Dream away under luxurious, hotel-quality duvets
We spend about a third of our lives dreaming under a duvet. What could be nicer than crawling under a heavenly warm duvet in the evening? For a comfortable night's sleep you need more than just a good mattress. DOUXE has developed a luxury hotel collection of duvets so that you can experience the luxury of a hotel bed at home.
What are the advantages of hotel quality duvets?
Sleep well under the hotel collection of DOUXE duvets. This collection of luxury hotel quality was specially developed for DOUXE and is produced in Austria. All duvets are made of high-quality materials to ensure the ultimate hotel experience. Varying in fillings and made from different materials, there is something for everyone. Experience a luxurious hotel bed in your own bedroom with the first-class duvets from DOUXE.
What is a duvet made of?
Our hotel duvets are made of down and feathers, which provide good insulation, ventilation and temperature regulation. But DOUXE also offers durable anti-allergy duvets of top quality with synthetic microfibres.
100% down: the DOUXE Prestige duvet is the ultimate in luxury and comfort for all year round. The supple goose down duvet is super-soft and very light thanks to its 100% down, but at the same time insulates well and is therefore wonderfully warm. The downproof ticking with luxury cotton batiste feels silky soft against the skin. The Prestige Duvet is available in an all-year and winter version.
90% down and 10% feathers: the DOUXE Exclusive duvet is a lightweight duvet with above-average quality. The filling consists of 90% goose down which makes for a lightweight duvet with good insulation. The 10% feathers make the duvet a little heavier than the Prestige duvet. Because of the 10% feathers there is a little more air in the compartments and therefore the Exclusive duvet feels cooler than the Prestige duvet. The cover is made of 100% soft (downproof) cotton.
70% feathers and 30% down: With a ratio of 70% feathers to 30% down, the higher percentage of feathers ensures a weighty and full duvet. At the same time, a higher percentage of feathers makes the duvet less insulating and therefore cooler to the touch. The percentage of down ensures that the duvet insulates sufficiently for comfortable warmth at night. Thanks to a perfect ratio of both down and feathers, this is a generously filled Original All Year, Original All Year Plus or Mainport duvet, perfect for a good night's sleep.
100% synthetic microfibres: The Original Pulitzer Duvet is the optimal synthetic version of a real down duvet. The microfibres are processed as separate small particles in separate compartments, which gives the duvet a luxurious look. This duvet offers extremely comfortable sleeping comfort. The synthetic duvet from the Okura Hotel and Hotel Bilderberg is also a wonderful duvet. With these duvets, the synthetic fibre is stitched along with the ticking so it feels less fluffy. These duvets with 100% cotton ticking are easy to maintain and are very suitable as anti-allergy bedding.
Which duvet suits me best?
Which duvet suits you best depends on your personal preferences. Is it often warm or cold in your bedroom? Do you easily get cold at night or do you often get very warm? The weight of the duvet is also an important part of the selection process.
The duvet filling plays a major role in making the right choice. The higher the percentage of down in the duvet, the warmer and lighter it is. The more feathers, the cooler but heavier your duvet will feel.
Do you feel cold quickly at night? Then a duvet with a high percentage of down or a winter variant will suit you. For a lightweight but warm duvet, the Original down duvet is the perfect choice. If you prefer a heavier duvet, then the Exclusive duvet in the winter version is very suitable.
Do you feel warm quickly? Then choose the Exclusive All Year duvet if you want a lightweight duvet. A heavier duvet which really hugs you but still feels cool is the All Year Original duvet. For warm summer nights, we recommend an Original or Exclusive Summer duvet. The durable down and feather filling and the 100% cotton ticking (down-proof) ensure excellent ventilation. The perfect alternative to a sheet in combination with a blanket during the sultry summer nights.
What do I need to consider when buying a duvet?
What can you take into account when looking for a new duvet?
Heat and moisture regulation: do you feel hot or cold more often at night?
Duvet weight: do you prefer a light or slightly heavier duvet?
Duvet filling: do you prefer down, a down and feather combination or do you prefer to sleep under an imitation down variant such as a duvet with synthetic micro-fibres?
Durability: The natural filling of DOUXE down duvets retains its resilience well. DOUXE uses Class 1 feathers and down. Because of the good ventilation, a natural feather-down filling lasts a very long time. DOUXE also offers several synthetic duvets with an Ecodown filling, such as the duvet from Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam, made of 100% micro-fibre that feels like down.
Allergy-free: are you allergic to house dust mites? Research has shown that house dust mites do not like to live in down and feather bedding. Down duvets are highly ventilating and temperature-regulating. Moisture and perspiration are quickly removed and so the duvet remains relatively dry. It is therefore a very unfavourable habitat for house dust mite, which is dependent on moisture and sultry conditions. The down-proof ticking is an impenetrable barrier for mites, making the down duvets from DOUXE allergy-friendly.
Hotel experience: Have you slept in a specific hotel and want exactly the same sleeping comfort? That's possible, at DOUXE we offer you the same duvets that are used in the Pulitzer Amsterdam, Hotel Okura, Bilderberg and Hotel Mainport.
Is a down duvet suitable for someone allergic to house dust mites?
Yes. Duvets with a down and/or feather filling are suitable for people who are allergic to house dust mites. Bedding filled with feathers and down has a very favourable warmth/climate ratio for people; it ensures faster warming during sleep, and quicker removal of moisture when airing. This makes it a very unfavourable environment for house dust mites, which are dependent on moisture.
The feather- and down-proof high-quality ticking also offers extra protection, preventing the penetration of mites. Even if you are allergic to house dust mites or asthmatic, you do not have to forego the natural sleep comfort offered by down and feathers.
All DOUXE duvets have the NOMITE seal. You can find it on the relevant pages under Certification. The NOMITE label indicates that the product is suitable for house dust mite allergy sufferers.
What size duvet do you need?
Do you need a new duvet and don't know what size is best for you? Then the size of the mattress is a good starting point. The dimensions of your duvet will always be slightly larger than those of your mattress. This is because the duvet will hang over the edge of your bed at both the sides and the bottom. For an average single bed, a duvet is 140 cm wide and 220 cm long.
- For an average double bed a duvet is 240 cm wide x 220 cm long
- Is your mattress 160 cm or 180 cm wide? Then choose a 240 cm wide duvet
- Is your mattress 200 cm wide? Then choose a duvet of 260 cm wide
- Does your mattress have a length of 200, 210 or 220 cm? Then choose a duvet with a length of 220 cm
Luxury hotel duvets in your own bedroom
For that ultra-soft, truly heavenly feeling of a hotel bed, a duvet in extra soft down (or an alternative to down) is an absolute must. Duvets made from 100% down are the lightest and most airy but they will keep you comfortable and warm.
DOUXE duvets are produced in Austria in a family factory in the Alps. Due to the favourable geographical location, the down and feathers are washed with fresh water from our own spring. The welfare of our customers, producers and animals is of paramount importance to us. Our seals of approval guarantee that DOUXE only uses down and feathers that have been produced in an animal-friendly way. Furthermore, our products are suitable for people with a house dust mite allergy.
