What's The Difference Between Quilts, Comforters, Duvets, & Blankets?

As the seasons change, many are searching for a new bedding set to keep cozy with the ever-fluctuating weather. With so many different bedding options on the market, it can be overwhelming to look for the right one for your room.

We have many different types of bedding on our site, so here is a guide to help you find exactly what you're looking for!



Blankets can come in varying sizes depending on your needs. Some are small enough to just cover your lap and some are large enough to use as a bed blanket.
Throw blankets are decorative pieces that you can “throw” on top of any existing bedding set, couch, chair, or anywhere in the home. They are great options when all you want is a pop of color, some extra softness, or an easy on-the-go comfort item (like a blankie!) you can take anywhere you travel.



A classic go-to when you are looking for something thick, cozy, and warm. Comforters are made pre-filled with goose down (feathers) or hypoallergenic synthetic materials with a decorative outer layer. The filling is stitched in place to prevent shifting. Our comforters are always made with cruelty-free down-alternative filling.

Duvets & Covers


Duvets are like plain comforters, without any design at all. They require removable covers for protection and style. Duvet Covers can effortlessly transform your bedroom style in minutes and they are easy to wash, fold, and store away.

Our duvet covers are all made with inside corner ties to keep the duvet in place and a zipper closure for a sleek look.


One of the most popular and versatile bedding options. Made with a layer of fabric on top, inside batting (filling) and the bottom layer of fabric all stitched together to form a Quilt.

A traditional quilt will have a top layer of patchwork which utilizes different fabrics stitched together to form a pattern.

Our quilts are made with authentic patchwork, we also offer unique printed designs and solid quilts which have intricate stitching designs.

Bedspreads & Coverlets

These two are similar to quilts in the sense that they are all generally thin, lightweight, and made with similar materials. However, they each have distinguishing differences.

Bedspreads (or spreads) are bed covers that will drape down to the floor to eliminate the need for a bed skirt. These are great to have a regal elegant look for your bed.

Coverlets are very thin single-layer blankets, short enough to sit on top of the bed. Usually coverlets will be folded at the foot of the bed for decoration or optional extra warmth.


How to Find Your Perfect Size

We found that some will identify quilts as “bedspreads” or “coverlets” depending if the quilt will reach to the floor or not. With the varying sizes of mattress thickness and bed frame height, each quilt will fit differently on each bed.

Pro tip: Check the size of your current bed cover and compare the dimensions to the item you're considering to buy. -No need to bring out the measuring tape!
