One of our favourite bedtime storeys: The bedspread. A cousin of the coverlet, bedspreads come from the family of single layer bedding, making them ideal for summer use or layered with blankets and throws when the weather gets chilly. Bedspreads extend all the way down to the floor, and usually over the pillows too, giving your bed a touch of time-honoured romance; period homes are no stranger to this style bedding. Crafted from finely spun, 330-thread-count cotton, this set – complete with a bedspread and two shams – features a basket weave matelassé design. Better yet, it’s machine washable; tumble dry when the wash is over.
