I bought this because I absolutely love this print, and this type of fabric. Both were just as I wanted. I chose to ignore the "dry clean only" (cuz really, who's going to dry clean a duvet cover??) and just wash it gentle cycle instead. If I hadn't put it in the dryer, it would have been fine - but the trim on the edges seemed to shrink a little bit. The only part I don't like is that the workmanship is rather poor, if you examine the stitching and the buttons that hold the blanket in place; a button fell off the other day with only a few weeks of use. If you buy true to the size of your bed, it won't drape over your bed almost to the floor like it does in the photo. For king beds there's nothing you can do about that, but for a queen get a king duvet and blanket!
I'm very pleased with the quality of the Duvet cover so far. I washed it upon arrival and with a quick light iron looks lovely. The King size is very generous, the colour is more towards gold than beige (as shown on the web site), but this matches my master suite perfectly. I'm very happy with this product and at such an amazing price. Thank you Overstock.com
THIS IS A VERY LOVELY DUVET. THE COLOR HAS A CELEDON CAST SO IS IS NOT A TRUE GOLD. IT HAS A LOVELY ROLLED BRAIDED EDGING ON THE DUVET & SHAMS WHICH FINISHES OF THE SET. SHAMS ARE OF AMPLE SIZE. THE JACQUARD PATTERN MAKES THIS A LOVELY ADDITION TO MY BEDROOM ENSEMBLE. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU . HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PLEASED WITH PRODUCTS I HAVE PURCHASED HERE!
It is rather gold in color, and a bit hotel-ish, but whether that's good or bad is a matter of taste. I do like how it looks on the bed. But the construction is cheap. The fabric is cheap--the backing is just a very lightweight broadcloth. One of the upper seams missed a few inches, and there's a raw edge hanging out that I know will fray if it's cleaned. And the trim isn't attached around one of the corners. If you're just looking for an inexpensive duvet cover and it's currently a good price, it's not terrible. But it's not going to last forever.
After reading all the reviews with completely opposite descriptions of the color -- "It's too gold," "It's not gold enough," "It's pea green..." -- I figured I'd have to order it and see for myself. My observations: 1. Yes, it is gold. Probably more gold than it looks in the picture. 2. Just how gold it looks depends on the lighting in the room and what's next to it. I have drapes in my room that are a more muted, brownish-gold, and next to them the set looks much more yellow-gold. I could kind of see why one person thought it looked greenish, but then I put some light green sheets on the bed and now the set doesn't look greenish at all. Also, "warmer" light such as typical incandescent makes it look a deeper gold, while "cooler" light makes it more yellow-gold. 3. The controversy over whether it's shiny is a result of the pattern -- it's actually a shiny gold pattern on a non-shiny, more beige background, and again it depends on the angle of the light. The overall effect, though, is definitely shiny. You would only like this if you were looking for a sort of posh, old-fashioned, gilded look to the room. It's not subtle. My bed takes up most of the room and it was really a bit overwhelming, so I tried draping a soft sage-colored microfiber throw over part of it, and now I really like how it looks. 4. I think the quality is quite good. The piping is firm and well sewn, and the fabric has a substantial feel. 5. Those who complained about the size are right -- I bought the California King size for my queen-size bed, and although the pillow shams overhang the edge of the bed, the duvet hangs to just the right length on the sides. I think it would probably not be wide enough for a true California King-size bed, unless you only wanted a couple of inches of overhang on the sides.
In search of a GOLD Duvet. Read the reviews which stated it was rich in gold tones, almost overbearing. So I waited with anticipation and when it finally arrived much to my disappointment it was clearly TAN/TAUPE. If you are looking for a true gold duvet, this is not the one for you.
The color is not gold, not cream, but a greenish color...not quite pea green as stated in other reviews but definately green tones. The quality of the material is not so great. However, the price is great, the color actually went with my decor so it works for now
