Beautiful colors, VERY heavy weight comforter. Dimensions truly fit a King sized bed, with enough on sides and bottom to cover properly and not leave things "too short", as some comforters do. I only wish I could find the coordinating pieces to this set (sheets, etc)!!
We really needed to replace our comforter and I wanted a pretty garden to cover the bed and where else would you go for the perfect pattern besides *** ! (okay, *** but I didn't want to mortgage the house...) We got the *** and it just wasn't enough cover. We got this comforter set and it's GORGEOUS and it's really substantial, enough that you really don't need another cover on top. The shams are quilted, they're beautiful quality, and we can flip it for the winter with the darker background. If you've been looking, this is it.
I searched long and hard for the perfect comforter set to put on my bed in order to spruce up the bedroom previous to putting my house on the market. Beautiful, sophisticated and with intense color, this set - not yet actually on my bed - has gotten compliments just sitting in the box. I love the deep blue against the yellow and believe it will give the impression that a woman with class and good taste lives here and is graciously offering to make her lovely home available to you, the potential buyer, for a price worthy of the beauty of this (quite inexpensive, but who would ever guess that) comforter! I'll update later with information on how well it works.
When I received the comforter, my first thought was that it looked faded, almost like it had been previously washed. When I removed it from the package, I noticed the seam where the tag was attached was ripped open. I promptly returned the item the same day.
I love this comforter set. The colors are just like what is shown in the picture and Laura Ashley is excellent quality. I have been looking for a new comforter set for a long time and this one is exactly what I had in mind. It has lots of fill that is fluffy and stayed that way even after washing and the stitching is tight with no loose threads. I purchased a Queen and my only complaint is that I wish it was just a bit wider. I purchased a comforter set from a dept store that cost just a little less than this set but after the first wash the filling bunched up and the cover shrunk. It wasn't anywhere near the quality of this set. I"m thrilled with my purchase.
This is the fourth Emilie comforter set that I have bought. Originally I bought one for myself. After my sister saw it, it became hers. The second one I purchased for myself went home with my niece who was visiting from Florida. After checking several other stores. I finally found it at Overstock.com. Since this item appears to be less available as time passes I bought two more just in case. This way I know that I'll finally have my own with one to spare. I have one issue. Why are the sheets and curtains no longer available? It doesn't make good business sense to stop making items that are still in demand.
Loved everything about this comforter. Looks very nice in my bedroom. Colors are bright and cheery. Nice change. I wanted a Queen comforter but I could only order a King. I figured it was okay a little big because sometimes comforters are a bit small. I am glad I did because a Queen would not have been wide enough. The King is a little long but looks good. The bed skirt was wide but I fixed it in the middle of the bed under the mattress. It was perfect then. Only wish curtains came with it. It was hard to find curtains to go with the comforter.
Beautiful set...my bedroom now looks like something out of a magazine . The bed skirt is 12" which is perfect for me. Only gripe is that the comforter could be about 1-2" larger/longer all around on my king size bed. But very nice quality.
