Unlike overfilled comforters or duvets with a decorative duvet cover, coverlets are lightweight bedspreads that can come quilted or woven. The ideal bedding for warm summer nights or as an accent piece atop a thicker bedding ensemble, the coverlet is similar to a quilt or throw in function, and is generally used to add color or comfort to a bedding collection rather than replace a comforter or duvet.
Add Color, Comfort and Warmth with a Coverlet along with your Bedding Collection.
Derived from two French words which together mean “to cover” and “bed” the versatile coverlet can find itself acting like a throw during cold winter months on a sofa or at foot of a bed. Since coverlets come in varying sizes and thicknesses, and in a quilted or woven fashion, it is important to compare coverlets before selecting the perfect one. Typically, woven coverlets are decorative, made from wool, linen, silk and cotton. Quilted coverlets include a thin layer of batting inside to add warmth, making them a functional bedding addition. Both types of coverlets use a cotton backing that is not reversible – similar to a thin bedspread – and come without the 19″ pillow tuck that regular bedspreads feature. For a modern or rustic appearance in your bedroom, use a brand new or antique coverlet may unlock the finishing touch.
