I bought this last year for my mom and she opened it for the first time one week ago, she lives out of state, she called me to tell me that there was a stain on the comforter and the bedskirt was missing, I could not return it because she washed it before notifying me. I will not buy any more comforters from overstock.
You just never know when you buy something on line. It is even more beautiful in person. Crisp colors and classy in every way! A beautiful black and white statement! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone! If you want B&W beauty...this is perfect!
By the picture I expected The comforter to be mostly the black/white pattern, and with just a few inches of the black trim. The blanket is actually mostly black, with just a small portion of it in the the black/white pattern. Not at all what I expected. It's also thinner than expected.
I will use this in a guest room where I wanted a black and white bedding set. I will provide my guests a different soft blanket and comforter to sleep with. This set is cute and I like the look, but the quality of the material is not the highest. it is somewhat itchy and feels cheap. Since the cost was low, I think you are getting what you paid for, so I am not dissatisfied. I think the set looks much better than it feels. I would not purchase this for use as a comforter to sleep under nor would I use the pillow shams to sleep on. I consider the set purely decorative, not functional nor classic. I would not use it for a Master Bedroom. I am going to try not to launder/clean this because I worry that it will not hold up well. Since no one will sleep using the set, I don't feel the need to clean it before I place it on the bed. All said, I am happy thus far with the purchase for my decorative use. The photo is a little misleading. The underside of the comforter is white. The top of the comforter is about 2/3 black and white and 1/3 solid black. For a low cost children's or college room, it could be a nice choice (if it softens up when cleaned).
I bought this 8 piece comforter set because I bought us a king size bed. I absolutely love it. The only problem that I had with it;is that it doesn't come with any kind of sheets. Instead, it comes with 2 throw pillows. But other than that, it's perfect.
