We ordered this for our spare bedroom. And, to cover a comforter, not a duvet. primary color around the base is BROWN, not plumb, like some have suggested. We had to turn our comforter over to the solid side as you could see the pattern through the duvet cover. Luckily the back of the comforter was solid. Very happy with this purchase. Good quality and the pattern is dramatic.
On the plus side, the design is unusual and attractive. BUT, it is a fair bit darker than it appears in the site photo. As well, while the fabric is quite heavy, the low thread count means it's rather rough and it definitely needs to be ironed after it's washed. I'm giving it 4 stars because of the design. The set itself is really no more than 3 stars.
Very nice duvet cover - just like advertised and looks really nice on our bed. The dark color (as stated by other reviewers) is more burgundy/brown than the red that it looks like in the photo, but it is quite nice. A nice change from the more muted pastels of most of the other duvet covers out there.
I bought this for my master bedroom which has an exposed brick wall. It matches beautifully with tones of rust, orange, and brick red. The background color is more of a taupe/gray than blue/gray (as appears in the picture), but this is not a problem for me as it makes the set complement the wall even better. The duvet cover is soft and a light cotton blend: just what I was looking for. Highly recommend the beautiful pattern too.
colors look sharper and deeper in picture than in product. More of a rusty color than wine. The colors are not as crisp. making it look less expensive or older than I anticipated. Purchased for using in a spare room as futon cover - haven't really used it yet so cannot comment on durability
Firstly, it arrived within the expected deliver date, however I opened the package and immediate knew that I wasn't satisfied. The color of the product is NOT what the picture shows. There's a clear difference in the white that's really a gray. And for whatever reason there is, I didn't like the look of it in front of my eyes compared to the picture. Second, the material isn't soft and I didn't expect it to get softer with washing. The duvet both looked and felt cheap and without unfolding much of the product (so I could refold it) I saw loose strings. And you know what's worse? They still made me pay for the shipping even though I was not satisfied with this purchase. Complete waste of time and money. I would not recommend this particular product to anyone.
Pretty, and great for the price. Not the softest material, but since you need to get a separate fitted sheet (and possibly bed sheet) anyway, doesn't really matter. I got a purple fitted sheet but in retrospect should have gotten brown.
The duvet cover set is good value for money and good quality. Love the modern, zen, Japanese-style pattern on the top surface - the underneath the color doesn't match the maroon color on top, it's more of a washed out faded brown color... but no-one sees that part anyway. The material was a little hard but softened up after washing. The main background color is a kind of beigy-light-gray. Overall, pleased with purchase.
I was happy with the customer service of this duvet set. I mistakenly ordered a king set for a queen mattress and didn't realize it until the package came. I called, and received a replacement set. I did pay for shipping the original item back (that makes sense; it was my mistake). I still got free shipping for both items. However, the colors aren't exactly what I expected. The bottom is primarily brown, something not evident (to me, anyway) in the photos. I expected it to be primarily red, which is the color I wanted in the room. Because of my issue with the 2 items shipped, and liking the design better than anything else I could easily find, I kept the set. A red bedskirt looks terrible on this duvet set! I'll need to get a different color.
I have a king sized Simmons Beauty Rest mattress. It is not a pillow-top because I don't like pillow tops and it is not super deep, nor is it a California King--just your regular king sized mattress, but I have had a terrible time finding duvet covers that fit. When I put the cover on the bed it is almost exactly the size of the surface of the mattress with little to no extra fabric to drape over the sides. It looks terrible on the bed because the proportions are so off. I have not figured out how to fix this. It's incredibly frustrating. I've never had a problem fitting any other bedding--sheets, blankets, etc--but the duvet covers never seem to fit. Our guest room has a queen bed in it and it is a pillow-top and extra deep mattress, yet any bedding I've purchased for that bed always fits perfectly.
