Ask Casa: A Cheap Quilt Alternative?

Hi Casa,

I was hoping you could help me with my dilemma. I fell in love with this quilt from Urban Outfitters. I'm a college student, and in a month I'm moving into a house that I'm renting myself, so money is really tight and I was hoping to find something inexpensive. I found this amazing quilt for $79, but by the time I really decided to get it, they ran out of it in twin size. My room is painted a light teal color, and I love the paisley pattern of this quilt. Do you know of any similar quilts or duvets that are out there, or at least a store where I could find similar style quilts without breaking the bank?


Curious as to what I discovered? Check out what I've found for Rmur.
Hi Rmur,

I found some very pretty patterned bedding on ShopStyle, including some paisley options. The great thing about your request is that, given your requirements of a twin-size comforter, you'll already be paying less money for your bedding than those who need a queen-size comforter.

As for cheap bedding sources, I'd check out Target, especially the store's online selection. I found some very cool, cheap finds with high thread counts, like this DwellStudio for Target Birds Damask Comforter Set ($79.99), which earned high marks from previous buyers. This Maxine Paisley Print Duvet Set ($39.99) is quite the steal as well, and satisfies your paisley pattern requirements!


Let me know if any of the Target finds catch your eye, or if the other patterned duvet sets and comforters I rounded up satisfy your bedding needs.

Spring for the one you love in the full/queen size and cut it down to the size for a twin, using the extra to make some pretty matching throw pillows or shams--i did that with a quilt from anthropologie when the same thing happened to me. granted you arent saving money, but you are getting more bang for your buck

Rmur- I have tons of luck @ Costplus World Market....think Pier 1, but with more options and a little cheaper! If you can't afford a quilt or a duvet, try throwing one of those tapestries over your bed (i know UO has had some on their website). you could by a couple and just keep changing the look.

I forgot, though, make sure you write any number's down as well as a good description of the product for Urban so they can make sure they are calling about the exact same product!

Ooh, love that comforter, sosojuju! To Rmur: I work at Anthropologie, same company as Urban, and if you go into an Urban store near you and ask them to look in their systems to see if they have any more of that twin-sized comforter you want, they can see if they have any more in any store locations across the country. Just because it's sold out online doesn't mean it's sold out in stores, you know? Then they can ship it to you for free or for very cheap! Worth a shot if you don't like any of Fab's options.
