Serving as a veritable one-stop shop for all your bedding needs is Leesa, otherwise known as the supplier of all my z's and dreams. The brand started off with its beds-in-boxes, but has quickly expanded its lineup to include a wide range of offerings, including pillow, sheets, blankets, and yes, even adjustable bed frames.
The Leesa mattress is easily my favorite mattress of all time. Not only is it remarkably attractive, what with its grey and white upholstered pattern, but it's almost too comfortable — really, it's difficult to convince yourself to get out of bed in the morning.
Leesa recently re-engineered its trademark mattress, and somehow made it even better with the addition of its new LSA200 foam layer, which adds additional pressure relief and is incredibly responsive to your body's needs.
I'm also a huge fan of Leesa's blanket, which is made from the same material as its mattress' upholstered cover. The polyester blend fabric is made of 70% polyester, 17% viscose, and 13% nylon. It's finished with an elegant whipstitch edging, comprised of 100% mercerized Egyptian cotton.
Cozy enough for the winter as an extra blanket and breathable enough for the summer as the only thing on your bed, this blanket has been my go-to piece of bedding since it first made its way into my life.
If you're looking for a bed base, Leesa can help with its whisper-quiet adjustable bed frame. Though it doesn't have as many technical bells and whistles as other more expensive models, it's one of the most affordable bases around, which makes it all the more attractive. The pillows are also amazing.
Pros: All-encompassing product selection, affordable pieces, great quality, great comfort
Cons: None to really speak of
It’s difficult to realize just how significant a difference a great set of sheets can make in your life until you’ve met a great set of sheets. And here to make all the requisite introductions is Brooklinen.
Undoubtedly my favorite place to buy sheets, Brooklinen was launched on Kickstarter in April 2014 by husband-and-wife team Vicki and Rich Fulop, and since then, has made a name for itself based on its high-quality sheets and other bedding products, and most importantly. Unlike other luxury bedding companies that will make you lose sleep over the high prices, Brooklinen is surprisingly affordable.
The brand offers sheets in two options: There’s the Classic sheets, made of Brooklinen’s signature long-staple cotton percale, and then the Luxe sheets, which are quite the indulgence. These silky, 480-thread-count cotton sateen sheets boast a rich finish and are some of the most comfortable sheets I’ve slept in.
Brooklinen also boasts an awesome lineup of comforters in both natural down and down alternative. I’m a big fan of the lightweight versions, which are perfect for warmer climates.
Blankets and pillows also abound at this bedding startup, but it’s worth mentioning that beyond the bedroom, Brooklinen can also take care of your bathroom. Its towels come in super-plus, mid-plush, and hammam varieties, and all are worth checking out.
Pros: High-quality sheets in a wide range of styles, great prints, reasonable price point
Cons: If Brooklinen offered even more by way of bedding, we’d buy it all
Variety, thy name is Crane & Canopy. This online bedding startup has one of the most extensive collections of comforter sets, sheets, and duvet covers I’ve seen, and each seems to be more attractive than the last. Whether you maintain a traditional decor in your home or a more modern take on accessories, Crane & Canopy has something for you.
We’re huge fans of the Nova duvet cover, which will set you back somewhere between $139 and $179. The cover makes it seem as though you’ve spent hours making your bed even though you spent five minutes. Thanks to its strategically placed color blocking and piping, this duvet cover practically screams luxury, even though it requires very little effort on your end.
This particular duvet cover is available in no fewer than 40 prints and colors, so there’s certainly something for anyone and everyone.
Also available from Crane & Canopy are some seriously comfortable sheet sets. The 400-count sheets are woven from premium extra-long staple cotton, which makes for a sateen-like finish. While the sheets are available in classic, solid colors, Crane & Canopy also has a number of more creative offerings for the pattern-loving among us.
Quilts, pillows, comforters, and mattress pads are also available from this bedding startup, so if you want your entire bedding ensemble to match, you’ve come to the right place.
Pros: Great patterns and prints, wide selection of offerings, sleek aesthetic, affordable price point
Cons: You may be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of optionality Crane & Canopy offers
If you're in search of luxury — in terms of materials, craftsmanship, and most importantly, ethics — you can end your search at the digital doorstep of Boll & Branch. While products from this startup don't come cheap, you're paying for some serious quality.
