Bed-in-a-bag and comforter sets come in all the standard bed sizes and include a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, a comforter, one or two shams and two pillowcases. Some also come with a bed skirt, and some come with decorative pillows instead of pillow cases. Some include decorative pillows and an extra sham.
What is included in a sham set?
In the 1700's, specially made pillowcases were made to create decorative pillows with removable covers. These "false front" pillow covers became known as pillow shams! A sham is a decorative pillow case that transforms normal sized pillow fills into useful accessories for one's bedding set.
What is the use of a bed skirt?
A bed skirt or valance is a piece of decorative fabric that is placed between the mattress and the box spring of a bed. The purpose of a bed skirt is to give a stylish appearance to a bed without exposing the sides of the box spring or any space under the bed that may be used for storage.
