When I received this duvet cover set, I was hesitant whether the fabric with its golden details will be too scratchy. But not at all. Even my husband with his sensitive skin didn't mention anything. Besides it's so nice and rich looking. Though it says "dry clean only", I still washed it and dried it in low-medium heat setting before putting it on my bed - I don't believe that "dry clean only" goods cannot be washed. After washing, it retained its shape and color, and didn't require any ironing. Definitely recommend!
This is a great duvet set. I have a queen bed, but I like to order king-size covers because I like my bed covers to hang low on the sides and I'm so glad I ordered King because this is still a good 10 inches short of the floor on both sides on my queen bed. To be fair, it's a pillow top, so it may be a couple inches taller than the average bed. The cover is very nice though; it changed the whole look of my room, which is exactly what I was hoping to do.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of the black and silver duvet matched the picture on the site accurately
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great; material is a little scratchy, but I expected that with metallic threads
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very Accurate Description
Pretty fabric, more like a linen with metallic circular abstract flower pattern, but a dry clean only duvet and pillow cases is not useful at all to me. I didnt see that until it arrived and I turned the packaging over and saw the care instructions. Beware if you, like me, would prefer to launder your duvets at home. Returning immediately, wish it had been a larger note on the product description.
This beautiful embroidered duvet cover is a great value, and super quality for the price. I ordered the chocolate color, and the gold stitching looks great, but is not too shiny. The pillow shams are a bit large, but I just added two pillows to give it the right "loft". I agree with other reviewers that it's not super cuddly, but considering that it is cotton/linen, it's not scratchy either. I would highly recommend!
I am highly dissatisfied with the product. Beware that this product is made with a low quality metallic thread in the fabric weave that sheds "glitter" fragments all over the fabric. If It had been clearer in the product description that this duvet was made with metallic thread, I would not have purchased it. I'm afraid to even open the package out of fear of getting glitter all over my home. I am returning it ASAP, and very disappointed, as this is my first Overstock purchase in which what I was expecting was very different from the actual product.
I am very pleased with this set. It will easily hold up better than the one I bought at TJX . Thatwas destroyed by my dog doing her circles to sneak a nap on the bed! The pattern makes the top layer quite sturdy. The price is amazing. I got the dark brown. I think the circle pattern creates a graphic effect - pleasing to a masculine or femine design.
I actually bought four of these in the Natural color, and cut them up to make curtains for my dining room. The fabric is very nice - it looks like a natural linen, and the chrysanthemum pattern is a subtle metallic gold. It just catches the light and glitters, but the gold is not a high contrast from the background in this color, so the result it a bit of sparkle but not IN YOUR FACE bling. The color is a soft beige like you would expect from natural linen. The backing fabric is a solid color very close to the shade of the main fabric, and is very soft. I used it to line the curtains. It definitely needs to be ironed, which takes some doing with plenty of steam, but with nice results. If you want a low maintenance bedspread you can toss in the wash every few weeks and throw back on the bed, this might not be a good choice - it definitely needs to be ironed unless you like the rumpled look. But when it's ironed and hanging on the wall as curtains, it's brilliant.
It was the same color, size and the quality was better than I thought it would be. so I ordered more and made block out curtains to go along with the duvet. I also bought king size and sewed in an old puff blanket to make a warm winter Duvet.
My son remodeled his room in black and silver and blue and thought that this would complement his choices. It is actually a little bit feminine/glitzy in person, but he turned it to the black side and uses the printed side of the shams more as a focal point with other plain colored pillows and it actually looks quite nice. It seems to be good quality so we will definitely be gently washing it rather than having it dry cleaned. For the price, who cares? The printed/embroidered side is not something you would want to cuddle up to but the back is very soft.
This duvet set is high quality and fits my king comforter perfectly. I bought the chocolate color. The sparkle really gives the room a classy look. The duvet doesn't bunch up and slide around like cheap quality duvet sets.You can put it in the wash and it comes out perfect too! Don't be fooled by the price! You won't be dissapointed!
I didn't realize when I ordered these that the silver is shiny & metallic, not just gray or white. It's not really the look I was going for, but it's for my son's room and he's ok with it. The silver makes these scratchy, so the pieces are not soft & comfortable to lie on. It doesn't matter so much for the duvet cover, but the pillow cases are for decoration only.
I love it! It is beautiful and the stitching on the cover does not itch. Even though it says dry clean only, I washed it in the washer in cold water and it's fine. I get so many compliments on it and seriously one of my favorite purchases from here ever!
