Whether you like the boho vibes of natural linen or the sumptuousness of sateen, a pop of print or classic solids, we’ve rounded up five of the best linens and duvet covers to create an elegant yet effortless focal point for the bedroom. New year, new you … new bedding!

For that perfectly rumpled look: Parachute linen

Linen tells a story. It’s meant to look lived in and laid back, embracing a naturally wrinkled aesthetic over a pristine steam. But that’s just the appeal – a more casual, relaxed, and easy elegance. We love this linen duvet cover and shams from Parachute for its no-fuss, don’t-sweat-the-small-stuff kind of lifestyle. It’s basically the bedding equivalent of that Parisian je nais sais quoi.

For classic chic: Pottery Barn pleated sateen duvet set

You can never go wrong with sateen bedding. It’s a great option for primary and guest bedrooms (at a budget-friendly price point), and the fabric is soft, crisp, and durable. We love this duvet and shams set because it has simple, hand-pleated detailing that adds a little “something” to keep it from feeling too ordinary.

For a wild touch: Christiane Lemieux tiger sheets

We’re not suggesting you’re an animal in the sheets, but this cheeky print definitely gives off wild(life) vibes. We love this low-maintenance, eco-friendly cotton sheet set with its screen-printed tiger motif for so many reasons: It’s by Christiane Lemieux, it’s supremely sophisticated, and it has a bit of edge without being overly frilly or feminine.

For a riff on the linen look: Crate & Barrel hemp sheet set

Hemp offers a linen-like vibe but uses a stronger fiber. It gets softer over time, it’s lightweight and eco-friendly, and it’ll keep you cool all night long (and look cool during the day). This hemp sheet set is OEKO-TEX® Certified, which means it’s certified to be safe from 350 harmful substances — consider it a win for you, your health, your guests, and your home.

For an heirloom-worthy piece: Citizenry stonewashed linen quilt

This timeless, stunning linen quilt is crafted in Portugal at a storied linen mill. Whether you use it at the foot of the bed for a cozy layer, use it alone like a quilt, or snuggle up to it on the sofa for your next movie night, this quilt is an essential for your home (and offers the kind of quality your guests might just fight over).
