I did take a chance on this duvet even after ready the many reviews. I did return the set the next day for a couple of reasons. First was mostly the color Didn't work in the bedroom. It is a very thin duvet with hardy no weight to it. Yes the price was ok but really it should of been cheaper then it was. So it ended with it costing me $*** to send it back. It's a chance I took. Oh well.
This duvet cover is great. It looks very sleek and elegant and is of good quality. As soon as I laid mine out in my room I knew I would have to return it because of the color. In the picture the taupe looks to have some grey hues, but in person the color is definitely taupe (or a light tan). I was hoping for the grey hues, but it was really easy to return. Had the duvet cover not been the same color as my walls I would have kept it. Great value.
This duvet cover looked beautiful but It didn't fit my comforter and felt it was not going to hold up to a lot of laundering. Wish the smocking could be reinforced. I see in some reviews that it was used as a bedspread instead of a duvet cover. That would have solved my size issue but not the laundering issue. Another issue solved in another review was steaming took out the wrinkled look.
The Duvet is a little lighter in color than the picture...but a true cream color. I like the color! It is very light weight and thin, but with the duvet inside it...it looks great. I folded it over and have it at the end of my bed over a more luxurious silk duvet from ZGallerie. It is not as nice as the duvet I bought from ZGallerie...and the material is a little cheap. It has buttons to open the Duvet and put the Down inside. I heard from other reviews that the tufts come undone...but so far mine has held up the past several weeks. My expensive duvet from ZGallerie over the years even had tufts come undone...so that is to be expected at some point. For the price it is a great buy!
If you look in the picture, you will see that the European Shams have a design on them. What I received were plain, flat, white European Shams. No design. Nada. Nothing. Flat and plain. I couldn't send them back because I was having a party and needed them to complete my bedroom look. I guess I could have used them and then returned them but that's not what I do. This is the 2nd time I have ordered from Overstock where the item and the picture are so OFF. The last time it was a coffee table. Lost money on that too. I'm using the shams, they work, but they probably were not worth the price I paid.
Why buy a fancy high TC cotton covered down comforter if you are going to wrap it in polyester that doesn't breath and eliminates the benefits of down in the first place. The description of the fabric just says "woven". If it said polyester, I don't think they would sell many of these. Also, quality seemed very low for the price
The taupe duvet set is as pictured. It's beautifully designed, but like some other reviewers, I already have some of the twists coming undone on the pillow shams. The duvet is intact, it's only the shams. I will try to repair them, but it is a bit frustrating to have them coming out this early on. I will likely take the time to reinforce each twist on the duvet cover so I don't run into the same problem. For the price, it's worth it to me, and while I'm not excited about the extra work, it's a lovely set and I'll make the adjustment. Also, I have a cat that sleeps on the bed with us. I've noticed that her claws don't pull threads loose, as they did on my last comforter. I'd recommend this as cat-proof!
MANY complaints about this item: The color in person has this yucky, mauvey pink hue to it. It is also a super thin poly and looks nothing like the pictures. the pintucks don't even begin to create the same look as the picture. Very disappointed. So I wash the thing hoping it will perk up and look nice. Washed it on gentile and cold so that I don't damage it and all of the edged that had piping shrunk up in the most ridiculous way. Very poor construction. It was delivered yesterday and going right back today. FAIL.
The duvet looks amazing and is sleek and beautiful; however, the material is so slick that the comforter within the duvet doesn't stay put and there are no ties in the corners to make it stay put. There are entirely way too many button closures on the duvet as well, but I suppose that makes it easier for some people when sliding it onto their comforter. I find it more difficult personally...
I loved the color of this duvet and the construction is great. The tucks have held and I love the way this looks in my bedroom. Overall I think this is a good product for a good price. The only drawback for me is that the duvet cover is larger than my king size down comforter and the fit is a bit off. Thanks!
I read lots of reviews on this duvet cover after I ordered it. I was a bit worried about the quality of the product. Wow, was I surprised on how much I love this! Yes, it is thin, but it's a duvet cover not a comforter. I would reorder! Love it!
I have had this on my bed for 4 months. The color is exactly as is shown. The texture is soft and comfortable. I have washed it several times and it has held up rather well. I have quite enjoyed having it on my bed. However, two of the puckered stitches on one of the pillow shams have come undone. I will try to repair it, as I really do like the duvet set. While the stitching has come undone, I still like like this is a good value.
