I recently purchased a black leather bed and was searching everywhere for a black n white comforter set that i didnt think was cheesey looking or cheap. When i saw this i instantly fell in love n prayed when i got it home and saw it in person i would still feel the same....its absolutely gorgeous! I am super thrilled that i made the decision to buy it!
I already wrote one review for this comforter but I'm back again to say I love this comforter even more. One of our dogs who is on her last leg with us if her behavior doesn't get better soon found her way into our bedroom and completely soaked our comforter in bright yellow urine, all the way down to our mattress pad. I was absolutely devastated because I'd read some of the other reviews that said they weren't happy after washing the comforter, that the quality was poor, and I pretty much thought our comforter was ruined, and promptly ordered another one (I love it that much). But I still wanted to try and get the stain out. So I used a stain stick on all of the stains and then washed the comforter on the delicate cycle, warm water, with bleach. The first wash showed no results - still big bright yellow - but I decided to do it all one more time, and after the second wash, with an extra rinse cycle, the stains were GONE! But we still had the next test: the dryer. Because the comforter has the look and feel of a duvet I was concerned about the material inside clumping up. I dried it on the delicate cycle as well, and after it was finished, pulled it out and air dried it the rest of the way over our bare mattress (since the mattress pad was in the wash anyway). I noticed at the top of the comforter it looked like the material inside had shifted away from the edge leaving a weird noticeable gap so what I did was flip the comforter around and let the top hang off the bed hoping maybe gravity would help. It did! Everything is back on the bed as it was. Underneath the comforter I have a soft white fleece blanket (since it's winter) and Egyptian cotton sheets under that. The layered look and feel is amazing and I look forward to curling up in my bed every night!
I was extremely happy with this purchase! The comforter is all cotton, bright white and beautiful and doesn't make me feel suffocated at night because it's so heavy (I personally don't like heavy comforters, so if you do, this isn't the set for you). The black pattern isn't ironed on (as I originally feared) but sewn giving it real personality. And the pillows are my favorite part! They have one that is velvet, one with a cutout pattern, and one that is satin with pearls! This was a perfect addition to my Victorian Gothic style bedroom and I would highly recommend this set!
The black scroll on the comforter is on the left lower corner of the king-sized set. The appliqué is very nicely done. The decorative throw pillows are exceptionally nice. The only problem is that I only received 7 of the 9 pieces in the advertised set. It was missing the 2 euro shams. But, I love the set.
I purchased the king size set for my new master bed matress. The comforter was the only thing that I took out and it was way, way too small for my bed. The picture shows an over lap from the top of the matress of about 12-18 inches (enough to cover the side/thickness of the matress). This comforter maybe hung 4 inches to the right and left sides of my mattress. Once you get 2 people under it there is not enough to cover you both. The quality of his cotton comforter seemed good otherwise.
This comforter set looks awesome!! It has just the perfect amount of black on the pure white background. Not only does it look elegant but it is really comfortable and warm. I love walking into my bedroom to see my beautiful comforter set. I actually get excited to make my bed every morning!! :)
Despite reviews that say this set was beautiful and quality, it's cheaply made, basically two sheets with batting in the middle and some appliqué. I kept it because we had a house showing, but it wasn't worth the money. You could buy better for half the price at Anna's
The photo of this comforter is so pretty. I received it & it was so NOT what I had expected! First off, it was so wrinkled, I had to steam the wrinkles out, which took forever. But sadly they come back! You must be extremely cautious with this comforter because its really not practical. We thought it would wash better then it did. After following instructions for washing, it came out looking so BAD!! Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles. I wish I could get a different comforter, this one just doesn't look as it should. Very disappointed!!
For the price the quality is fine and the set looks very nice. I washed is before putting it on the bed and what a nightmare. I spent over an hour ironing the comforter and the shams were so bad that I rewashed and ironed while they were wet. If you plan on using this other then just for show I wouldn't recommend it.
DO NOT BUY! Item states that it's 100% machine washable, that IS NOT the case! Bought this item 6 months ago and just washed it for the first time. The filling is not tacked down to the comforter so when you wash it the inside filling gets all jumbled up in the middle of the comforter and you can't fix it. You are then stuck w/a comforter you can't use. Contacted customer service because I consider this defective. Only option was to exchange for the same item, which is pointless since who wants a white comforter you can't wash or I return it and they will give me a partial refund but can't tell me how much. Could be *** who knows? It's up to the warehouse. Who would risk that? I'm stuck w/this junk. Also, the picture looks like it's really good quality, it's not. The comforter is very thin, like a thin white sheet. If it weren't for the filling you could see right through the material. Due to that, it wrinkles easily and stays wrinkled all the time giving you a messy look. There is another review stating the same thing about the filling. The pillows are nice that come w/it but the comforter is a huge disappointment.
Looks exactly as is pictured. The comforter is a bit small for my king size bed but still looks nice...just not much overhang on the sides. I have a tempur perdic mattress that tends to get hot so this is perfect! It's nott too think but still looks nice and keeps me warm! Very beautiful!
I was initially very concerned about buying a comforter online. I couldn't be happier! This comforter set is stunning! It is soft, comfortable and absolutely gorgeous. It looks far more expensive than it really was (thanks to o.com) and an incredible deal for the price. I love it! It looks exactly like the photo!
The only issue I had were the wrinkles, and it's a King size. I used a water bottle to spritz and pull, and that worked out well. Guessing with a little time (only been about a month), that it will settle out, or I'll take it to the cleaners and get it done. Otherwise beautiful!
