Bedding is always a personal matter, but sometimes we find ourselves wanting to consult the design experts themselves with the best sheets, comforters, and pillows they select over and over again for their clients, and even their homes.
So we asked eight interior designers about their favorite bedding brands, offering a mix of high-end and mainstream options. White bedding always seems to reign supreme, accented with a touch of detail. Interior designers today are looking for organic fabrics, and there also seems to be a preference for airy, breathable linen.
Don’t be too surprised if their favorites give you great bedroom ideas… best of all, we now know exactly where to find interior designers’ favorite bedding.
“We love using Coyuchi bedding, seen here in our Lowry Hill project. It has great hand and quality. We also used a leftover rug as lumbar support, which is a fun way to add texture and motifs.”

“I have Matteo’s linen bedding in every room of my house and it’s my absolute favorite. They have an amazing range of neutral tones that bring every room together, and I love how lightweight yet luxurious their linen is. – it really is made for any season and style.”

“I designed the lake house around the concept of ‘elevated camp vibes’ which meant that a gingham print had to be involved. This duvet cover was all I was looking for, and it became my bedding we’ve ever owned – period.Linen is that perfect texture to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.And the buttons at the bottom are covered in the same linen for a seamless look.Color wise , mink is almost a soft mauve-taupe that transitions beautifully from season to season.
“I’m notoriously picky about sheets and really did my homework before choosing this particular set. They’re organic cotton with a satin finish and feature the softest pale blue scalloped edge. I love the way they dry perfectly smooth, and I never need to squeeze when I remember to get them out of the dryer quickly.”
“I think overall bedding should be simple and classic with a touch of a wow factor. Our choice for main bedding is something linen ladies (opens in a new tab) where we work with Caroline Davis, who guides us on the style and product that best suits the space; as a classic chain link or lattice trim embroidered or appliquéd on a sheet of white cotton percale [as seen on this Matouk (opens in new tab) bedding]. Always white for us! For our wow factor, we make either custom European shams or a large lumbar pillow from a patterned fabric that complements the design.

“I like a white bed, and for my master bedroom I wanted the to see be calm and quiet, even if it’s noisy and chaotic, in reality. I’ve always wanted to try linen sheets and finally made the switch, and so glad I did! I’ve always loved the effortless look of linen and now I can vouch for the feel of linen. I may never come back. When I was looking for new bedding, I went straight to Cultiver. It was exactly what I had in mind. Effortless, chic and of incredible quality.”

“In our company we like to use bedding from Signoria Firenze (opens in a new tab), a beautiful brand of Italian bedding. I strongly believe in making your bed every day and making it easy to make. I like to layer our beds hotel style, with a bedspread (blanket) and a fluffy duvet folded at the foot of the bed. It’s super easy to do! Simply pull the bedspread all the way to hide wrinkled sheets. Next, fold the bedspread over the foot of the bed. Instead of a bunch of pillows, I like a big lumbar pillow placed in front of the sleeping pillows.”
