Quilted textures are one of fall’s biggest fashion trends — and there are so many ways to incorporate the textile into your home. From the more obvious blankets and bedding to subtle accents like placemats, coasters, and throw pillows, you can easily style the look in a way that feels chic, timeless, and unique to your personal design aesthetic.

I especially love quilts because they can transcend specific styles and work well with virtually any decor, depending on colors, prints, and patterns. That’s why I scoured the internet for the best quilted home decor items, from brands like Urban Outfitters, Etsy, Pottery Barn, Quince, and Food52. Get inspired by one of this season’s most anticipated fashion trends, and spruce up your space with these classic pieces (that could pass as family heirlooms!).

Pottery Barn
was $69.50

If you don’t want to commit to a quilted bed set, this reversible sham from Pottery Barn makes the best throw pillow alternative. The cover comes in three sizes — standard, euro, and king — with a vintage-inspired star quilt pattern that feels rustic and slightly bohemian. Handmade from 100 percent cotton, the sham also has an ultra-soft feel with a cozy, lived-in look.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on a stunning linen quilt. Case in point: This European linen cotton stitch quilt from Quince costs nearly half as much as comparable retailers, yet has the same quality and on-trend style. The OEKO-TEX® certified quilted blanket comes in twin, full/queen, and king/California king sizes. It’s also constructed from 55 percent linen blended with 45 percent cotton for a soft-to-the-touch feel that’s both breathable and temperature-regulating.

Pottery Barn

Table runners are an excellent way to bring this decor trend into your home in a more subtle way. I love the Pottery Barn heirloom quilted table runner for its classic quilted feel and versatile white coloring. An excellent layering piece for your tablescape, it’s inspired by French boutis quilts, giving it a vintage appearance. Plus, it’s machine-washable and easy to care for.

If you’re looking for unique pieces, Etsy has you covered with handmade quilted styles galore, like this set of six floral placemats. Because of the patchwork style, each design is one-of-a-kind, yet they’re still intended to work together for a whimsical, bohemian tabletop that feels cohesive and stylish.

Another fantastic quilted blanket option, the Buffy puffer blanket is inspired by the warmth of a quilted jacket. It’s eco-friendly, designed using a recycled polyester and eucalyptus-blend TENCEL™ lyocell shell with 100 percent recycled PET and BPA-free fill. Measuring at 70 by 50 inches, this Buffy blanket makes a gorgeous throw blanket, picnic blanket, or layering piece at the foot of the bed.

It’s not fall without pumpkins! If orange gourds aren’t your thing, though, these handmade quilted decorations from Jenny Penny Mercantile on Etsy are cut from vintage cutter quilts, then hand-stuffed and embellished. Each one is unique and can arguably stay out year-round as a cute cottagecore accent.

You can still have fun with this trend without making it too obvious of a decor choice, as seen via Food52’s gingham linen pot holders. They’re stylish, functional, and can double as a kitchen focal point without taking up a ton of space. These pot holders come in four beautiful colors, made from 100 percent linen for a luxe feel. Hang them from a hook on your oven or stash them away in a drawer — either way, you’ll get a ton of use out of them.

Furbish Studio

Coasters are another great way to work with this quilted decor on a smaller scale. Furbish’s Amelia coasters are one of my top picks because they come in 25 different colors and prints for a nice pop of color that matches your style. They’re practical, too, as the 100% cotton material absorbs moisture and protects tables from sweating drinks with ease.

Bring the quilted look into your furniture with this two-piece storage ottoman set from Homegoods. The set features two cylinder-shaped ottomans in varying heights, designed to act as a footstool or extra seating while also providing storage for small knickknacks.

Urban Outfitters

Elevate your tapestry with this quilted spin from Urban Outfitters, which boasts a stunning burnt orange hue and decorative tiger front and center. Its slightly puffy quilted design adds a nice tactile touch to any space, too, whether you’re shopping for a dorm room or fun corner of your bedroom.
