Whether we’re shopping for bedding in pure French linen, Egyptian cotton, or a crisp percale, these are the best bedding brands to shop in 2024, and a few of our favourite duvet covers from each.

Which bedding brands are the best?

John Lewis Crisp and Fresh 200 Egyptian Cotton Bedding

John Lewis Warm & Cosy Plain Brushed Cotton

With prices starting from £9.50 for pillowcases, John Lewis has one of the best ranges of bedding for that balance of price and quality. From Egyptian cotton options to some of our favourite brushed cotton sheets, plus a range of colours that extends beyond whites, greys and navys, it’s an easy option for any and all bedroom styles and sleepers, as well as various price points too.

The White Company Brecon Stripe Duvet Cover

The White Company Savoy Bed Linen Collection

The White Company has a reputation for high-quality, premium bedding, and after one night sleeping with its sheet sets, it is easy to see why. Super minimalist and neutral (the clue is in the name), all of the fabrics have a lovely luxury feel to them in chic, classic designs.

Soho Home Luna Linen Bedding

Featuring bedding that’s either inspired by or found in Soho House outposts around the world, Soho Home’s collection is one that you just know will look and feel good. From linen sheets that have a relaxed, summery feel (for the hot sleepers out there) to the brand’s House Duvet, it’s pretty hard to go wrong if you’re after a good night’s sleep with this hotel-quality range.

If you’re looking for GQ’s picks of the best bedding brands and our favourite places to buy bedding, along with a couple of our favourite sets from each place, you can find a full list below.

It’s no secret that The White Company has some of the most elegant bedding on the market, all in chic neutral and minimalistic designs that can fit seamlessly into any space, elevating even the most tired of bed frames. All with a super luxe feel, we’re currently loving the brushed cotton textture of the Powys set for the colder months (that we’re still in), while the Savoy is a year-round staple.

The White Company Savoy

  • Reasons to buy: Luxury, hotel-quality bedding at its finest

The White Company Savoy Bed Linen Collection

With a high thread count of 400, the Savoy collection is smooth enough to fit right into any five-star hotel you could imagine. The finish is soft to the touch but with a nice crispness to it, while the subtle border elevates the look even further. We’d say this is a one-way ticket to peak elegance if we ever saw one. From £28. At thewhitecompany.com

The White Company Brecon Stripe Bed Linen Collection

  • Reasons to buy: Cosy, but luxurious with a neutral stripe design that will look great in any bedroom

The White Company Brecon Stripe Duvet Cover

If the Savoy is all about luxury, think of the Brecon Stripe as its more relaxed cousin. Still chic and refined but giving off more of an elegant cosy vibe than a pristinely put-together one, it’s ideal for the chillier nights when you just want something a bit more comforting. The brushed cotton has a nice velvety, textured feel with the contrasting neutral stripe bringing a bit of personality to your space. From £20. At thewhitecompany.com

If you’ve not yet spent a good chunk of time browsing through La Redoute’s interiors site, you’re missing a trick. An online marketplace, La Redoute’s mission is to platform French-style designers and brands in order to make them more globally accessible. The product line comes from France, with a range of pieces that are all, thankfully, pretty affordable as well. French interiors naturally have long been held in high esteem, so where better to track down some new bedding from? With designs that go bolder and take a more creative approach than some of the more minimalist British brands, incorporating texture more prominently and a variety of colours, you can shop classic chic looks and bright patterns alike.

Linen bedding can actually be pretty pricy, especially if you want some that doesn’t just feel rough against the skin, but soft and comfortable. La Redoute’s own brand has exactly the balance we’re after, made from 100 per cent washed linen (meaning it shouldn’t feel abrasive). The white linen design is the most versatile and easy to pair, but if you fancy being a bit more fun, La Redoute has 23 different colour options available for you to tailor to your bedroom. From taupe and grey-green to wisteria mauve and even an ochre yellow, the world is really your oyster with this selection. From £115 £81. At laredoute.co.uk

La Redoute Interieurs Yacht Striped 100% Cotton Duvet Cover

If you want to get your bedroom feeling bright and summery throughout the year, nothing does it quite as well as channelling a nautical vibe with some fresh stripes. Aptly described by the French brand as ‘yacht style’, the design consists of thick neutral stripes in either a grey or navy colourway. Pop this in a guest bedroom and you’ll be fully giving anyone who stays a good dose of holiday buzz, while the 100 per cent cotton and machine washable design makes it durable, easy to clean and super comfortable. From £16 £13. At laredoute.co.uk

Inspired by the pieces used in Soho House outposts around the world, you can be sure Soho Home’s bedding is well worthy of your attention. Made with high-quality materials, it’s all about creating a hotel-quality feel, but while also capturing the comforting and relaxed nature of home. The aesthetics are contemporary, with some sleek and some more rustic designs, as well as a nice range of colour options that finally put to bed the idea that to get hotel-standard pieces, you can only opt for white sheets.

Soho Home Luna Linen Bedding

Linen has been trending for a while now, and this set from Soho Home is one of the more luxurious of the linen brands on the market. Made with 100 per cent natural flax-fibre linen and put through a laundry process before being ready for sale, the bedding forgoes any of the scratchiness that is too often associated with the material, instead being as soft and comfortable (if not more) as cotton. Pair that with its breathability and suitability for warm summers, and you’ve got yourself some impressive bedding. From £246 £160. At sohohome.com

Used in Soho House bedrooms themselves, these cotton percale sheets are loved by guests around the globe just as much as they are by us. From £64. At sohohome.com

The charcoal colourway adds a sexy slice of noir, too if you fancy going over to the dark side. From £50 £20. At dusk.com

Available in single, double, king and super king sizes, the bedding is crafted from a 100 per cent cotton, 200 thread count percale weave, which makes it crisp and cosy in equal measure. From £38 £15.

Launched in 2017 by husband and wife team Jonathan and Emily Attwood, Scooms was born out of a desire to find the perfect bedding that would not only look and feel luxurious but would be suitable for allergy sufferers, too, as Emily is allergic to dust mites.

Partners in life and in business, Genevieve Rosen-Biller and Alan Biller started Bed Threads with a desire to find pure, 100 per cent linen bedding for their home. It needed to be top quality, low-maintenance, easy on the environment, and affordable – a tall order even a few years ago. That old adage, ‘if you want something doing, do it yourself’, rang true for the pair, who launched the brand in 2017 and haven’t looked back since. Alongside the linen bedding, Bed Threads also offers bathroom textiles, tableware, sleepwear, and some covetable home accessories, too.

At bedthreads.com

How do I choose the right bedding?

Bedding can be pretty personal, and much of your choice depends on your needs, as well as the style you want to go for. The finest Egyptian cotton can bring hotel-style crispness to your sleep space, while low-maintenance French linen gives you a much more relaxed aesthetic. Meanwhile silk pillowcases have skin and hair benefits, while organic cotton bedding is responsibly made. Look for bed sheets that offer breathability, and temperature-regulating properties and you’ll have year-round comfort.

How important is thread count?

Thread count literally means the number of threads, or yarns of fabric, counted within a square inch of the material. This is particularly pertinent if you’re choosing cotton bedding. As a general rule of thumb, the higher the thread count, the better the quality. That said, fabrics like linen and silk are seen as equally luxurious, but are less reliant on thread count to tell you they’re worth investing in.

How do bedding bundles work?

While there’s definitely something to be said for buying bedding pieces individually – especially if you want to build up your collection over time, most contemporary bedding brands offer handy bundles, meaning you can buy your duvet cover, sheet and pair of pillowcases in one fell swoop – and save as much as 20 per cent off the overall cost.
