509408cbd9127e2f21000568. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop DwellStudio
A leader in modern textile design, they're a consistent high-quality source for bedding (and if you're on a budget, they have a less expensive line at Target). Every year, they introduce a few new collections and update old lines in new colors.

Best Budget Bedding Stores

5093f201dbd0cb03420004a8. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop Macy's
They carry several affordable lines — including collections from Calvin Klein, Martha Stewart, and Ralph Lauren — and their generic Hotel and Style&Co Collections aren't bad either. They frequently have sales on bedding, and you can score good deals both online and in stores.

5093f208dbd0cb03350004c5. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop Crate and Barrel Outlet
Their online outlet has a rotating selection of deeply discounted bedding, and you can sometimes find Marimekko duvets and shams on clearance. They also have a brick and mortar outlet in Chicago, where marked down bedding is a frequent find.

50940a0cd9127e2f060005ab. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop The Company Store
They could easily go under the "mid-range" section, but because of their frequent sales and deals, we've included this bedding catalog in the budget list. They're a good place to shop for solid sheet sets and discounted basics online.

5093f20ad9127e2f2600046e. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop Bed Bath & Beyond
While not everything there is great, their pure beech sheets are an Apartment Therapy best product. Derived from the Beechwood tree in Europe, they come in Jersey Knit and Sateen styles, both affordably priced.

5093f20adbd0cb034f0004e9. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop Designer Linens Outlet
They have some ugly stuff, but they also carry discounted designer goods from brands like Amy Butler and Nautica. Their inventory is frequently updated, and if you keep checking back, you'll eventually stumble across a great find on deep discount.

5093f20bd9127e2f2600046f. w.94 h.71 s.centercrop Target
They're everywhere, they're affordable, and they've revolutionized the concept of designer labels for the masses. We like the DwellStudio line for bright colors and patterns, Thomas O'Brien for modern masculine style, and the Shabby Chic collection for traditionalists.
