I bought this comforter set for my son heading off to college. I was looking for something that would be soft to the touch since this would be his primary blanket. It is all that I hoped it would be. The suede feel is perfect. I was a little concerned that the blue might be too much of a baby blue (not manly enough for him) but it is more of a lighter slate blue. The brown helps to balance it out. I received a good "its OK mom" shoulder shrug which from my son translates into "I like it a lot but I'm not going to be seen getting excited about bedding". I have already washed the comforter as per their instructions and it washed great. Delivery was fast and I paid less through Overstock then other sites I was checking. I am a happy customer.
It's a decent set, but it's 'frumpy'. The picture looks pretty crisp, and it's not. I think it would be great for a teenagers room, or a really 'relaxed' room, but I wanted something a bit classier. It has a lot of static electricity due to the microfiber. Also the color was an issue for me. I was trying to buy curtains, so I order the sky blue insulated black out curtains and the comforter looked slate blue. When I bought slate blue curtains, the comforter looked sky blue. I looked every where for curtain and couldn't get anything to look good. The brown is also a very unsual color and I couldn't match it either. Needless to say I sent the comforter back along w/the sky blue curtains.
The first thing I noticed was the size of the Comforter. It says queen but it ended up being the size of a full/queen. The only reason I kept it, I gave the set I had on my bed away before I checked everything out. Not to smart!!!! The comforter doesn't lay completly flat, it's like the pleats were sewn without making sure everything was flat and air got in. It's hard to explain but, maybe in time everything will flatten out like it should.

I recently decided to change my grandson's room who visit less often than in the past to a more adult feel. However, I wanted to accomplished this with our impacting his avaiation theme. This comforter was a perfect choice providing a subtle elegance, yet highly functiohnal.. It has a brushed suede cotton texture which makes it durable and low maintenance. The color was what I expected and I simply love it.
Love the colors and the fabric and the fact that it is washable. I also like the pleats. Fits our queen size bed nicely, as does the bedskirt. Comforter is thick and should provide plenty of warmth for the winter, but will have to take it off for the summer when we are sleeping. We have only had it for a short time so can't comment on the washability factor.
I bought this for my 8 year old son's room. He absolutely loves this comforter set; the colors, the design, and the feel of the fabric. I love the quality myself and purchased a King sized set for my bedroom.

This is a very nice set, particularly for the price. I would have rated it as excellent, except that the comforter is a bit too narrow for a king-sized bed. The colors of the fabric are not really as shown. The blue is really more aqua that the sky blue in the photo and the brown isn't dark brown, but rather more camel. However, they are an attractive combination and I actually prefer them to the colors shown.
I was pleased to find that when I received the comforter set it looked like the picture. The color is what I expected and the material is so soft. The stitching on the detail is very neat and crisp. I would definitely recommend this comforter set to friends.
I cannot say that this was a poorly made set, it wasn't. I have had it for over a year now. It has not worn out but the comforter itself has gotten a bit lumpy. Not terrible, just not smooth. Primarily what I do not like is the microfiber itself and I certainly cannot blame that on the manufacturer. That was my error in thinking I wouldn't mind it. It is very heavy looking in the warmer months, makes you want to have a 'summer' set. The colors were true to the picture. I'm looking for all cotton this time round......
At first I was very excited, I was treating self to a make over for the Christmas holidays. I brought this set, and curtain to match from another vendor. When I took the set out of the bag, I was disappointed. The colors were muted, material not of the best quality. I returned, and it was costly to return.
The first negative about this set, and rather important, is the permanent wrinkled condition of the fabric. The overall look is nice, it is soft, and it makes a good impression. I suppose I'm asking too much for spread to be wider to cover the sides of the bed better.
The Madison Park Kirkwood Blue Comforter Set is everything and more than the ad indicates. It has transformed the bedroom into a beautiful and peaceful area that I am proud to show. The material and price of the set made it even more appealing.
