First of all, to clarify the Overstock's description of this product, it is black and WHITE. Not ivory or cream. This is exactly the design I was looking for and it was a great value. Looks more expensive than it is--I have gotten several compliments on it. This comforter is a great medium weight, in case you're like me and wake up sweating sometimes with quilts or heavy blankets. Would work great with any black and white color scheme! Highly recommend.
We bought this set for our guest room and were mostly looking for something very inexpensive (don't want guests staying too long!). I was really impressed by this set. It's very stylish and looks just like the picture. It was sized correctly and makes a great looking bed. It's not luxurious, but not rough/scratchy at all. I would buy this again and reccomend to anyone looking for bedding on a budget.
The comforter is light weight, but nice. For cold nights, an extra blanket might be needed. It comes w/2 reversible shams. The background color is very light ivory. I can only tell if it is right next to something white-white. I use this set in a room with light blue/gray walls and white trim. It looks great.
I bought this for a full-size bed I have in our guest bedroom, so it won't see a lot of hard use. For the price, it's a great deal, nice truly reversible comforter and two pillow shams, really dresses up the bed. Not sure I'd call the shams reversible, they do have the nice striped pattern on the back but since you can see the overlap/opening to insert the pillow, I didn't like the way they looked on that side. Might be a problem if you prefer the stripes to the floral pattern. Note: the color looks like a bright white in the photo, but it's actually closer to a very light cream than a bright arctic white, didn't bother me but you should know if you are looking for a bright white and black pattern.
I bought this comforter for the price. I was looking for a comforter that would really add to my new bedroom suit. I found one that was much more expensive and will be sending it back because it is too think. This comforter was perfect for the summer weather in the south. It is so comfortable! I will tell you that for the price, you only get the comforter and 2 pillow cases. I will need to get 2 black shams and some throw pillows, but I will enjoy this comforter for a long time.
