I've had this set for a couple of years now, and I love it. The more you wash it, the softer it gets. The only cons are: Shams are a bit tight, so they gap in the back, but they're not really reversible, anyway. Also, I have a cat who like to make cookies on it, and it picks easily, and the picked threads show up as white streaks. If you don't have an unruly feline, this set will do you good, and you can't beat the price!
I needed new bedding for our larger new bed. I have purchased my former bedding from Overstock and didn't want to switch, but was being "thorough" looking at all my options. (I was way too indecisive) After four days of continuous searching and looking at 3400 (yes, it's true) Duvets, comforters and quilts, I decided to throw in the towel and 'just get something' before our bed arrived. I ordered this Havana Black and White Duvet as it went with the existing Damask in my bedroom and it was only **. I figured I could change it out later. Well, it arrived before my bed, washed up beautifully, is as soft as a kitten and it looks so fantastic on our new bed and in our room that I am NOT CHANGING! I just love this Duvet and we use it without anything inside. It's perfect. You cannot beat the quality and price. Trust me. I worked in retail display and design for over 20 years and I know this stuff! You won't be disappointed with this purchase.
I had purchased the teal/chocolate color duvet cover several years ago and loved it. When it was time to find a new cover for the guest room, I chose this duvet color in black and white. It did not disappoint and I hope to have many years of use as I did with my first one. The quality is very good, medium weight, and to avoid ironing, put it on the duvet right after it comes out of the dryer.
I ordered this duvet cover set in king sized to use with an old king quilt on a queen sized bed. It works great, all cotton,very nice hand, easy on and off, and washes beautifully. I am so happy with this purchase,and the price is terrific. I ordered in the blue, and it looks wonderful on my bed. I am considering ordering in another color for the guest room! I just use two standard pillows in the king shams, but could easily sew a new seam to fit a std. pillow, since there is no ruffle on the sham. Having such a simple sham also gives the bed a sleaker look, and does not interfere with all that print.
