Waverly bedding is well known for classic bedding styles as well as other decorative home furnishings. Bedding can be coordinated with matching wall coverings, window treatments and other decorative accessories.

About Waverly

The Waverly company has been around for decades. According to the Waverly website, the company was founded in the early 1920s by a European fabric company known as F. Schumacher & Co.

An American designer by the name of Cy Clark developed eight patterns for the first collection of bedding and decor offered to consumers by Waverly. The company's success started there and by 1939, Waverly began adding coordinating wallpaper patterns.

By the early 1950s, the Waverly brand had developed a signature look that included their classic floral and stripped patterns. This company has shown great success in bringing their vision of affordable, stylish home decor to middle class households.

Waverly products are carried by thousands of retailers and interior designers. Look for Waverly brands at your favorite home furnishings stores such as Waverly Home, Waverly Home Classics, Waverly Baby, and Waverly Sun and Shade.

Waverly Bedding Styles

Waverly bedding is sold in sets that include a comforter, shams and bed skirt. Each bed skirt has a 15 inch drop. Extra accessories that you can purchase separately include decorative pillows, euro shams, table covers, valances, and draperies. These accessories come in matching or coordinating prints.

Waverly comforter sets come in the following sizes:

  • Twin: 68 x 90 inches
  • Full: 81 x 90 inches
  • Queen: 92 x 96 inches
  • King: 110 x 96 inches

Each set comes with standard size pillow shams, 20 x 26 inches, except for the king size set, which includes shams that measure 20 x 36 inches.

Most Waverly comforters have large floral prints on brightly colored backgrounds. The floral prints are often embellished with striped, plaid or paisley accents. Waverly has vintage patterns with warm tones and a nostalgic appearance. Waverly bedding and decor feature natural and traditional elements with modern, bold patterns. This gives the decor a transitional look that combines contemporary and traditional styles.
