There’s a reason why you hear people describe something luxuriously soft and cozy as “soft as velvet”. Velvet sets the softness standard, and what better way to usher in the chilly months of winter than in high style? Cooler weather begs for comfy bedding, and since you’ll be spending more time at home these days clocking zzz’s, it might be time to invest in some quality velvet bedding. Plus, velvet bedding tends to have a heavier weight than its cotton and linen counterparts, so it’s a perfect material for the fall and winter. Here are 10 options to keep top of mind, from cozy quilts to cute shams.
