The Best Scandinavian Bedding Brands

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.

Hygge: we hear about it alsl the time. Candles, cosiness, warm cups of tea.

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:

Tekla Fabrics

Think of Tekla as the Old Celine of bedding; it’s minimalist, stylish, and the branding is really good.

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.

Marimekko bedding

Known for their delightful, colorful textile patterns, Marimekko’s foray into bedding seems an obvious direction.

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.

HIMLA Bedding

Lifestyle brand from Sweden, HIMLA, has a range of great textiles including towels, tablecloths and more. But their slightly pearlescent cotton satin bedding is a cut above.

We, of course, recommend the classic Hästens Original.

Rendered in GOTS-certified organic linen, the bedding from Ordinary Things is perfectly distilled Scandinavian design: streamlined, beautifully-crafted and made-to-last.

The way the linen is gently rumpled only adds to the allure of those fluffy pillows and duvets, right? Their bedclothes come in a calming array of neutral colors.

Best Duvet in the UK and Europe

You can’t go wrong with a ggsted duvet, widely considered one of the best brands in Scandinavia. It’s very easy to buy online at Ellos. I like a heavy duvet all year round, while our Creative Director Freya opts for a light comforter in the summer, and a medium duvet one in the winter.
