When I put this on our bed, it made the room look very elegant and we were very pleased with the appearance. Then when we went to sleep and felt the fabric of the comforter against our skin, it felt rough to the touch and we didn't like that very much. The throw pillows are stiff and not very comfortable either. Looks great, but not soft and cozy. Will probably look for something else and use this for our guest room.
Ordering off the Web is notoriously risky, since photos can be prettier than the real thing. But in this case the comforter and pillows were even better than what I could see in the photos. The look is elegant and after months of use the comforter and pillowcases are holding up very well.
For me, this comforter was a letdown. I feel it was too thin. I discovered that I didn't care for the pieced together look on this comforter. There were many stitch marks and it didn't look very good. I didn't keep it long and off to Goodwill it went.
I bought this comforter set about 2 years ago. It is pretty but not very practical. I really should have ordered it for our guest bedroom instead. Pros: It looks great on the bed! The neutral colors are easy to match Cons: The outer fabric is scratchy and uncomfortable. If you have pets- beware! their claws catch and make awful snags in the fabric After a few washings, the polyfill bunches up and looks lumpy
