After reading the majority of reviews, I was convinced this would be a great addition to my guest room. Boy, was I ever wrong. Obviously, I didn't receive the same product as those who were impressed with this duvet cover, because I was thoroughly disappointed. The fabric was similar to that of a sheet with an extremely low thread count. In no way does it have the look of a duvet cover - it looks like a sheet on top of your bed. And while the image on the web site displays somewhat of a shiny/satin-like texture, it was very dull and rough. Unfortunately, I returned the product the next day after receiving. Now... I have ordered from overstock.com in the past and will continue to do so, but if you're on-the-fence-in-the-least , consider yourself warned -- and keep on shopping. Overstock has several other great items from which to choose!
I was disappointed when I pulled it out of the box. The fabric is soft, but looks a little cheap. The stitching is large and cheap-looking on the edges. The scale of the pattern is too large for my taste. So large, in fact, that it makes the duvet appear more masculine in person. Online, it looked feminine and flowery. In person, it looks more modern and more like giant coral. The queen size was also too small for my queen bed. It didn't cover the sides.
This duvet looks great. The fabric is a little burlap-y, but still comfortable to sleep under, especially if you usually end up too warm. The real problem for me is that because the button closure is not on the end, it's about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the duvet and the buttons are widely spaced apart, both me and my husband get our feet caught in it. You go to turn over in the night and you get trapped toes. Even though I love the way it looks, I have to get rid of it.
Duvet was just as described except a full/queen does not fit a queen bed very well. It was extremely short in width and a little short in length. Since this was for my daughter's bed and the bed is pushed against the wall on one side (and I already had a queen feather comforter) I kept it anyway. I figured the king would have swallowed my queen comforter.
I found this douvet on OS a few weeks back and LOVED the way it looked online. I was concerned it wasnt going to POP like it did online, but as soon as I got it, it looked fabulous ... just the way it does online. It is a very comfortable material and for such a great price!! The only downside, is because the top side is all black, it shows every piece of white lint that is flying in the air as well as dog hair that clings to the surface. Very happy with this purchase .... it was exactly what i was looking for!
I love this duvet cover. It's perfect. Contemporary - and the quality is very good. There are only 2 cons: first, if you have a pet. The black shows all lint and pet hair immediately! The cotton seems to also attract lint, etc. The second con is that the material is not the highest quality. It's OK - maybe like 250 threadcount sheets. But for the price - and the great look - I do love this duvet cover set.
This is a really different and pretty duvet set. But I just put it on a queen bed and it barely comes down the sides of the bed. If you have a mattress that is thick at ALL, I'd recommend maybe getting a king size. Other than that, the fabric is nice quality and the pattern is very cool and unique.
