The best bedding should be comfortable, well-made and look good through multiple washings (because you do need to wash it occasionally, you know).
It should make you want to fall onto your mattress, and feel happy when the bed is made. While there are many bedding options, Nordic countries have a great selection of high-quality brands that are just begging to go to bed with you.
Let’s cut right to the chase, shall we? There’s nothing more hyggeligt than curling up under a fluffy duvet in your bed.
These are the best Scandinavian bedding brands that will keep you cosy in winter, cool in summer, and your bed looking chic all year round:
Their colors, from a creamy yellow to a puffy pale pink, are everything you need to make your sleeping space a little slice of heaven. Their cotton and linen fabrics age well, so your bed will look fresh for a long time.
Though they do have some really bold choices – like the Unikko duvet in red – they also have a range of more calm, casual patterns that will make the more conservative among us happy.
