There’s something so dreamy about a deliberately disheveled bed. Ruffled sheets and fluffy pillows positioned just so can still look put together. This look is easily achieved with naturally relaxed materials, such as our Vintage Washed Linen.

Made from 100% French flax linen, these luxe quilt covers and sheets are pre-washed for a delightfully worn-in feel that grows softer with every wash. Forget ironing, flattening or pressing, this fabric truly shines when left au naturel.

Think creased rather than crisp bed linen to create the playful and personal look of a lived-in bed. The slightly wrinkled texture and snuggly soft feel of our Stonewashed Cotton will really bring this intentionally messy look to life.

Our tip is to size up your flat sheet and leave it untucked, allowing the fabric to fall softly over each side of your bed. Finally, layer with a fluffy quilt and at least four standard pillows – the extra height will help make your unmade covers look a little more considered.

Those who struggle to make the bed in the morning will truly appreciate the naturally wrinkled look of bamboo linen sheets and quilt covers. Lightweight and airy, the inherent casualness of this fabric makes it easy to create the ‘I woke up like this’ aesthetic because it’s designed to be left just as it is.

Throw back your quilt, leave your sheets to cascade over the edges, pile on the pillows and you’re good to go. Did we mention our bamboo bed linen is also breathable and hypoallergenic? Bonus!
