I ordered three of these in the burgundy color. Two of the three arrived with a weird stain--almost like the color had worn in one spot. I used them anyway since I could cover up the spot with other pillows. But, when I went to wash them, they fell apart. I love Overstock, but would suggest they drop this line and instead pick up the "Fresh Ideas" linens. Euro shams are hard to find, and the FI line is a much better quality.
The red shams really look more towards the burgundy color, not a true, medium rich red. These shams were a bit pricey ( I thought ) as opposed to the regular shams I was buying but I wanted two red euro shams to form a headboard effect on a bed without a headboard and this does it.Heavy enough but a color issue for some I would guess. I was OK with the burgundy myself but I was not tring to match anything else in the room, but I was contrasting with navy pillows and bed comforter. It worked great for that. Came quickly.
When I opened the packages-I purchased 2 red--you could tell thatthey had sat on a shelf for some time. the parts of the sham that were visible in the package had faded. They looked stained from the fading. I will think twice when ordering linens from Overstock again.
I bought the pillows on this site and the shams to go over it. I don't care for the material of the these shams. They collect lint like crazy and aren't worth having on the pillows. The color is fairly close to the color above, it is probably a little darker.
The reason I wouldn't recommend this item isn't because of poor quality, honestly didn't have it long enough to know that, but the color wasn't at all like the one pictured. I ordered the chocolate brown and this was definitely not chocolate brown, didn't look like the color swatch online at all. I was very disappointed. It also had a shine to the fabric which I wasn't expecting.
