Within just a few weeks of having this on my bed, I could tell that it was starting to come apart at one of the seams. Before I knew it there was a huge gaping hole and the stuffing was coming out. It then proceeded to come apart at another seam and it just looked awful. It was not well made at all. The material was also very scratchy.
This comforter is quite pretty. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, the size is MUCH TOO SMALL for a king sized bed. We have a TempurPedic mattress and if the comforter is positioned exactly in the middle of the bed, you can see about an inch of the mattress/blankets between the bottom of the comforter and the dust ruffle on both sides. I just couldn't get past how that looked. I considered pulling it farther down on the side of the bed closest to our door, but you can see the reflection of the opposite side in a mirror and, quite frankly, it looked horrible. I was also initially disappointed in white/off white stripe in the comforter. At first glance, it gave the impression of being dingy. My husband thought that it almost looked tan. I wouldn't go that far, but it definitely did not match the white drapes or crown moulding in the bedroom. I decided to return it the same day I received it. I was very disappointed, but felt that if I was paying over $100, it needed to be something I liked 100%. To set up my return, I used Overstock's live chat. The gentleman who helped me was courteous and made the return process easy.
Beautiful comforter set. Gives out bedroom that look of ellegance. After 3 weeks though, I noticed that the seams on the front of the set were ripping. I contacted Overstock and they are sending me a replacement ASAP. I love the way it makes our room look, that I'm willing to give it one more try. Lets hope the next is better quality. I think this would be a great product for a guest room.
I loved the pattern & color of the comforter. The fit is only OK as I would prefer the Cal King to be a little longer. However my worst complaint is how it holds up to cleaning. This was the first time I purchased a dry cleanable comforter,figuring it would stay looking nice longer. Nope, not a bit! The quilting inside shifts around and bunches just as much with dry cleaning, as other comforters do in the wash. After spending over $40 each time for dry cleaning, I thought I'd try washing it myself, and it didn't turn out any worse. The material also snags very easy. I do have dogs, and the reviews I read stated the hair brushed off easily. Not the hair from my dogs. After only 1 year, it looks so bad, I'm shopping for a new comforter.
After I ordered the king set for my bed, I had second thoughts. I was worried I wouldn't like the cream color as I would have preferred white and the whole color scheme was different than the rest of my house. But once I embraced the cream color and chose to paint 3 walls that color and teal behind the bed, I absolutely love the look! I also used crystal accents with my lamps, curtain rod ends, etc. My whole bedroom has been transformed (from browns/blues) and it looks amazing. I even painted my oak headboard cream and it looks so refreshed! I also bought the matching curtains and used one panel each to my two windows in the room (one panel fits each window perfectly). I have two cats - one black and one orange - and they lay on the bed all the time and I don't notice their hair. I recently bought more of a velour-type bedspread in my spare bedroom and it really shows all their hair so now I have to keep a sheet on that bed. I also bought the bamboo sheets for my bed and those are THE BEST SHEETS EVER (will do a review on those too). Wth the combination of the sheets, a 4" memory foam mattress topper that I had, plus the nice lightweight feel of the new comforter, I truly feel like I'm sleeping on a cloud - my boyfriend agrees! I did have a down comforter and I thought I liked it, but I love this lightweight feel so much better now. Plus I can get cold easily and I have not had any issues. I haven't even put the king blanket that I bought on the bed - may return it. And this was in February when there were cold nights. I do have a teal throw blanket at the end of my bed that I used once or twice, but I don't think I'll add a blanket. Wish I could download a picture. The only negative I can think of is the width is a little shorter than I'd prefer. One side you can almost see the sheets - but I keep that side away from the entry door so it's not a big deal now. Anyway, I highly recommend this set.
