I just received this set. I ordered it for the master bedroom. The color is very true to the photo in my opinion. My room is painted SW6108 Latte, which is a neutral brownish tan, and it looks really nice and classy with this set. The exact color match for the comforter blue would be SW 6220 Interesting Aqua. Not a sea foam, but blue with just a pinch of green/grey in it, The value for the price is really good as you get 3 pillows and a bed skirt! It is ultra soft on both sides. The outside of it is kind of like the back side of satin..not shiny, but matte. I hope my dog's claws don't ruin this pretty thing. There is a ton of pretty stitching all over it. The backside feels like microfiber, and seems durable. The comforter has more loft than a quilt, but much less than a comforter, so it's a great weight for any season and should easily fit in the washer, even a king if you have a large front load washer. I'm very happy with the quality, but am a bit nervous about the dog thing being my dog is 55 lbs, and there is a lot of decorative stitching. I am keeping it and am very satisfied.
The comforter is exactly that, comfortable! The stitching provides a luxury feeling of detail. High sheen, but cotton underneath. Things don't slip and slide. Bought this partly because it is machine washable and the price was great. 3 stars because the stitching is loose and incomplete in several areas on the comforter. I am nervous it will need extensive repair after washing. Worth the price.
I was on the wait list for this set. I was so happy when it became available. The colors and design are beautiful and the material is not too bad but the stitching quality is poor. The top detail is made completely of stitching and some of the motifs are undone and stitches are bunched and coming out in lots of places. Disappointed bc it is so pretty, but most likely not for long. I would expect that from a $*** set.
I received my order today and opened the box immediately, the color and fabric are better in person than in the picture. The blue it a soft natural blue with not hint of green or aqua and that's exactly what I needed in my master bedroom. The fabric and quality of the set is perfect. I am totally satisfied with the set and can hardly wait for my new bed to arrive. There was a few loose threads and I removed them with scissors and there are no gaps in the stitching. I think by not pulling the loose threads and trimming with scissors is the key to not damaging the comforter. I have purchased several times from Overstock.com before...ie...comforter set, fabric shower curtians and now this bedding set. I am not surprised at the quality and ease of purchase. It was delivered 3 days earlier than expected so I'm very pleased. Happy shopping!!
I absolutely love this comforter set which I use in a guest bedroom. The aqua and brown colors just make the room come alive. I haven't washed it yet but I may get it dry-cleaned when that's necessary. The only thing I worry about are claw marks from my "grand cat". I completed the set with a grommet valance in Java called Veratex Grand Luxe Linen Gotham Grommet Valance. It all works beautifully. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
It was a beautiful comforter, although the color indicated in the picture is a more lighter tone of blue than the true color, it's more aqua. Upon arrival the threading was already unraveling, and after putting it through the wash it came out with a few tears. I was really hoping for a more durable product, and was very disappointed.
Love, love, love this set! The colours are true to the photo, and the loft of the quilt is just right. The fabric on the European shams holds the creases from shipping a bit, but all the other pieces shed the creasing nearly immediately. I would buy a Madison Park set again in a heartbeat!
