After reading the reviews, Im slightly in shock that some are surprised about wrinkles after getting it out of the dryer, wow - its damask - thats kind of understood, and also if you iron it , the appearance is totaly different, takes 2 min to do the pilllows and ten for the duvet. Its a beautiful luxury material and it looks great. Great price for an excellent product.
The duvet looks great. The striping really makes it look exquisite and expensive. Just a note, I have a piilowtop mattress with no box spring but my bed is pretty high. The queen duvet could be a little short on the sides if you want your duvet to stop 1/2 way on your bed. I didn't want a long duvet because i would prefer showing the legs of my bed. Just something to think about. So if you have a high bed and you want to cover most of the sides, you may want to go with the king.
I am very particular about my bedding. I've been spoiled by staying in some very nice hotels and I love quality bedding. I shopped around on Overstock.com to find just the right kind of duvet cover to suit my needs. It wasn't easy to find one with a good thread count (high, not too high, as I didn't want the cover to be too heavy), at a good price, with good reviews, in white. But I finally settled on this one and I love it! It is not too crisp and it is soft and smooth. It has a beautiful expensive sheen to the fabric finish, and the stripes give it a little extra something that plain covers do not have. I have cats that love to sleep (and shed) on my bed and their fur doesn't seem to stick to it. I bought a queen size and it fit my queen sized duvet perfectly. Love the shams.....the whole set is of excellent quality. I wish it had a matching bedskirt! You can't go wrong with this set!
I wish I knew that before I ordered. After washing the duvet and pillow cases were terribly wrinkled and not soft at all. I think they shrunk quite a bit as well. I do not buy bedding expecting to iron it! Later I read on the cotton industry website that thread count is not all that matters, there are many other factors to consider. So from now on I know not to waste my money on "bargains."
I'm totally disappointed in the duvet cover. It's ivory, and arrived with black stains on it. There is a weird seam about 24 inches from the side seam, and there are holes in it. I would definitely not recommed this to ANYONE. I'm pretty disappointed that Overstock would sell something of such shabby quality, and I'll probably think twice before orderd another product from Overstock.
The duvet cover is not what was expected. There is a seam about 3/4 on one side of the cover which makes the bed and cover look lopsided. This is poor quality and should be disclsed by O before purchase. The look is cheap and not what you would expect even if priced at a bargain rate.
Rec'd the Duffet - the quality of this product speaks for itself! The color has a slight "gold" hue to it. I'd ordered the "linen" the color is more of a taupe under warm lights casts a golden tone. The feel before washing was soft and luxurious, even more so after an intial wash and tumble dry. Sizing is great - slightly oversized allowing my overstuffed down comforter and pillows to fit just fine. Kudos to your buyers for a job-well-done!
I got the Smokey Blue which is more of a silver blue which match perfectly with sheets marked light blue... I saw comments about the "seam" running down the middle which it does have and past duvets I have owned had that as well... Mine is a king so maybe the smaller sizes do not have that? Doesnt bother me as it isnt very noticeable. I took a great deal of time researching which one to get and I am very pleased with this products quality and at a great price!!
Have had the first one of these covers for three years (since I got my down comforter here also) and love it.Would suggest resewing buttons before losing them, but otherwise great quality. It comes out of wash a little wrinkly, but I don't iron it and it doesn't look bad after smoothing. It IS 100% cotton so I'd expect some wrinkling.Just got another to make changing bed easier, but even with 3 dogs on and off the bed, the first cover is still looking great .... and it's been washed countless times!
Great value as I expected it to be from Overstock. I get all my bedding from Overstock. This purchase was exceptional in the very smooth hand of the high thread count 100% cotton fabric and the attention to detail in the manufacture of the duvet. I even like the way the shams envelop the pillows without buttons. Of course no one delivers like Overstock, it usually arrives a day or two after your order for little or no charge - can't be that!
I'm very happy with this duvet cover. It's soft, attractive, and well made. I would have liked more color choices, still I'm quite satisfied with this bright white. I was afraid it would be too heavy and squelch my medium-weight down comforter, but it's just fine. Be aware that it is 100% cotton, so it has a lived-in look with soft wrinkles.
I ordered a king size, and this duvet is very short to be a king. I expected it to be a bit wrinkled after the first wash/dry, but "a bit" is an understatement. I kept it on my bed for a week and never got over how short it was. I do have a thick mattress, but my current duvet at least tries to cover most of the sides of the mattress - this one didn't even come close.
This is a beautiful comforter, but be careful of shrinkage. I had to contact Overstock and let them know that my queen bed was going to need the king sized comforter because the duvet would not fit after the first wash. Might be a good idea to have it dry cleaned.
This is a beautiful cover and feels just great on the bed. My only complaint is that I've had to order two, both of them having stains from the packing. I've kept the second only because I'm tired of dealing with the process of sending items back. Other than that I highly recommend ithis product.
I have purchased several items from Overstock, but this is my first review of a product. I recently purchased the 600 thread count duvet along with the 600 thread count goose down comforter. I was hesitant to order (linen) without seeing the color, but took a chance. It is exactly the color I wanted. The comforter fit perfectly in the duvet and goes well with the bed skirt I currently have. I haven't washed it yet, but it is very soft. Don't hesitate to buy this duvet, you won't be sorry.
