The plum color isn't incredibly vibrant, which is exactly what I was looking for; a pop of color without being distracting. The weight is perfect for me; it's not too heavy and doesn't retain too much heat at night. Average softness for cotton. Not too scratchy. Overall Average buy. Better than Ikea and better than hunting through TJMaxx.
I read all the reviews, on all the sites this product is offered on. I found that people complained about the wrinkles, the size, the color, and the feel of the fabric. I think the fabric is fine, its not 10,000 Egyptian cotton or silk--but it still feels good against the skin. ;-) The color is exactly as described- its plum purple. Yes, it is wrinkly....its the style. I put it in the dryer for an hour, to really get the extra wrinkles out, then put my comforter in it and put it on the bed. Its looks fine, I love the roosch waterfall look it has. If you have a queen size bed--that doesn't have side boards, you will need a bed skirt, as its not long enough on any sides---or you could order the king to cover all sides. my bed is newer (2years old) it has side boards or the platform style, and it fits my queen size bed perfectly. I will admit the throw pillow is a little small, but its a nice touch. I am on the shopping hunt for some accent pillows in black/white/sparkles.
Very happy with my purchase.The Rutching on cover adds depth & intrigue to a bed.I had previously. Had a very expensive Duvet cover on.But it just looked flat( Pun intented) After making bed with the Madison Park Plum,The effect was astounding! Whole room seemed to Pop.Def,recommend this Duver Cover.
I understand that wrinkles are part of the look, but it is too wrinkled for my taste. I didn't return it because I thougt I would eventually like it more. It's still on my bed, and I continue to wish I had returned it. Also, I have a long-hair cat and her hair really sticks to the fabric. If you have a cat, I recommend that you do not purchase this.
OMG! I just love this set! Looks sooo sophisticated in my studio apartment. Gives outstanding look. The quality of the fabric very thin, a little slippery and definitely needs a flat sheet underneath. I bought flannel sheet set and it totally great match. The color (plum) very warm and unusual. Happy for my purchase!
This comforter looks great on the picture but it does not compare in person. I knew as soon as I opened it that the fabric was cheap but I put it on my bed anyways. It looked terrible. It was very flat and did not have the wow factor that I saw in the picture. If it was a nicer fabric, it might have been ok, but the dull, cheap, thin cotton just did not do the job.
Arrived on time and is exactly like the description; plus the price was so much less than any other site and included the shipping. Huge savings and a really quality product. Definitely a great site to purchase quality items at great prices.
I really thought I was ordering the comforter set but somehow I goofed and ordered the duvet. Doesn't matter the duvet and shams are very well made and the cotton is fine and soft. The color is also beautiful it isn't a bright purple but a dusty plum color very sophisticated.
DO NOT ORDER MUCH ON LINE WHEN I HAVE TO MAKE CHOICES IN COLOR. I TOOK A CHANCE AND IT WORKED WELL FOR ME. I LOVE THE TYPE OF MATERIAL QUALITY, AND COLOR. THE LOOK IS JUST WHAT I WAS TRYING TO ACHEIVE. THANKS, OVERSTOCK.COM ***********
I am very happy with this purchase. It is the perfect amount of feminine ruching without being too little girlish. The fabric is a soft cotton feel and does not have a sateen finish, just like the info suggestions, but I saw some reviewers who said they expected it to be shiny. It shouldn't be and it isn't. It is a purple, but it isn't a warm tones. I feel it takes on cooler tones, and in some lights almost shows undertones of blue. Great product, great price and feels great too! I would purchase this over and over for my room!
