Tinkering with the idea of buying some bed linen online? I hear you. Even though Covid19 restrictions are easy (and I’m DYING to hit the stores), you can’t help but feel an online order is the safest bet.
But how do you know if you’re going to get quality? Nobody wants to get their bed linen order out of the packaging and realise it’s more ‘sandpaper’ than it is soft and soothing. I’m a delicate flower, after all, and my hands are dry enough from using mountains of sanitiser around the clock!
Fear not, decorating junkies! Today I’m going to take you through my top 10 best places to buy Australian bed linen online. These are all tried and tested brands that I’ve either used in my own home or have popped into client’s bedrooms. So rest assured, you’re in safe hands.
And given that winter is here, I reckon now is the perfect time to snap up something new. As if you needed a reason!
1. Lorraine Lea
It’s safe to say I’ve played with this bedding more than any other brand. I have it in my own home and I’ve styled it in many photo shoots in the past. In fact, this month you can go in the draw to win a quilt cover set from my friends at Lorraine Lea, who have been in business for over 30 years.
The designs from this glorious biz are always evolving, so there’s always a new release to drool over. And by buying this Australian bed linen online you’re supporting one of their independent stylists, who operate their own small businesses under the Lorraine Lea umbrella.
2. L&M Home
This is an Australian bed linen brand I always turn to when I’m furnishing client bedrooms because the products are so divine. Products from L&M Home feel luxurious but in a really effortless way, and the amount of accessories you can pair with the quilt cover sets allows you to create your own unique look.
The colours in the bedding collections are so wonderfully sophisticated and are definitely going to make your bedroom feel elevated. Just look at the black and white number above. Shut up and take my money!
3. Loom Living
I know everyone bangs on about linen when it comes to bedding materials, but Loom Living took a different approach. Having been in the biz for over 30 years ago, this local bedding brand is all about bamboo bedding, which has its own unique set of benefits.
Bamboo bedding is soft, doesn’t irritate the skin, and the bamboo can replenish itself within a year once harvested, making it a perfectly sustainable resource. Definitely worth considering this material when you’re going to buy Australian bed linen online.
4. AURA Home
Tobacco, Indian Teal, Khaki; trust me when I say the colour story in the Aura Home range is like no other. I’m so smitten with the effortless luxury this Aussie brand evokes; something they’ve been doing wonderfully since 2000.
Designed in Melbourne and inspired by founder Tracie Ellis’ love of travel, these bedding designs are rich, textured pieces that bring contemporary style and luxury to your boudoir. And they supply to The Block too, so you know they’re on-trend!
The team at KAS describe themselves as contemporary and forward-thinking, and they’re not wrong. I’m constantly impressed by the innovative and often unexpected designs coming out of this family business.
The pieces are always wonderfully inspired looks and often encourage you to think outside the box when it comes to your bed styling. They definitely have subdued designs, but I personally think KAS is at its best when it’s embracing its bolder side.
6. Kip & Co
If you want to buy Australian bed linen online that taps into that minimal, all-white vibe, avert your eyes, because Kip & Co is not for you! This Aussie brand is unapologetic in their use of bold colour and dynamic pattern, so they’re not for the faint hearted.
The two-sister and best mate trio started the bed linen biz in 2012 and it’s safe to say they’ve absolutely dominated the bedding landscape ever since.
7. Sage x Clare
When I first moved to Melbourne over five years ago I styled a campaign in the Sage x Clare studios, so this business has a special place in my heart. It’s not all nostalgia though; the products are freakin’ phenomenal, it’s a fact!
A trip to India many moons ago is what inspired hubby and wife duo Chris and Phoebe to launch the brand, and you can see that bold sense of adventure in all of the bed linen and accessories available on their website. The tassels on those cushions above are just beyond, don’t you think?
I had to include a staple in the mix. You know, a tried and true Australian bed linen brand that has stood the test of time and just keeps getting better. That’s Sheridan to a tee.
Established in 1967, Sheridan is known for considered designs that evoke an effortless elegance. There’s such a timelessness to their range that really appeals to me too; something wonderfully luxurious for all ages and genders. How chic is the midnight bedding above?
9. Pillow Talk
Just look at the front page of their website would you; I don’t need to tell you why this local bed linen brand is so phenomenal. They have loads of on-trend pieces that go way beyond bedding (hello mongolian lamb cushions), but the quilt cover sets are also worthy of individual recognition.
With over 40 years experience, Pillow Talk is all about comfort, so you can rest assured online bedding orders are packed with quality.
10. Linen House
This is another brand I turn to for client bedding, because the range is just so extensive and it’s gorgeous to look at and touch. Linen House is a Melbourne-based family business has been going strong for over 25 years. It might be the last on my list of best places to buy Australian bed linen online, but it’s by no means the least.
They also work with some top designers like Alex Perry, Collette Dinnigan and Marie Claire Paris, which is a pretty amazing point of difference.
That’s my list of 10 best places to buy Australian bed linen online. What are a few of yours? I’d love to know where you’re placing your online when you’re shopping the net. Is there a retailer I’ve missed here? Drop a comment and let me know.
