I purchased a king sized set. Color varies lightly depending on the lighting in the room, sometimes the lt. grey/blue texture pops out more and sometimes the lighter blue, which adds to an overall pleasing effect. The color I am very pleased with. However.....this comforter is much lighter in weight than I thought. The batting is on the thin side. My previous set was also a Madison brand,of a different design, and even though it was light weight it was plumper (having more batting), which gave the bed a "fuller" more even look. I also have an issue with the pillow shams, the flange is totally devoid of any stabilizing material to help hold them up so that when they sit on the bed the flange that shows would be able to stand up....just like they show in the photos! Instead, they just flop back and one can't tell the shams even have a 2" flange. I have been sewing for 40 years so I know what I'm talking about. So beware, unless you plaster your shams against the headboard, and fiddle around with the flange, your shams won't look like the ones pictured. I happen to have two extra king sized pillows behind the pillowed shams to give my bed the plump, "lux hotel" look, and even that doesn't work. Thankfully being an experienced sewer I'll figure something out. Another minus is that if your bed happens to have a high mattress, 18" or more, the comforter is NOT wide enough. If you have a queen you'll have to order a king. If you have a king with a high mattress, like me, you are out of luck. To be fair, most king comforter sets, even those that are higher priced, have the same issue unless you are willing to spend big $$$$ for an extra wide comforter set.
Overall I am very pleased with this set. I was happy to find out that the fabric wasn't a shiny fabric and will wear very well with my two dogs that seem to think that this is their bed. So far pet hair is not being retained in the fabric which is a major plus for me. The color is very true to as shown in the picture. The pillows are adorable too!
Literally just received this in the mail and my fiancee and I love it!! We have an accent wall in our bedroom painted a greenish/blue a very pale color hard to match...while this set does not 100% match the wall color (which we expected) the tones play beautifully!! It completely freshened up the look of our bedroom! We also have some chocolate brown sheets, window treatments and accent pillows and let me tell you the combination of this bedset with chocolate brown is elegant and beautiful!! Also, generally "shiny" bedspreads have a scratchy texture due to the silky appearance (as did our last bedspread) and this one IS NOT SCRATCHY! It is soft to lay on..the best part is the back side has a cotton feel and is even softer! The decor pillows are not quite as soft but thats to be expected! I am very impressed with this! It is not too heavy or light...just right for Florida weather! LOVE IT :)
I would recommend this product to someone with this additional information, the color is not as minty as I thought it appeared. It is more of an aqua/blue and the fabric is dressier than I thought it appeared. I was looking for a more casual comforter set. This is a really nice set if you are looking for a more dressy/fancy look. Based on the description and photo I thought I was purchasing something a bit different. Sometimes it is difficult to tell on line.
The pale blue is perfect if you're looking for a balance with whites or even dark browns or tans. It's not too dull or too pale, and it is not an ugly bright blue. I was most afraid that the colors would be ugly, or the fabric would be too stiff, or the satin "too shiny" aka "cheap looking" but this set looks like the photos. The way it looks in your room will vary. My set looks great in natural light, but also looks good under the golden glow of the lamp at night. My room is white/cream (apt rental), furniture accents are pine wood, and I have a couple decorations that are silver. This set works well with all these colors. I also got satin curtain panels to set against the bed as a "headboard" from Tarjay, and it is almost a perfect match. I bought cream/beige sheets from Costco to go with my set and it looks pretty great. The three accent pillows are great with the set, they are comfy. Not overstuffed and not flat. I like the little one the best because it offers neck support if you sit against the wall or headboard. The pillow shams are soft enough to sleep on, but I use my sheet set's cases anyhow. The comforter is soft enough to sleep on or under, but it is too lightweight and thin for me. It is nice with a sheet in the summertime, but I will have to buy a fleece blanket or down comforter for the winter, which I was planning to do anyhow. I want to point out the patterning in the stitching. It is not circles or circular to go with the fabric pattern, but it is a few lines on each side and in the middle. I prefer this, because it is less likely to snap, but some people may not like this look, so I wanted to point it out.
We love the design and color of this comforter set, its a pale aqua that goes really well in our room. The fabric used on top however snags really easily and is not comfortable. The decorative pillows are pretty as well but a little too hard and over stuffed to get comfortable with.
I had never ordered anything from Overstock.com but found this comforter set and thought it was absolutely beautiful. I was looking for something that would brighten and freshen the color in our bedroom. Excellent find for the money and will be shopping again at Overstock.com!
What first drew my eye to this set was the beautiful medallion pattern. And the quality of the design is so nice --- not printed, but actually sewn in. The throw pillows are also of very good quality -- the embroidery on the white one with the large medallion on it is especially nice. This set is GORGEOUS. The colors are vibrant enough to stand out, but muted enough to be calming. The comforter is not slippery as I'd feared it might be I do agree with other reviewers that the comforter is a little thinner than you'd generally expect -- however in this case I'm actually happy about that, because I tend to run hot at night and a regular comforter is not ideal for me. I personally happen to like something a little lighter like this. It's not nearly as thin as a bedspread though; more like a light quilt. Also mentioned in other reviews is the fact that the flange around the shams is not stiff enough so that they look like in the photo. This is unfortunately true. You really have to poke and prod at them and prop them up against something else to avoid them looking all flattened out. However, to me it's a minor issue because for the price, this set is twice as nice as most sets in this price range. One thing I do want to point out for the less observant of us: the throw pillows are covered in a polyester material. Don't be stupid like me and lean up against one fresh out of the shower with wet hair, because it *will* cause a waterstain on the fabric. It's minor enough, but it's such a shame. Still, I am very, very happy with this set overall. It's very luxe and at a price you really can't beat.
I am really pleased with the Madison Park comforter set. It is exactly the sea foam green shown in the picture. It is light weight and shiny. The pattern in the quilt is beautiful and the pillows are detailed and a very nice complement to the quilt. This is just what I wanted.
I would have given this 5 stars, except that the comforter and all the pillows tend to snag and catch, resulting in "pulls" VERY easily. As far as how it looks, I am very happy with it's modern style and design and the color is the perfect aqua I was hoping for.
Love it! I was looking for a nice set for my master bedroom but my husband didnt want something girly. This is a real nice set it has a masculine and girly look at the same time. Only thing missing where a set of Euro Shams but luckily I had a set that mixed in perfectly. Fabric feels ok.
We try to purchase new comforter sets every few months or so to go with the changing seasons and were lucky enough to find the Madison Park 7 Piece Comforter Set in Mason on OS just in time for the summer. The colors are spot on; they're a really pretty light blue / green color and haven't faded or changed in quality even after a few washes. The set looks really nice against the backdrop of our bedroom furniture set which is in a black color finish. Would definitely recommend this comforter set if you need to change up your bedroom.
I would recommend this product to a friend at the price I bought it for *** but I think the quality of the actual comforter is not worth too much more. All in all, the colors and look are as pictured and I'm happy I chose it. You won't get much more anywhere else for the price Overstock is selling it for. It has a clean and elegant look.
