I was a little hesitant to buy this as I was unsure if the colors would be the same as the picture. I was so nicely surprised when this arrived. It looks just like the picture and has an expensive and antique look to it. I purchased it to cover my couch and it looks wonderful. I'm so happy with this purchase.
I bought this throw and love it so much that I have now ordered the Quilt set that goes with this throw. It is beautiful! If you like warm colors and a bolder look than the usual chic shabby look, this would be perfect. It is also very smooth and soft. I did have to let it air out for an evening - there was a fabric type of scent that was strong - but after that and ever since it's been perfect! Can't wait for my Quilt set to arrive!
I purchased the quilt to go with this throw. I really love it. It 's not too heavy but it keeps us warm. It's a good quality and I can use many colors to decorate my bedroom with it. Also, I had an opportunity to deal with the Overstock service representative. She was very helpful and courteous. I love Overstock! Keep up the good work!
Like the last reviewer, I purchased this throw to use as a curtain. I have a large sun room and wanted to block some of the cold coming in through the winter months. Not finding any thermal curtains that I liked well enough to invest the $$ into I decided to look for just this size quilt. I actually purchased a dozen of these and was thrilled that the description stated "can be used s a shade or curtain panel with the rod pocket sewn on the back". I absolutely took that statement to mean that the item could be hung-that there was a rod pocket on the back. There isn't. "With the rod pocket sewn on back" to me means that it's there and I could immediately hang it. I think Overstock should either remove that statement or clarify it so that the buyer knows they have to actually sew the rod pocket on before they can use it to hang. So, when choosing between sewing the rod pocket on each of the dozen panels or using clip rings I chose to use clip rings because it is quickly getting very very cold here and I want to get the quilts up as curtains. I am actually hanging them this weekend and will come back to comment on how well this idea actually works out. I figured if I was investing money on insulating curtains for a room that I spend time in during the long winter months here in Wisconsin I may as well use something pretty and nice to look at. This throw has every color you could imagine (save for black and orange). It would make a wonderful tablecloth too, washes up delicate and drys on low perfectly, lays nice and flat and not too thick to use on tabletop. I'm seriously thinking of getting this quilt for my bedroom....hum....might just be back!
I got one for me and loved it so much I got 4 more as gifts. Everyone loves them and uses them daily while watching TV or reading. I even have the king size quilt on my bed. My husband even loves it. It is warm but not heavy. I would recommend this item to anyone.
I use this throw all the time. It picks up the colors of most of my furniture, area rugs and walls. It's been put into the washer/dryer numerous times and really holds up. Yes, I would definitely purchase this throw again. Right now, it's on my couch, and my dog is sleeping on top of it. So,you know that it gets used a lot!
This quilted throw is rather thin, so don't expect it to be very warm. It is cotton as advertised, but the "rose" background and trim are actually a putrid mustard yellow color, not what I expected. The dark green and maroon squares really stand out and eclipse the light blue and green... not quite what I had in mind.
I ordered 2 of these throws to use on my covered front porch. They arrived quickly and the quality was even better than I was expecting. Just a note, there are splashes of bright purple in one of the patterns, that I feel takes away from the look. If you can live with that, it's a great choice.
