I was delighted to see beautiful cotton comforters for such a lovely price, and just barely refrained from buying three colors at once. I let myself order one, thinking I'd check the quality before purchasing more. It's my first overstock purchase, after all, as well as my first "City Scene" purchase. I hate, hate, HATE doing returns. Hate them. It keeps me from buying many large purchases online. Alas, by "100-percent cotton," the description writer clearly meant "100% polyester fiber," as that's what the item description states. Bait and switch, my fellow shoppers. Caveat emptor. For all that, it's very pretty. I cannot speak to quality because I've left it unopened in the bag so I have some prayer of successfully fighting the good return battle. I daresay I'll be calling overstock to have them sign in blood that their description is accurate before daring to purchase again. This is my first ever overstock purchase, and may be the last. I hope your shopping is far more successful, dear reader.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly bolder, but very nice.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? :-(
I am very happy with this comforter set. It was just what I was looking for. Comfortable, warm and fluffy, yet also light and airy so you don't feel weighed down under it. The blue color is really pretty - it is not a very light baby blue, rather it is a little darker baby blue. I was worried when buying it that the branches were off-white and not white white, but they are white white. It's a good deal if you are looking to spend less than $100 for a simple comforter that is good quality.
I was unsure what the color would be like after reading the reviews vs. the picture. It is brighter than the picture shows. Not exactly what I was looking for, but I do like it. I just have to figure out a different wall color than I was planning...the gray won't go with it. I will probably do a sand color. I ordered a f/q size and it fits my queen bed perfectly. It is not very soft, but for the price...I will throw it in the drier with some dryer sheets. The shams are a diff material and are not an EXACT match, but they will work fine. Just an FYI if you are very picky.
I bought this set in queen two years ago and it held up well. I was happy that it was still available when we got our king-sized bed. It's a calming color and pattern and not to feminine for my husband.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is a bit darker than it looks, but we bought the same one in the past and after a few washes, it looks more like the color in the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good. Lightweight, easy to clean-It did tear a half-inch when our dog jumped off the bed, but the tear didn't get any larger after that. The material is a bit thin.

I am very happy with my recent purchase of the City Scene Branches Comforter Set. It is heavy enough without being bulky. We bought the King size set for our queen size bed so that the sides of the comforter would hang down(our bed is very high off the ground) and it works perfectly. The shams are quite nice and are only used for decoration in our case. All in all it is a nice set and I do recommend this. Oh and the color is awesome!
Just like everyone else said, the color is not as soft as the picture...it's more a dark, dusty blue. It is also quite thin. BUT given the price, it's not too bad and at least I can buy a new one when I get board with this and not feel guilty.
I really like the pattern on this comforter which is why I purchased it. The quality of the fabric and stuffing could be a lot better though. The stuffing somehow gets everywhere even though there aren't any holes in the comforter. Everytime I remove it to make my bed there's little pillows of white everywhere. The blue color is a little lighter than the picture shows also.
I bought this and it feels and looks nothing like the photo. I actually had a hard time trying to just give it away. I paid $$$ for this. It looks very cheap. It feels cheap and the blue is nothing like the photo. I think a teen may like it. But for the price I could have bought something better in a box store.
I order many duvets, and my first criteria is that it is 100% cotton, This says it is and its not. I never seem to get things returned in time, and hate it when the productdescription and video are not accurate... why don't they change it!
Although I am still undecided about my happiness with the color of this comforter it is a great value for the money. Where else can you buy a king sized comforter for less than $80??? NOWHERE! It is a well constructed comforter and is very warm. However, my disappointment is with the color. The blue that is shown on the web site is a suttle, heathered, warm, victorian blue. What I got was a much bolder and brighter blue. I was disappointed because my wall color is a light to medium gray and this blue is a bit brighter than I wanted or expected.
Looks just like it does in this picture. Reverse side is a little slippery on bed, just in case that's your pet peeve. Since it doesn't come w/bed skirt, I was especially pleased with its generous size. It fully covered our queen bed (no need for a bed skirt).
