I read mixed reviews about this set, but it was the only one with the color combination I was looking for. I am very pleased with my decision. The colors are rich and elegant, and it is more burgundy than red as described. It goes really well with the soho burst rug if you're looking to mix traditional and contemporary. I love this set! My mom couldn't believe we got such a bargain.
I bought this for my queen size bed and wish I had purchased a King size vs. Queen. In order for it to cover the sides and foot better not showing the mattress box spring a bigger size would have worked. Overall its pretty and you need 4 good size pillows for the covers. It is warm so I only cover up with the sheet at night anyways. It should keep me warm this winter.

It is a beautiful set, all very silky, top and bottom. The description claims it is polyester top and cotton backing...the tag on actual comfort says everything is polyester. Kind of sad cuz i was solely looking for cotton!! But like others have said, it is a little different looking in person. So lets see if I can help. The purplish/brownish looking color is actually a very shiny grey/ silver/gold still unsure but pretty. And it is a cranberry, black, white, and grey/silver/gold. Very pretty and ritzy looking. Yet to sleep on it, will update to the temperature of the comforter.
This was my most favorite comforter set EVER! Sadly, the material ripped by pulling away at the seams in several places within the first week. It cannot be mended because of the type of fabric. It pretty much shredded. I was crushed! I still am... I love it so much that I didn't toss it in hopes that I can someday find a friend who is a highly skilled seamstress who would take a stab at replacing the fabric with a matching more durable type and re-make this for me at a price I can afford. If you are a good seamstress and want to take the chance, then purchase this beautiful set. If not, save yourself the headache and money and choose something else. I'm REALLY disappointed in Overstock, but remain a loyal customer. Good luck!
This was a surprisingly good purchase. Most elegant bedding sets run three or more times as much as this one. The material is elegant looking and looks to be durable. The liner for the bedskirt is rather cheap but should not hurt its effectiveness. The pattern and colors are beautiful. I ordered Cal. King and the set is actually closer to standard king. Since I thought that might be the case I simply ordered the size bigger.
The quality of the set was exceptional, however, the colors were not what I expected based on the photograph. I was expecting dark plums and purples, but the set was more of a dark scarlet, plum, black and silver. It had a more masculine feel than I was looking for, so I returned it.
I was pleasantly surprised that the red color shown, is really a true burgundy. I am replacing an old set that has many of the same colors, so it matchs my wallpaper and other items. I was worried that I might have to return it but it works perfect. Even my husband was impressed. I did order the king for a queen bed, so I'll have to do some stitching on the king size shams, which should be easy. Note: The euro shams are big and square, so will need a pillow form rather than a bed pillow.
There is no purple in the set. What shows as purple is black. It worked out fine for me. I have a queen bed and ordered the king based on the reviews. The king is actually too large as I don't have a super thick or tall matress. I think the queen would have been fine but hated to return it in case it woudln't have worked. The shams are large and don't fit well on the queen bed. The bedskirt had to be altered which I knew but the comforter comes within about 5 or 6 inches of the floor on both sides. The length is short even in the king for the queen bed. It has to have the sheets turned back on it to hide the fact it is too short. That said, the set is beautiful. It is not high quality but then for the price I wouldn't have expected it to be the same as my other bedroom which was over $1300 for the set. For a room that isn't used all of the time, this should be fine and it looks really nice. Everyone has complimented us on how beautiful it is, but I dom't think it would hold up to a lot of use.
