Quilted, satin or patchwork bedspreads

The bedspread is a fine blanket that covers the entire bedding for a perfect finish to the bedroom decor. Plain or patterned, bedspreads come in a variety of styles and materials: crochet bedspreads for a retro, romantic feel, or imitation fur or satin bedspreads for a steamy ambience. A wide choice of colors for bed coverings and quilts, to match the curtains of your night-time rooms.

If you want to add a touch of comfort and elegant decoration to your bedding, there's nothing better than a pretty bedspread, quilt or boutis.

What's the difference between a boutis, a quilt and a bedspread?

A bedspread, a boutis and a quilt all serve to decorate and warm the bed, but although they look similar, their construction is quite different. The bedspread, the thinnest, is simply a large piece of fabric. Ideal for elegantly covering and protecting the bed, it can be made from a wide range of synthetic materials or characteristics such as linen or cotton.

Boutis is a type of blanket that originated in the south of France, particularly Marseille. Boutis is also made from a single layer of fabric, but unlike bedspreads, it's made from a quilted, embroidered fabric. With its Provencal allure, it's beautifully decorated and quilted for even greater comfort.

Finally, the quilt is the warmest of all. Made up of 3 layers: a top layer of quilted fabric, a middle layer of fleece or insulation and a bottom layer of fabric, it's absolutely comfortable. Placed on a bed or even on a sofa or armchair, it adds warmth and cosiness.

How to choose the right bedspread?

To choose the right bedspread, it's important to define its use. If you like to snuggle up in a warm, cozy bed on a cold winter's night, a quilt is ideal. It will provide plenty of warmth and make your bed even softer and more comfortable. If you simply want to add a touch of sophistication and color to your bedding, without making it warmer and cozier, opt for a bedspread instead. Finally, if you find your bedding a little lacking in comfort, opt for boutis, which will seduce you with its fleecy feel.

Finally, to choose the right bedspread, quilt or boutis, it's essential to choose one that matches the size of your bed. If you opt for a quilt, choose one the same size as your mattress, or just a little larger so as not to overload your bed. On the other hand, a bedspread or boutis is more comfortable if it's deliberately chosen to be larger than your bed. This way, your bedding will be well protected and pleasantly warm.

What should I choose to match my interior style?

If your interior style is more minimalist, opt for a bed runner. Compact and practical, it won't take up much space on your mattress, but will give it a cosy feel. For more classic interiors, the vintage charm of boutis will give your bedroom a country feel. Finally, the main advantage of bedspreads is that they adapt to all styles. All you have to do to match it to your interior is juggle materials and patterns.

When it comes to materials, the characteristic look of linen will appeal to Scandinavian style fans, while the nobility of velvet is ideal for making your interior even more luxurious. Finally, cotton has the advantage of being available in a wide range of colors to match your decor. Tartan for a sobritish style, toile de Jouy for even more romance or geometric patterns, there's something for every taste.
