Matelasse (mat-la-SAY) bedding refers to either a weaving or stitching technique that will yield a pattern that appears quilted or padded. Matelasse bedding may be in any color achieved by hand, using a machine or in the case of woven pieces, on a jacquard loom. It is meant to mimic the style of the hand-stitched bedding made originating in Marseilles, France. Matelasse is often characteristically a solid color bedding. However a matelasse stitch can also appear on many of today’s colorful florals and modern cotton bedding.
Our selection of solid color bedding includes many of these. Solid color bedding is one of the most versatile additions you can make to your bedroom. Solid color bedding will add a significant pop to your bedding or accent existing pieces with style. You might think that using a single solid color in your bedding scheme is boring, but an entire room decorated in a single solid color can create a monochromatic bedding masterpiece. Most people use it sparingly in their bedding to simply embellish a theme.
