By: Danielle Clockel

When the weather heats up, the covers come off. Who wants a heavy down comforter smothering them in the thick of summer? That’s when lightweight summer quilts have their time to shine! Here’s a roundup of five modern quilts that we’d love to drape across some fresh linens.

Patchwork is less overwhelming and more intriguing when it’s monochromatic, and the mix of textures and patterns piques visual interest.

From the color palette to the large geometric sections, this quilt is like a cool Scandinavian breeze with just enough contrast provided by the giant dark triangle.

When you have a quilt as gorgeous as this one, why wouldn’t you display it as art?  This dramatic graphic quilt is a statement-maker in any room.

This is just pure happiness. The bright, fun colors arranged in a sophisticated graphic composition makes this quilt perfect for any age of snuggler.

Light, bright, and Mondrian-esque. What’s not to love?

Quilts have a rich history of function as well as aesthetics, so we say do both! With beautiful options like these, they’re a striking display anywhere in your home when not in use.
