These imports from Europe have become adapted bed mates by many American families. When these flat bed covers first arrived in the U.S. they were stuffed with feathers or down feathers from geese or ducks. Down feathers are the soft feathers under the top feathers nearest to the skin. Birds and fowls survive the harshest weathers with only their feather coverings.
A duvet, known in many countries as a quilt, is a thin yielding blanket with a soft filling inside. It's been there from bygone days serving the purpose of either a bed softener or a blanket in many parts of the world. Often there is confusion over the word 'duvet' because in the United States Duvet is referred to as the quilt cover as opposed to the quilt itself. Duvet-covers are used just like a pillow cover, to protect the duvet and keep it clean.
What is advantageous, convenient and fascinating with a this bed linen is that it allows you to keep the same look in your bedroom in winter and in summer. When it gets cold, you simply change a lighter weight duvet for a heavier one and when the weather gets warm, you can insert inside the lighter one in place of a heavier duvet. However, if you want to have a constant change in the look of your room, you can have one duvet and multiple duvet cover sets with different patterns, colors and textures.
Like many American men I must confess that the first time I heard someone refer to a Duvet or Duvet Cover, I had no idea what they could be referring to. In fact I think it's probably been less than two years ago that I first heard of a Duvet and I'm in my thirties. So, I suspect that I'm not the only person that hadn't heard of a duvet or a duvet cover or would even have an idea of where one might be found. For those of you that don't know, it's related to bedding. Coming from a tradition where we had sheets, blankets, quilts, covers and spreads I really was somewhat surprised when I started reading about the idea of a duvet or duvet cover.
As they are available in many sizes you can make your choice depending on the type of duvet that you have. The three main types of duvet covers are the twin, full, queen and the king. When you go to the market or if you are purchasing them online, make sure that you know the size of your bed. This is because you cannot buy a king size duvet cover for a small bed. On a similar note, you cannot buy a small one for a big bed. This will make your bed to look funny and not as elegant as you want it look.
Duvets are great to use because the fact you can change the color, the fabric, and the color whenever you want. So depending on the season, you can have the color that works for you. Not to mention, it also works if you change the look of your decorative pillows or even your whole room.
