Good color options
Finding a duvet cover with a bit of personality is no easy task. In a world where trendy patterns and color palettes are changing constantly, it can be hard to nail down a duvet cover that will take you through the years without making your bedroom look outdated. Also, since you’re most likely spending each night with your bed linens, it’s best to make sure they’re soft, durable, and breathable.
We tested the Kiril Duvet Cover Set from Laurel Foundry Farmhouse, a label exclusive to Wayfair and its family of brands, and found that it doesn’t quite nail all of these categories, but it does its best—and, given that it goes on sale often, it could be the perfect duvet cover depending on your situation.
Material: Microfiber and polyester blend
You won’t find any high-quality cotton in this duvet cover, so chances are that it’s not going to last you a lifetime. Instead, it’s made from microfiber—but don’t run away yet. There’s one thing microfiber is really good at: repelling stains. While you may dream of sleeping on Egyptian cotton, your reality may be that your dog loves snuggling up with you every night, in which case this duvet may help keep your bed a little cleaner.
A good value for the price, but it won’t last a lifetime.
The material is marketed as hypoallergenic, and I can confirm that as a person prone to spring allergies, I didn’t wake up feeling stuffy and horrible in the morning—something that I do notice from time to time with materials and fabrics that don’t breathe well.
Design: Semi-solid stripes in seven color options
This particular duvet cover comes in a striped pattern with several color choices: Gray, Light Gray, Light Blue, Sage, Blush, Ivory, and Navy. From afar, it appears that the cover has a few solid strips, but upon a closer look, you’ll notice that it’s more of a rippled effect, almost as if the stripes were painted on with a sponge. Overall, it’s a pattern you don’t have to completely dedicate yourself to—it’ll blend in seamlessly with a room outfitted in other patterns and colors and won’t add too much of a distraction.

If you’re going to put a label on this duvet cover’s style, I’d call it more beachy than boho. The broken-up stripes do, for some reason, call visions of sand and sun to mind. One Wayfair reviewer described the duvet cover as “perfect for Florida nights,” and I couldn't agree more.
Texture: Smooth and hotel-like
The texture of this duvet cover reminded me of the duvet covers you’d encounter in a hotel room—just with a bit more pizzazz. Also, it’s worth noting that the striped pattern is also woven into the cover, so there’s no raised texture or embroidery throughout the product.
This duvet cover is machine-washable in cold water and buyers can tumble-dry it on low heat. In my experience, it actually gets even better as you wash it—the microfiber material was softer once I put it through the washer and dryer.
Although the duvet cover does wrinkle, I was surprised at how little it did. Maybe it was the striped pattern, but I didn’t notice wrinkles like I did while testing other options from brands like Brooklinen and Parachute.
Durability: This won’t be the last duvet cover you buy
While the duvet cover does get softer the more you wash it, it’s pretty obvious that it won’t spend a lifetime on your bed. However, because it’s so reasonably-priced, you can afford to give this one up once it’s done its duty.

The product listing on Wayfair does share that the duvet cover is fade-resistant. The colors do seem intentionally muted, so I wouldn’t see color fading as a huge issue for this set.
Features: Zipper closures and corner ties
In theory, the zipper closures on this duvet cover are quick and efficient. But after hearing them smack around in the washing machine and dryer, I can only imagine that there would be some damage eventually, assuming you wash this cover every couple of weeks.
However, the corner ties are very nice and measured up to the ties found on more expensive, higher-quality duvet covers.
Price: Goes on sale frequently
This duvet cover retails on Wayfair and its family of brands for approximately $100, but chances are it’ll go on sale if you wait a bit of time. Because its material is far from luxe, the full price seems a little steep, but if you can snag it on sale, but we vote it’s a great value.
Competition: There are fancier duvet covers out there
As I mentioned above, the microfiber material of this duvet cover makes it a bit more accessible price-wise. If you’re looking for a more luxe material like linen, expect to pay upwards of $250, like the options from Parachute Home. If you want more variety, check out Brooklinen’s duvet covers, which are available in colors and patterns that are both timeless and trendy.
However, if you’re just looking for a duvet cover to use, say, for your guest room, your options won’t get much better than this—especially if you catch it on sale.
