Tired minds don’t fare well. The hustle and bustle of our day-to-day lives can leave us feeling bereft of valuable hours of sleep and keep us from, well, functioning. So, it is even more important that when we enter the gilded hours of our REM sleep at night, we lie comfortably. Mattresses are one pillar, bed frames another — but let’s not forget the perfect bedding to make the most of our down time.
From sheets and throws, to duvets and pillows, these are the Vogue editor’s tried and trusted favorites to guarantee a good night’s sleep. Trust us, we’ve tried them all.

Tekla wins the textile game in my home. Since upgrading our towels and bath robes for the former Acne designer’s thick organic terry versions, it seemed rude not to overhaul our bedding too. Next on the list? The mohair and wool-blend blanket to throw on top of the duvet for maximum cosiness.

I am a true believer that what you sleep in is as important as what you sleep on. My go-to bed linen is from Piglet. Made of 100 per cent linen and available in an array of earthy tones, it makes slipping into my sheets each night a real moment (which is as it should be). I also recently switched my duvet out for a new one from Dusk, which seems to keep me warm when I’m cold, and cool when I’m warm. The best of every world.

Investing in Tekla bedding was one of the best decisions I made in lockdown, back when we were all frantically color coordinating our bookshelves and rearranging the kitchen furniture. The 100 percent organic percale cotton duvet set – in a gorgeously washed-out shade of mallow pink – makes me happy every time I turn in.

I adore the bedding done by my friends at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi – I can think of no better place to spend a rainy afternoon than curled up on a bed piled high with their gorgeous quilted eiderdowns and printed pillows. I operate a more is more policy here with regards to both quantity and a variety of clashing prints.

I’d love to claim bedroom ownership of Colville’s delightfully cozy wool blanket, but my cat also has eyes for its striking stripe details. For lie-in lovers and spoilt kitties alike, this is a sublime snuggly layer for a welcome weekend of waking up late, featuring bold asymmetric patterning that has the charm of Milanese furnishings. I’m also having recurring dreams about the brand’s bright dotted pillows, which would prop my head up perfectly on a Sunday morning.

This might seem like a bit of a curvebeall, but you wouldn’t believe how many industry insiders have recommended H&M’s linen bedding to me. Coming in a range of shades, I have lost count of the number of times I’ve spotted the brand’s offering on big-name Instagram feeds. Soft, cooling and easily washable – what more could you possibly want?
Sarah Harris, Deputy Editor & Fashion Features Editor
Bedfolk told me that their duvets are like sleeping under a cloud and honestly, I wouldn’t disagree. I recently snapped up their recycled down duvet – made from 100% recycled down; they take pre-loved down from luxury apparel and regenerate it – and have never slept better. I also added their classic cotton sheets in dove gray to my basket, super-smooth, they’re woven from the finest single-ply cotton. The only downside? It doesn’t make you want to get up and go in the morning, rather, hit the snooze button for a few minutes more.

Whoever told me to only ever sleep in cotton sheets did a) not have my best interest at heart or b) has never spent a night in Cultiver’s linen sheets. Thankfully I’m a convert now and – if that’s even possible – I’m even more excited now to get to bed at night. There’s this crisp (fret not, they’re uber comfortable) quality to them that makes me feel like I’m checking into a luxury Moroccan resort. Another firm favourite? APC’s signature quilts. There’s nothing more homely than the combination of the two.

I love these high thread count sheets and pillow cases which I buy in pristine white. They seem to get better the more you use them.
Rachel Garrahan, Jewelery & Watch Director
It could just be for a 20 minute schluff or, if I’m really lucky, a full-blown 12 hour all-nighter, but there is nothing I love more than getting into bed. I’ve fallen for Coco and Wolf’s pillowcases in Prospect Road, a Clarice Cliff-inspired archival Liberty fabric in luxurious silk satin, which has the added benefit of being kind to my skin and hair. Combined with the calming blue and enveloping softness of Caravane’s chambray bedding, I’m off to the Land of Nod in an instant.

I’ve had my eye on Swedish lifestyle and bedding brand Magniberg since they launched in 2016. They are bedding disrupters (yes that’s a thing!) and its selection of peppy colors and fresh interiors styling caught my eye instantly. I love these sunny spring yellow and stripe sets and will mix and match the sheets like I would an outfit.
