No fabric is softer, smoother, or more luxurious than velvet. It’s become a staple in interior design, often used for its luxe qualities to imbue a sense of opulence. But it’s not all about sumptuousness—velvet today can also be used more subtly, working with a range of interior design styles.
If you’re looking for a way to punch up your own space with velvet, we’ve rounded up our favorite velvet bedding, including quilts, coverlets, shams, and throw pillows.
Here, the best velvet bedding.
If you're looking to add a touch of luxury to your bedding situation, Parachute's Washed Velvet Quilt has got you covered. Made of cotton velvet on the front and cotton and linen on the back, the limited-edition style is washed specifically to have a soft, cozy feel that'll have you hitting the snooze button more than once. Plus, the neutral color is sure to fit right in with a variety of decor styles.
You can also sleep tight knowing the design is Oeko-Tex certified, meaning it's free of any dangerous chemicals and synthetics.
West Elm certainly wasn’t wrong when it put “lush” in the name of this lustrous bedding set, comprising a coverlet and two shams (sold separately). The regal blue velvet, made of viscose and nylon with a 100% cotton back, has a criss-cross stitching pattern that adds a hint of modernity to the otherwise classically sumptuous material.
The coverlet slips over a duvet and has four interior ties to keep it from shifting, while the shams have back flap closures. The bedding is machine washable and can be tumble dried, making for easy maintenance, so don’t be afraid to snuggle up!
Go big on texture with this lumbar pillow by Schoolhouse that combines velvet and corduroy for a smooth, soft feel on one side and a ridged one on the other. Sewn by hand in Portland, Oregon, the velvet and corduroy cover is made from 100% cotton—though you’ll want to dry clean it rather than wash it—and it’s stuffed with a down pillow insert.
This golden-hued pillow can actually work well as both a neutral and an accent color on a sofa, chair, or bed. And while it can be used in any room throughout the year, we particularly think it’s a lovely autumnal piece of decor!
If you want to try velvet bedding but aren't ready to fully commit, throw blankets are the perfect gateway piece. And there's no better place to start than this velvet style by Lands' End.
The throw, which is available in four colors, is perfect for those in search of a more traditional-looking style—but one that is punched up a notch thanks to its unexpected faux fur back that ensures you'll always be cozy. The front features a sophisticated stitched design that'll sit pretty anywhere you put it—beds, sofas, and front porches included.
If you prefer your velvet to be perfectly smooth, the Williams Sonoma Classic Velvet Duvet Cover & Shams set is for you. There are no additional textures, stitching, or frills here—save for a quiet three-inch flange on the shams—so the focus is entirely on the luxurious cotton velvet backed with high-quality Belgian linen. The bedding comes in both neutral and jewel-toned colors, so you can be sure to find a style that suits your bedroom.
Just a heads up: these duvet covers and shams are dry-clean only, as velvet can be a bit of a more delicate material when it comes to washing.
If you want to spruce up your bedding game with a more nontraditional look, this velvet sham set will do the trick. With a dip-dyed design throughout, you can give your space a luxe Bohemian flair without breaking the bank. Plus, thanks to the teal and white color palette, it'll still pair well with any of your pillows, throws, and accessories you might already have.
Velvet is often thought of as a warmer textile, but when you pair it with linen like in the Serena & Lily Delwood Velvet Quilt, you get bedding that’s perfect for use all year round. The cotton velvet is plush and lavish, while the European linen backing is light and airy—it’s an ideal combination.
The quilt features a simple stitching pattern of long, vertical rows that add just enough crinkled texture for a hint of informality. It comes in three soft colors: a light gray, a French blue, and a calm lavender. You can also buy matching shams, which are sold separately.
It’s all about the color choices when it comes to Frontgate’s Rumi Velvet Quilt: the blanket comes in an impressive number of hues, from forest green to the blue-gray cadet blue to a deep red wine. You can use the quilt on your bed as a relatively lightweight yet super-warm layer, or you could even use it as a throw for your sofa. It’s machine washable, so it can handle frequent use more than some other bedding products on this list!
The quilt is actually part of a collection that includes a variety of shams, so it’s easy to mix-and-match different colors, or to simply go with a cohesive set.
With this Target bedding set, you'll always wake up on the right side of the bed. That's because the comforter, which is available in three sizes, has a double-sided design that features luxe velvet on one end and a floral pattern on the other. Basically, you can change up the look of your bedding daily based on your mood.
The set, which also includes one sham, is machine washable too, so you can easily give it a refresh whenever you need.
Your favorite waffle tee gets an upgrade with this velvet fitted sheet. Made of polyester and fleece velvet, the machine-washable sheet has a waffle design that serves as a unique departure from other traditional styles.
In addition to two sizes, the design is also available in pillowcases, too, so you can make it a full set that'll keep you warm and cozy from head to toe.
