Why everyone needs two duvets on the bed

Welcome to At Home with T&C, a monthly round-up of the new design and home decor items our style and home decor writer is excited to share (and buy!) with you right now.

A few years ago, T&C published one of our most controversial articles in recent memory: “It’s time to say goodbye to Top Sheets for good.” Comments flew back and forth on social media, with some defending the classic layers and others defending them dismissed with a wave of the hand. As for me? Reader, I was appalled.

When it comes to bed, uh beddingI’m a big believer in variety: a full set of linens, a blanket (winter only), a light quilt, and no fewer than two duvets adorn my mattress.

If the demand for two duvets makes you pause, I have a question: do you share a bed? Because if so, then listen to me, two comforters are the only way to marital bliss. With two duvets, there’s no midnight tug-of-war, no waking up at 4am without a blanket, no “sleeping hot” or “sleeping cold,” just sleeping. I have my side and he has his; We can cocoon and bundle our duvets at will without having to consult the other. To make the bed, one comforter is placed on top of the sheets and the other folded in thirds at the end. At night we separate them out again.

Of course, I’m not the only person who stumbles across the two duvet combo. It is a common practice in Scandinavia and Germany, countries of exceptional design solutions. In fact, rumor has it that British designer Sir Terence Conran popularized the duvet in Britain after sharing a bed with a pretty Swedish girl in the 1950s. Think of the possibilities, each of you can have a comforter of your preferred weight and warmth without waking the other up if you tend to toss and turn. Thread count aside, the real luxury in bed is an undisturbed night’s sleep.

Below are some of my favorite comforters, blankets and sheets to create your own personal twin comforter cocoon.
