I LOVE this duvet cover. I am a fan of upscale hotels, and this cover makes me feel like Im sleeping in a *** every night! It is seriously chic and stylish, soft and high quality. I have other *** covers that cost the same as this and they are only 300 threadcount, and for the same price you can get this 1000 threadcount set. I LOVE IT. The only complaint is that it doesnt have internal ties to keep the duvet in place, so I just sewed some shoelaces in each inside corner and it works like a charm! I am IN LOVE WITH MY BED. YOU MUST BUY THIS!!
This duvet is very thick and beautiful. I ordered the king sized ivory. However, it only reaches about three inches on each side of the bed so I was constantly pulling at it in the middle of the night. I had to take it off. It would be a better fit for a queen sized bed.
I always say, "if you're gonna do, do it right!" Well, this was first my Eygptian cotton ANYTHING ... and I have to say I'm extremely impressedt! It feels and looks like something you'd see in a 5 star hotel. I"m not lying when I say I find any excuse to lie in bed ... Way to go O!!!!
I ordered the "gold" color duvet cover. While the material is very sturdy, and of good quality, the color was not at all as it appears in the "group" pix of the covers online. In reality, the color is more like the online one designated as "taupe". Its actual color is definitely a cafe au lait kind of "gold," but because of the online pix, I envisioned a more yellow-orange gold. I decided to keep the cover to use in another room, because it was of such good quality and the color isn't bad, just doesn't go where I planned for it to go!
I love how soft my duvet is and how well it has washed up. It looks fabulous on my bed. I use it under another duvet because I have animals. Which leads me to my only complaint , since I have animals, their fur seems to stick to this duvet worse than any other duvets/sheets that I own. I am going to try not to use fabric softener and see if that helps... Overall, I would purchase this duvet again and would recommend it to others.
I ordered ALL the bedclothes! The order consisted of full sets of both burgundy and espresso sheets, both standard and king pillowcases, duvet and shams for a king-sized bed. I had hoped to interchange the colors for one bed. However, sheets didn't match the color of the pillowcases or shams or duvet, etc. Burgundy duvet was a deep burgundy but the burgundy sheets were more on the fire-engine red side. Espresso duvet and one set of the espresso pillowcases were a rich dark brown but the espresso sheets and the other set of espresso pillowcases looked almost dark olive brown. I cannot testify to the quality of the sheets as I was unable to get past the color issue to even wash them to put them on the bed. I can say that they felt a little scratchy to the hand. I would have liked to think that that wouldn't have been an issue once washed. Sending them ALL back for a refund.
I purchased the 1,000 thread count sheet set and after loving them, had to complete the set with the duvet cover and I love it just as much...Stitching amazing and the feel is excellent! It even comes with two shams that I didn't see in the overview - a bonus. Only suggestion is to be a little careful of the color of the one we got which was labeled taupe - sort of looked like coffee in the picture - is a little more on the gold side...but other than that - amazing.
Very impressed with the quality duvet cover and pillow cases that went along with them. I am a sheet snob, and these rate very high in my opinion. The cotton is a heavy duty, sateen fabric that holds up nicely in the wash. Think these are even better than the Frette sheets I have.
I love this Duvet Set, I now have 3 of the colors. I love to mix and match with my Sheet Sets, also from Overstock. These are true 1000 thread count quality linens. I have the White, Burgandy and now the Gold; they are beautiful in color, rich in feel and wash great. You can't go wrong with this set, it is well worth the price. Don't even hesitate about purchasing these linens, you can't even compare them to those offered in the retail stores, the same would be twice or more the cost. Being quality Egyptian cotton, the more you wash them the softer they get without any of the usual problems like pilling that you get with cheaper linens. My one weakness is great linens; I feel we all have such hectic lives that to sink into luxury at night to sleep is an absolute necessity! The only way to get better quality linens is to buy Egyptian cotton that has been woven in Italy; now that's luxury!!! (But at $1000 to $1500 a set is too steep for my budget) These are a great middle ground at a wonderful price I can live with.
I also bought sheet sets and pillowcases in the 1000 thread count. I am in bliss with the way these feel and can't imagine ever using anything else!! I have to admit, I ordered the king Duvet, and was really confused as I thought it was a blanket (wow, I sound so uncouthe!), now that I know how it is supposed to work, I have to say I can't WAIT for winter as this will be an amazing nights sleep!!
These sheets have been treated with chemicals, smell, and have an unnaturallly smooth hand-feel to them. Returning them. Sheets should be free from chemical treatments. With Egyptian cotton and 100-TC, there's no need for treatments like this. Terrible.
