  • Bring luxury into your bedroom with Cultiver’s Linen Duvet Cover Set.
  • Thanks to this linen duvet cover and matching pillow cases, I’ve never had a cozier comforter or a more elegant bedroom.
  • While the price tag is a bit hefty, it’s money supremely well spent – these duvet cover sets are luxurious, durable, and most importantly, comfortable.

The easiest way to dress up your bedroom? A new duvet cover, of course.

In much the same way that a new jacket can add a new spring in your step in even the coldest of winters, a duvet cover (which really, is just a jacket for your comforter) can do wonders for even the bleakest of rooms. And when it comes to finding the perfect duvet cover, you’ll want to strongly consider one from Cultiver. I didn’t know what was missing in my bedroom until I found the company’s Linen Duvet Cover Set, and now that I’ve found it, I’m constantly wondering how I can replace everything else in my life with linen.

I’ve made my way through plenty of duvet covers in my ongoing quest to elevate the aesthetic of my bedroom.

Unfortunately, I’ve often had to choose between form and function in selecting my not-quite-ideal cover. There are the options that boast attractive patterns or elegant colours, but are less than comfortable as a result of their polyester construction. Then, there are those that are luxurious to the touch, but result in my duvet bunching oddly at various corners, which gives way to a particularly lumpy looking bed (a look that I’ve never fully understood). But with the Cultiver set, none of these issues came to pass.

First off, Cultiver’s duvet covers fit, and they fit well. Simply insert your existing comforter into Cultiver’s waiting arms, button the simple, yet elegant Mother of Pearl button closures, and from there, you’ll have a sleek, sophisticated bedspread. While linen can look a bit rumpled and disheveled if handled incorrectly, I haven’t found this to be the case with my Cultiver set. Instead, the material drapes attractively, covering the entirety of your bed and hanging an appropriate length along the sides (without looking wrinkled).

But beyond fit, what really sets linen duvet covers apart must be their superior comfort.

Though I’ve never been one to sleep directly on top of or beneath my duvet (can you really say that you’re an adult if there’s not a flat sheet on your bed?), having the Cultiver cover has really begun to tempt me. Not only is the linen wonderfully soft, but it’s also particularly breathable. Rather than sweating my way through the night, practically suffocated by a too-heavy comforter and a stuffy cover, this linen option allows for airflow. It’s cosy, but it won’t cramp your cool sleeping style either.

All of Cultiver’s linen duvet covers are made from 100% linen woven from European flax, and are pre-washed for that aforementioned softness. What’s more, these linen covers are also surprisingly durable. Despite having gone through the wash a couple times already, my cover hasn’t suffered from any fraying or loose threads.

In addition to the duvet cover itself, Cultiver’s duvet set comes with two matching pillowcases, which are every bit as comfortable as the cover itself. And while these pillow cases could certainly be used for your decorative throw pillows, I’ve enjoyed rubbing my face against the linen throughout the night. If you’d rather get pillowcases that accent your chosen duvet cover colour, you can do so as well by building your own set – in this case, you can mix and match patterns and colours and define your bedroom look from start to finish.

As lovely as this linen set is, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the rather hefty price tag. The Linen Duvet Cover Sets will set you back at least $US220 (the price for a twin). It’s money well spent, but all the same, it’s quite a bit of money for naught more than a cover.

Cultiver offers these covers in 17 colours and patterns. The Ice, an extremely light blue, is a personal favourite of mine, but it’s hard to imagine going wrong with any of the company’s options.