Boll & Branch is committed to using Fair Trade organic cotton, a commitment that husband and wife team Scott and Missy Tannen have stuck to since the company was founded in January 2014. The extra bucks you'll pay for this classification pay for themselves when it comes to comfort.
Boll & Branch offers some of the softest, thoughtfully designed, and premium-looking sheets on the market. The fitted sheet has deep corners to help it stay on your mattress, and because of the high-quality fabric and resulting finish, making your bed has never helped it look so expensive.
I also love Boll & Branch's pillows, the most recent of which underwent 100 prototypes-worth of testing before making it to the market. The new pillow ranges in price from $80 to $170 depending on the size, fill, and density you select. While that may seem like a steep price tag, you're paying for the option to customize your pillow to your exact specifications.
Boll & Branch has expanded its offerings as of late to include a cozy all-season duvet insert, as well as a range of duvet covers. And now, you can also buy your mattress from the company. As you might expect, the mattress is topped with an organic cotton layer and is constructed with naturally-derived materials. But it'll cost you $2,500.
Pros: Practically unparalleled luxury, great craftsmanship, Fair Trade organic cotton used throughout all products
Cons: Boll & Branch does not come cheap
If your bedding has one job, it's to keep you warm and cozy. And here to fulfill that duty to its very fullest potential is Parachute. If ever I could cuddle with a brand, this would be it. I'm in love with its more luxurious fabrics like linen and Percale Sateen, which are unbelievably soft and comfortable.
One of the best things about Parachute is that it allows you to customize your sheet sets. While most companies offer a standard packaged deal, Parachute allows you to mix and match as you see fit, which can either help you save money or splurge.
If you are going to splurge, you'll probably want to spring for the universally adored Percale sheets. This material crinkles much like your favorite button-down shirt, but is incredibly soft — much more so than most other sheets in a similar price range. That's likely due in part to the fact that Parachute does not treat its fabrics with any toxic chemicals and lets the natural state of the material shine through.
One of my very favorite Parachute offerings comes in the form of its bathrobe and slippers set. The Cashmere Blend Robe, while a splurge at nearly $250, is easily the single most comfortable thing I've ever worn. Whether you're coming out of the shower or just lounging around at the end of the day, this is one of the best things you'll ever slip into.
Parachute also offers duvet covers, quilts, pillows, and a feather bed mattress topper that helps you feel like you're literally sleeping on a cloud. Parachute's attention to detail is evident among all its products — take, for example, the pillow case, which has an envelope enclosure that ensures that your pillow doesn't slide out as you toss and turn. The duvet covers, on the other hand, have a button closure as well as twill ties in all corners, as well as a flap of fabric that helps to smooth out the edges.
Pros: Extremely cozy, comfortable material, great attention to detail, ability to mix and match
Cons: Parachute, like Boll & Branch, is more on the expensive side of things
Brooklyn Bedding, like Leesa, is one of the most comprehensive bedding startups you can find. And to make matters even better, Brooklyn Bedding is one of the most affordable brands on the market, with sheets starting at just $39.99, and mattresses starting at less than $400.
Despite its surprisingly low price tags, Brooklyn Bedding doesn't skimp on quality — and if you're looking for something a bit more high-end, the company also offers premium versions of most of its products.
In terms of its mattresses, I'm a fan of the Bloom Hybrid, which actually allows you to choose the level of firmness you'd prefer upon checkout. The mattress top is constructed with sustainably sourced Joma Wool and organic cotton, which allows for breathability and fantastic moisture wicking properties.
Thanks to its top layer of Talalay latex, this mattress is pleasantly bouncy — great for jumping on, but also great for tension relief.
On the sheet set front, I love the soft and breathable Bamboo Twill. Though a bit more expensive than the basic microfiber set, they're still quite affordable at $79 and are exceptionally useful during the warmer months when you might otherwise feel like you're sleeping in a sauna.
Brooklyn Bedding also offers a couple pillow options, as well as mattress protectors and foundations for you to round out your entire bedroom set. Given how affordable everything is, you could easily outfit your whole sleep setup without breaking the bank.
Pros: Very affordable, high-end and basic options available on most products, great customer service
Cons: If you're looking for luxury, Brooklyn Bedding may not be the place for you
