In the room where comfort is of the utmost importance, sacrificing any shred of it for any reason is, understandably, a tough call. But thanks to a rapidly widening variety of luxe-organic linen providers and high-design sustainable furnituremakers, going green no longer means giving up tranquillity in your most sacred of sleep spaces. For bedding, there’s Boll & Branch or Coyuchi, each indistinguishable (some might even argue, better) from its traditional, nonorganic peers in comfort and style. For mattresses, there’s Keetsa, a company that has made a name for itself through its radical eco-offerings. And for accessories, there’s the ever-appealing ABC Home, which reliably stocks organic and sustainably produced goods from the world’s most talented craftspeople. Here, we’ve gathered everything you need — from the plushest mattress to the softest rug — to give your bedroom an eco-friendly update without losing a bit of sleep (or style).

You might never get out of bed again once you've slipped between Boll & Branch's hemmed sheet set. Made of pure organic cotton and available in a variety of serene hues (ivory is shown here), these linens are perfect for luxuriating night and day; from $200.

Rest easy with the Company Store’s organic down pillow, an organic cotton shell filled with premium European down. Manufactured in Wisconsin, the pillows meet rigorous Oeko-Tex standards. They’re available in four densities — soft, medium, firm, and extra-firm — and come in white or natural hues; from $89.

Know what’s in your mattress? Keetsa does. A tried-and-true purveyor of eco-friendly mattresses, the company offers full transparency into the composition of its offerings. For those who favor a softer mattress, the Keetsa Pillow Plus is a fine option, filled with the brand’s signature BioFoam and covered in 100 percent organic cotton; from $787.

Every great bed needs a great throw. For one that’s both sumptuous and sustainable, try Sefte’s Maya bouclé throw. Made from organic baby alpaca and colored with all-natural dyes, the throw comes in cream, oatmeal, and charcoal (shown) and is available at ABC Home; $421.

Consider pairing Coyuchi’s 100 percent organic cotton comforter ($248) with the company’s subtly patterned lattice stripe duvet cover ($137), available in eucalyptus (shown) or mid gray.
