that “feel like cheap satin.” Instead, you’ll want to consider factors like material, construction, and certifications.
There are a variety of certifications that luxury bedding brands commonly put on their products, including:
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification: Verifies the product was made using organic materials and processes.
- Responsible Down Standard (RDS): For bedding using down feathers, verifies that the materials come from animals that have not been subjected to any unnecessary harm.
- STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX: Verifies that every component of the product has been tested for harmful substances.
- Fair Trade certified: The product was made according to rigorous social, environmental, and economic Fair Trade standards.
- Certified B Corporation: The brand meets standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
If you’re going to spend several hundred dollars on luxury bedding, it’s worth looking into the brand’s return policy. After all, you don’t want to be stuck with expensive bedding that you don’t like! Many brands offer a 30- or 60-day return period, but be sure to read the fine print on whether the bedding can be washed and if there’s a restocking fee.
Is luxury bedding worth the cost?
Many people believe that luxury bedding is a worthwhile splurge, including Clasen: “We spend so much time in between the sheets that it’s worth every extra penny,” she says. Luxury bedding is often softer and more attractive than lower-quality products, and it’s also made from more durable materials and construction, which means you won’t have to replace it as often.
What are the most common materials used for luxury bedding?
The two most common fibers used in luxury bedding are cotton and linen. However, there are several different tiers of cotton, including long-staple, organic, Turkish, and Egyptian cotton. These varieties often have different fiber lengths, which can affect their softness, absorbency, and durability. In general, Egyptian cotton is considered the most desirable variety of the fiber.
Linen is another extremely popular material for luxury bedding: “A very vintage linen sheet feels like it’s been washed down like a great pair of jeans,” says Clasen. “It’s so soft, and teamed with a cashmere throw, the comfort and coziness factor elevates to a different level.” Linen bedding is breathable and gets softer with every use, and with proper care, it can last for as many as 10 years.
How do you wash luxury bedding?
It’s important to follow the care instructions on your luxury bedding to ensure it stays in the best condition possible. Most high-end linens can be cleaned in the washing machine, but many should be dried on low heat to preserve the integrity of the fabric.
How often should luxury bedding be replaced?
The lifespan of your bedding will depend on how frequently you use it and whether you care for it properly. Parachute estimates that luxury cotton sheets will last for around three years with daily use, while linen sheets can last five years or longer. Duvet covers and other blankets can often last for several years before needing to be replaced. When you notice your bedding is ripped, fraying, stained, or worn out, it’s time to replace it.
