There were a number of conflicting reviews which I read before I purchased this duvet cover & I read every single one good and bad. The majority of people loved the duvet cover with a few exceptions so those were the reviews that I was most interested in. I will have to say that the few people that did not like it are not into color & design as the people that gave it a good review. Their main complaint was that the color was a lot darker than shown in the photo. No color is going to be truly accurate on a computer & their monitors are probably set to a darker version. There was just a shade difference in the duvet cover from what I saw on the monitor. When it arrived just a few moments ago. I opened the package & I will have to say that I was so happy to see that it is a French Blue as the description said not a dark color as some reviews mentioned. Also one person said that the branches looked cartoonish. That is absolutely false - they do not. They are as pictured in the photo & they are a striking contrast against the blue & they are beautiful. Someone also said it looked cheap - I have been decorating homes for many, many years & the duvet cover certainly does not look cheap or I would return it. It looks absolutely beautiful in my blue & white bedroom & I would recommend this lovely duvet cover to anyone who likes an elegant & striking design. I have purchased many items from Overstock over the last few years & have always been very happy with their products & will certainly order from them again in the future.
I'm very please with this duvet cover. I'm a bachelor, and I've been praised for my aesthetic sense in choosing this to play off of my japanese style platform bed.I've read reviews that complain that the fabric is scratchy, etc. One thing I'd emphasize - at a great rate for a duvet cover, don't expect something completely unrealistic. That said, after multiple washes, I find the fabric perfectly comfortable, and unlike some other reviewers, the cover sits/spreads nicely and presents a well-made, welcoming bed.I think this is a great value - a nice, soothing light blue color, as others have mentioned - and exactly the kind of quality you should hope for at this price point. This is the kind of bedding you are looking for when you want quality but don't want to spend ridiculous amounts of money. I do find the material on the shams a little less than crisp and comforting, but that's a minor complaint. Overall, this set is a winner. I liked it so much, I bought the red version to rotate in for variety (I think both will look nice against a black lacquered wood).My four star rating is only because I want people to be realistic and not disappointed they aren't sleeping in Buckingham Palace quality bedding. I'm very choosy, though, and know quality from cheap. This item is an excellent value.
I am absolutely in love with this duvet. It came quickly and was packaged nicely. I took it out of the box and its just beautiful. Vibrant gorgeous blue color. Popped it in the drier with a few wet, clean towels and some fabric softener sheets for about 15 - 20 mins and it took all of the packaging wrinkles out and made it really soft. It really brightens the room up. Love it! The only thing that isn't quite included in the description is that the duvet does not come with ties in the corners to tie in your comforter. This has been a HUGE problem for me in the past as my down comforter somehow slips and falls to the bottom by morning. Somehow, that doesn't happen w/ this comforter though! I've had it for 3 weeks now and haven't had to readjust it yet! It stays in place. Very nice.
The color of this duvet cover is perfect - it's a rich blue but it's not too dark or light, and the white branches look great with the blue against a dark colored wood bed. The material is thick and feels high quality. Am considering buying more from this brand!
I recieved this duvet cover set yesterday and am overall satisfied with it so far. I bought the full/queen version for a full-sized bed. I prefer bed covers oversized, and this one is just right. The blue is the same as it appeared on my monitor. It is in fact a very "true blue," though it is not dark or overbearing in a room. The fabric is soft enough, though it is not exactly luxurious. The stitching (on the shams especially) seems as though it may not last too long. It feels as though I could very easily rip the seems if I wanted to, and I had to snip a few hanging threads from one of the shams when I put it on a pillow. The design is slightly different than it appears in the photo. I can be picky about this sort of thing, so it may not be a big deal to some. The photo makes it appear as though the lines of the design are very clean, but they are a bit more "sketchy" as if to give the design a "hand drawn" feel. This makes the design feel a bit more juvenile. I am a college student planning to use this in a "dorm room" setting, and I am slightly disappointed by how "dorm room" the design looks. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I have the cover on a full-sized down comforter at the moment, and it is nearly snug enough. I am confident that the full/queen down comforter I have on order from Overstock will fill it nicely. This duvet cover is the first I've ever owned, and it is nice enough that I am satisfied with my purchase, but it is not so nice that I feel nervous or guilty about bringing it into a college dorm setting.
This is a great set for the price! I was looking for something in a blue color to brighten up our room in a "peaceful" way, and this is perfect. I read the reviews about some saying it is itchy- just put it in the dryer with a wet towel and a couple dryer sheets and it's fine. The buttons at the bottom of the duvet are a little tricky, but they actually stay put, unlike other duvet covers I've had in the past, and I have the down comforter clipped in the corners. I like the feeling of it- It almost has a little bit of a fresh linen feel to it, but still soft. The blue was pretty true to what I saw online. It is bright, but not overwhelming because we were looking for something to brighten up our room in a calming kind of way. The print is perfect for us, and paired with white curtains, sheets, and black accessories, our bedroom looks great. This is a great deal!
I had this duvet cover before and absolutely loved it. When it was time to replace it, I was extremely disappointed. I had this on my bed for two days before I noticed pulls in the fabric and holes begin to form. The quality has definitely diminished. I returned the duvet immediately and was charged return shipping for an item that fell apart within a week of using it. I am very disappointed in this purchase, it is not consistent with the quality and service from previous purchases from Overstock.
Overall I am happy with this duvet cover. The design is really nice and looks like it does in the picture; yet, the blue is a bit brighter than it is in the image. I was hoping that it would be slightly less saturatured. The duvet itself could be softer; I have washed it twice and am hoping that it will soften up more the longer I have it. However, I am really happy with how quickly it arrived and how it looks in my room. It is a definite keeper. I might even get the green too!
I ordered this a few months ago and just now opened the package. I must have liked the color because I had my bedroom painted in the same color (and with the package unopened). I have a king sized comforter on my bed (a qeeen bed) sideways because I like it to fall over the edge. The branches are coming from the side instead of the bottom but I think it looks fine. The fabric appears to be nice and sturdy with a bit of a satin feel to them (not shiny though). I'm very pleased with this purchase.
I received this as a gift and I was really disappointed with the appearance of this duvet cover. Online it looked beautiful, but in person it is pretty ugly. The blue is alot darker and the print is bigger and chunkier that it looks in the picture. In general it just looks and feels cheap.
I like this duvet cover. Quality is good, but would be better if the cover included ties inside the corners to anchor the duvet and prevent it from sliding around. The color isn't quite what I expected based on the picture; the blue is a little lighter and the design is white rather than the slightly gray/khaki color shown on the website.
The color is true to the picture, and is very pretty. It is very lightweight, which works for me, but could be more substantial. I've washed it once but did not put it in the dryer since it is 100% cotton. I'm not sure if it would shrink, so I air-dried it and it dried in a few hours. The result was fine. Wrinkles come out once on the bed. It does not have ties, so the comforter inside will slide a bit, but so far nothing major.
The duvet looks fine on the bed, but makes less of a statement than I expected. It is more blue than perriwinkle. The print is more cookie-cutter than it looks in the photo. The material is nice. It fits the bed well. It's OK. But I was hoping for more of a statement. I'm not loving it. Almost everything I have bought from Overstock has met or exceeded my expectations. This duvet cover, unfortunately, did not.
