Like some other reviewers, I was kind of creeped out at first by the stamped diagonal squares rather than a traditional gingham weave. Felt it was too much trouble to return, and since my cat sleeps on it all day I figured I could use an inexpensive cover. I was surprised to find how much I liked it after it was washed and on the bed. It's soft, not all wrinkly out of the dryer, and I really really like it. I'm considering ordering another for back up if the cat rips it up. Would definitely recommend it based on quality for the price. Also my husband prefers it to the more girly covers I have. It's less neutering than a floral print.
I am happy with the quality of the duvet cover itself. I like the small classic check pattern but don't care for the side of large checks.. not a restfull pattern for a bedroom. The pillow shams are bad... extremely flimsy and too wide... they don't fit a standard pillow shape and I cannot use them.
When I ordered the duvet set I was looking for a gray gingham. I thought I had found it but when I received it in the mail every other "check" was not a solid gray but little stripes. I know that doesn't make sense and I wish I could submit a picture. To me, a true gingham pattern has no pattern or breaks in the blocks/check that make up the pattern, this does. It wouldn't stop me from ordering at Overstock. Great customer service and wonderful prices. It just wasn't what I was expecting.
I bought two of these for a guest room for kids at the beach. I love that they are cotton ! ( hard to find these days ! ) I got the brown or khaki color even though I love blues. I am pairing it with light blue sheets and walls.. It is a beachy theme, blues and sand ... Put them on the comforters. Looks awesome with blue sheets. Also, you can flip the duvet and show the smaller checks which is a nice change.... Added shams with a blue backround and brown surfboards.. Looks fantastic !
Given the price, it's a great addition to my guest room. The item is attractive and the item was wrinkle free out of the dryer. I thought the larger scale plaid was a bit obnoxious and thought of returning the item, however the reverse smaller scale gingham check was very pleasing. I would recommend this item.
Love the look of this duvet cover! Some reviewers did not like the fact that it was "stamped", but, in my opinion, it does not lessen its appeal. Size is perfect for my queen size bed, ample amount to hang over both sides, even with an extra thick pillow-top mattress. Currently looking for some red or khaki euro-shams to complete the look. Very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend to others.
This duvet cover met all my expectations! I ordered the set in gray and couldn't be happier! It works out perfectly with my French-Country theme in the Master Bedroom. And it not only looks great but it feels nice and snugly soft! This was a fantastic purchase on a good quality product with a great price!
I was looking for a fresh look for spring. I chose the duvet cover to work with new linens. The side with the larger checks has a "run" of blue dye onto the white square in several spots. I kept it and will use the other side. The edges are not seamed to match the print but I still like the overall look.
This duvet cover is wonderful. I had been looking for a new duvet to spruce up the bed in our guest room but everything was very expensive. Since the room is not used very often, I did not wish to make a big investment but I did want it to look classic and clean. This cover is everything I wanted at a great price. The fabric is soft and washes well. requiring only a touch up with the iron. The check print is right on the seam lines and is a typical check pattern. The two sham covers have a flange edge that makes them look large so they stand out well at the head of the bed. So if you are in need of a duvet cover that is : economical, well made, washes well, has a classic design pattern and looks super on a bed, this is it.
