High/Low: Linen Bedding

 

Linen bedding ticks all my decor-related boxes: it's very comfortable, with a slightly heavier weight I prefer to cotton, has a relaxed feel, and gets better with age.  My linen love affair began with the purchase of a duvet and shams, which wound up being the gateway to a full linen bed.

There is an abundance of linen bedding available, with direct-to-consumer companies like Parachute and Cultiver offering high-quality, reasonably-priced options.  Here are my top high and low-priced linen bedding picks.

 

HIGH

 

Paris-based Merci has beautiful quality bedding in the widest (and most beautiful) color assortment.  Their linen is soft, light-weight and a bit refined.

Washed Linen Duvet Cover; $291.51/queen (220 x 240cm).

Washed Linen Fitted Sheet; $138.64/queen (160 x 200cm).

Washed Linen Pillowcase; $45.44/standard (50 x 70cm).

 

LOW

 

H&M offers high-quality linen bedding for a great price.  Fast-fashion companies aren't my first choice when buying for longevity (they aren't my first choice for a number of reasons, really).  That said, I've owned one of their duvet cover/sham sets for three years, and while I loved it when it arrived (slightly heavier and stiffer than Merci's linen), it's gotten even better, and softer, over time without losing it's crisp feel.
