Essential Elements for a Beautiful Bedding Ensemble, Declassified

Garnet Hill Bedding Guide - Signature Flannel Bedding

Bedding 101: as purveyors of luxurious bedding, we’d like to share some need-to-know information about the different layered elements that make a bed shine.

Both are intended as a top layer for the bed. They provide decoration and add warmth. The main difference between the two is that quilts are always filled with either a thin layer of batting or flannel, and quilted to hold this fill securely in place. Coverlets tend not to have fill. They frequently get their depth and texture from a jacquard or matelassé pattern woven right into the design.

Comforters are always lofty and quilted whereas blankets can be lofty or woven flat. Our Essentials Collection allows you to pick a blanket or a comforter. The primary difference here is size and fill. The blankets have less fill and are larger, designed to drape beautifully or tuck under a mattress. They are versatile layers any time of year. The comforter is sized to skim the top of the bed, allowing you to turn it down on warmer nights. Comforters can come in a color or print to dress the top of the bed, or as white bedding basics, designed to be inserted into a duvet cover.

TomAto, tomato…to us, they’re exactly the same thing. They are fabric enclosures for a comforter (or duvet) to fit neatly inside, so you can change the look of the bed without having to purchase a whole new lofty layer.

Duvet is actually the European term for what we call a comforter. In Europe, if you protect your duvet with a cover, you might not use a flat top sheet. The cover acts as the barrier between you and the comforter. Over the years, we’re become accustomed to incorporating a flat sheet into our bedding ensemble for use with a duvet cover. If you tend to sleep warm, you can peel back the covered duvet and use the flat sheet as a cover.

The important thing to remember is that these covers are designed to have something inside. Our covers have a button closure that runs along the bottom edge. They also have ties in all four corners to anchor your duvet/comforter neatly in place.

Now you can style your bed by selecting the right layers for you. What pieces do you work into your bedding ensembles? For more inspiration, check out our featured room designs and explore our complete home collection.

Made in the USA: Our Hand-Selected Bed Collection

Beds Made in the USA

Garnet Hill Beds Made in the USAWe are proud of our bed and furniture collection — and are happy to say that almost all of our beds are made and finished by hand in the USA. Current trends, strong lines, and beautiful finishes — we look for distinctive pieces that will help you put your decor together.

Feel free to use our rooms and bedding ensembles as inspiration to plan your space. The right bed can make the room, so we edit our collection of beds, storage, and furniture to bring you pieces with which to create your own look (or recreate one of our signature decors).


The Kensington Iron Bed is one of our longest-running styles. Its details and finishes work well with any decor, modern eclectic to classic vintage — and the trundle option makes it a great choice for guest rooms and sleepovers. Over the years, we added the more stately Wheatland Iron Bed and the four-poster LaSalle Iron Bed — both elegant twists on traditional wooden designs that are worthy of master-suite status.

Garnet Hill Beds Made in the USAWOODEN’T YOU LOVE THIS?

Our wooden beds range from the ultra-sleek and minimalist Portland Platform Bed, always a customer favorite, to the elegant turned shapes of the Tulip Wooden Bed and the classic cutouts of the Alistair Wooden Bed. For an option that melds traditional lines and finials with the contemporary stature of a platform, we recommend the Windsor Wooden Bed.

The only bed that’s not made entirely in the USA is the Swedish Wooden Bed — and it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s made in Mexico, and hand-finished in the USA. This bed blends traditional Scandinavian design elements with rich vintage-inspired details like gracefully turned finials and antiqued distressed finishes.

Garnet Hill Beds Made in the USAON THE SOFTER SIDE…

There’s nothing like plush loft and fabulous fabric to soften the look and make the bed appear as inviting as the bedding. We chose the Hubbard Tufted Upholstered Bed and the Fairbanks Upholstered Bed for their gentle curved shapes and hand-applied nailhead detailing.

Garnet Hill Primaloft® Comfort Pillow

Best Down-Free Pillow - Garnet Hill Primaloft Comfort Pillow

We’re so proud — our Garnet Hill Primaloft® Comfort Pillow recently received another top honor. It was named “Best Synthetic-Fill Pillow” by Men’s Journal.

This pillow is designed with precisely the right amount of loft and a 2″ gusseted side to support your neck and spine, making it an ideal choice for side sleepers. And the Primaloft poly fill beautifully mimics the plush comfort of down, providing a down-free hypoallergenic alternative to sleepers with sensitivities.

Not only is this pillow the best in the industry, it’s currently the number one pillow in my house…As far as down alternatives go, we love Primaloft. The allergen-free fibers mimic the loft, adjustability, and resiliency of down, plus, you can throw it into the washer and dryer.”

We Went to Germany So You Could
Go to Sleep

Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Bedding

Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Bedding


Sleep is the last refuge of the over-busy soul. As long as you don’t bring your smartphone to bed (you don’t, do you?) it invites you to escape today long enough to recover for tomorrow.

So if you’re going to splurge anywhere, splurge where you snooze. On Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Sheets from Germany.

They’re 6.1 ounce flannel, a weightier, denser weave than most. Brushed an extravagant 10 times on both sides to be about as soft as soft gets.

When we first sold them, our European manufacturers (English blokes at the time) felt it was wasteful to make a fitted sheet that was brushed on both sides, since the underside would not be slept on. In pursuit of quality we persisted, and the nice folks across the pond eventually accommodated.

That was during the energy shortage of the 1970s. You look like you weren’t even born then, but trust us, after the price of oil spiked, thermostats were turned down faster than the volume of dad’s station wagon radio when “Jive Talkin’” came on.

So we invited customers to warm up in flannel. And they’ve indulged ever since. Lately, in Grandstand Floral and Heathered flannels, too.

Still, before you join the bedding connoisseurs, a few cautions.


Soft, soft, soft. Hard to get up in the cold mornings wrapped up in these.”


The only complaint I have about them is that they are so cozy my teenage son cannot get out of bed in the morning.”


The BEST bed to climb into on a cold winter’s night is one made with Garnet Hill Flannel sheets! I’ve been buying them for years and it’s one of the only things I actually like about winter.”


My husband even commented on how nice his sleep has been since putting them on the bed … now that’s results! :)”


They don’t pill like every other flannel sheet I ever met.”

Little or no shrinkage.”


I am almost ready to pass on Garnet Hill flannel sheets that I bought in 1991.”

We’ve broken it down to six easy-to-follow steps. Soon you won’t be able to tell your fitted from your flat sheets!

The Art of Making the Bed:
Comforter vs. Blanket

Garnet Hill Essential Blankets and Comforters

Garnet Hill Essential Blankets and Comforters

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a comforter and a blanket?

With our Essential Bedding Collection, you not only get the choice of down or down-free, but you also get the ability to mix and match a full spectrum of colors in both Comforter and Blanket sizes. These popular layering pieces make it easy to customize the bed based on your needs — and their subtle differences in size will make your bed look great. Here’s how we recommend that you use them.

The comforter is sized to sit neatly on top of the mattress, so it’s easy to layer without adding bulk to the sides of your bed. It’s the perfect layer nestled under an artfully pieced quilt or topped with an elegant coverlet, adding warmth and lightweight loft without making the sides look too poufy.

The blanket is designed to cascade and drape over the sides of the bed. It looks great on its own, or topping another layer. We like to layer it over a bold sheet print or another blanket of contrasting texture (like Cotton Fleece or Organic Cotton).

Plus, blankets also come in a throw size. A versatile throw looks great folded at the foot of the bed, tossed over the back of a chair, or draped on the arm of a sofa or loveseat. Throws also make great one-size-fits-all gifts!
