Your bed is only going to be as comfortable as the linens and blankets you have on top, which includes your comforter. Comforters are thick, soft, quilted blankets with insulating filling inside that make them perfect for snuggling down inside. They are available in plain white, solid colors, or in colorful prints. Comforters are designed to be tossed on top of the bed straight out of the box and they don't require a cover to keep them protected or make them pretty the way a duvet does.
