I purchased king, but its more like a queen. It's not like the picture at all as far as size. The king comforter would come only to the top of the skirt in the picture on the website. I have a wood frame and it just comes over the top, which is fine because the wood is pretty to show. Get the size up if concerned. Material is a bit fragile looking, I would be nervous to wash...but great for price!
This set was ordered to go use in our guest bedroom. I was surprised how well it went with the colors of the walls as we had them painted in a two tone with a light beige on the top with a white stripe and then a darker taupe on the bottom. It is perfect. The only thing is I wish it did not have the sheen, but since it is in the guest room it is fine. Amazingly I found window treatment that had the same colors. The room is a perfect guest retreat.
I had never spent more than $$ on a comforter set and decided we needed a more "grownup" look. This set added a touch of elegance to our master bedroom and definitely upped the sophistication level. I originally saw it in a model home and had to get it for our own home.
