I really loved this comforter in the picture, but I was a little disappointed when I got it. You can't tell from the picture because they have the top half of the comforter pulled down, but the comforter is mostly the blue color. The whole top half of the comforter is just plain blue. I thought it was striped all the way to the top, but that is not the case.I was hoping it had more brown in it, but I still think it looks good.
The queen size did not fit my queen bed -- the dimensions are 86" x 86" which is a square. My mattress set is not a square. The colors were nice and it looked nice on my bed, if only it would have fit. I am returning the product and searching for something else.
I bought this comforter for the guest bedroom; it looks very nice. Color and style are true to the picture. The comforter is not very thick but this is what I was expecting by reading the other reviews. I am very pleased with this purchase.
When I received my comforter set I was blown away. The colors were beautiful and matched my wall colors perfectly. It was not real silk but it felt like it. I didn't need to press the comforter or pillow shams but I did press the bedskirt. I wish I had ordered this comforter a long time ago. It is sooo beautiful.
I had read a previous review that said this ran small, but I have a CalKing bed and this fit very nicely. ( I had a backup plan to give it to my daughter if id didn't fit my bed. This is a nice quality product, very beautiful set. I've been looking for this color combo, and was glad I put my name on the wait list when it was on backorder.
Just received my comforter set yesterday. I love it, the colors are really close to what you see in the picture. I do agree with everyone that the comforter is thin, but keep in mind it is a faux silk. I for one will only be using it for show not for sleeping. I have a queen bed and bought the king for a better fit.
I was hesitant to purchase after reading the reviews but assumed people were being too hard. They weren't! That said, I am keeping it. The bottom line is for the money, it looks nice enough to keep. The comforter IS really thin, as others have said, I had to put another comforter underneath of it to get the weight I like for the winter. The fabric DOES feel cheap, as others said too. But when I make up the bed and stand back, it really does look pretty. So it is a keeper. If I was a millionaire, I wouldn't have bought it anyway so it works for me!
After reading the negative reviews, I was doubtful about this set. Yet, I loved the colors. I purchased it with a separate set of ivory satin sheets w/ pillow cases. The set looks absolutuely in my room. I already had chocolate brown curtains and the exact color aquamarine blue on my walls. I bought a lamp with a pleated brown lamp shade. It looks like a magazine cover. Absolutely stunning. Here's the downside. I would never consider sleeping under this set. I keep a cozy comforter underneath and roll it back at night. It's merely for show. The material would never hold up under normal use.
This set is beautiful in color, texture, and overall looks. I did follow the advice of a previous reviewer and ordered the king size set for my queen size bed. The king size comforter fit my queen size bed perfecftly. I think that this is because my mattress is an extra thick/plush mattress (15 inches deep). The bedskirt is a bit large, but can be folded over to fit the queen frame. It looks great on my bed. The lightweight comforter may disappoint some, but it works really well for my needs. A lightweight blanket and/or an electric blanket, along with the comforter, provides enough warmth for me during the winter.
I love this set. The colors are beautiful and you get a lot for your money. It looks great in my bedroom. I don't like heavy comforters on my bed and wish this thinner, but that is my preference. The fabric is soft and comfortable. I do wish I had ordered the king size set for my queen bed as it doesn't cover quite as much as I would like. I couldn't be happier.
This bedding set looks far more plush and comfortable in the photos than in person. The fabric quality tears extremely easily, has flimsy stitching, and comes poorly packaged with wrinkles all over the comforter. There is little cushion in the comforter itself. I don't see this set lasting more than a few months. It is sub-par and I expected better from overstock. No wonder they are promoting it so heavily at such a reduced price. Don't be fooled!
I bought this set and while the blue is not the shade I had hoped, there was a warning prior to purchase that the shade might not appear as on my computer screen. I love this set. I bought a king size for a queen size bed and it is the perfect fit. I would buy it again. Thanks Overstock!
