Default Duvet

Anyone found a good place to buy nice affordable duvets. The fall chill is fast approaching here and I'm on the lookout for some. I'm so done with this sheet, quilt, blanket, thing they do here.

Definitely IKEA--good prices and the quality is okay too. They also have very nice quilt covers.

Depends where in NoVa you are, but there's an Ikea in Woodbridge, and one in
College Park, MD, just off the DC beltway.

I'm in Warrenton so about 40 mins from Woodbridge. I may well take a little drive with my babies there next week and check it out. Overstock is another good idea. I think there is also a Kohls in Woodbridge too. I don't get out much as I have my hands full ... but I need to get my duvets this year. thanks for all the responses they are a great help.

Have a look on line at Ikea. I like their duvets, we used them in the UK, too.

Thanks Ray, I will make a note of that when I shop for them. I guess going for 85% down puts the price up but will make them nice an cosy and hopefully last longer!

yes, best for the stitching to be in squares so it doesn't keep falling to one end

The duvet we got last year at Home Goods is actually too heavy for anything but winter use. It's wonderful in the winter, but a bit too much for summer, spring or fall.
