This was an interesting purchase...In the picture, I thought the comforter looked a little more off-white, even though the description does say "taupe." Depending upon the time of the day, the comforter gets really silver-grey looking. It's a beautiful set and the pillows that come with it are very pretty. It's a nice neutral set. Even though the color was a little different than what I was expecting...it's beautiful.
This is a beautiful comforter set; however, there are a variety of items you should know before purchasing. As far as pros are concerned, it is very comfortable, stylish, and provides an immediate elegant appeal to the room. However, the bedding is more of a taupe/neutral color and material is thinner than expected. Once we received, we stored it for two weeks until our matching drapes arrived. We then opened and placed onto the bed, and we simply adored it- but that feeling did not last long. Within one week, the stitching at the top of the comforter completely unraveled. Although beautiful, it is quite disappointing to have invested time and research into a product that simply does not meet our standards. Please invest your money into a more dependable product.
The appearance of this set it nice. Yes, more taupe than the white it appears to be in the picture. But after the 1st wash (cold machine wash as instructed on the label) both shams are shredded at the seams!! Didn't even put them in the dryer. DO NOT BUY. Horrendous quality.
I purchased this comforter based on fairly good reviews. I was disappointed with the quality and color was much darker than appeared in the pictures. It's much more of a gray/taupe than the off while color. That being said, it was fine for our guest room and not worth re-packing to return. There is not much "luxury" to this fabric, and it will not hold up over time. I would have returned this if it was for my master bedroom.
I just received this bedding set and put it in the guest bedroom and I was suprised of the material. It was way better than I originally thought. The colors was nice, the material was silky and soft with a little weight to the comforter but it goes very well together on the bed. For the price, it was well worth the purchase.
When I saw the colors online it looks almost like a mauve grey shade, however when I opened it up and placed it on the guest bed it almost looked green. I was disappointed and then realized that it was the type of light bulbs I had in my ceiling fans. I switched out the 2700k bulbs(yellow tint) to 3500k (white tint) and now the comforter looks a true shade of grey. Very happy with this purchase.
Within a few weeks of having this comforter on our bed one of the seams tore into a big hole. I was unable to repair if so had to take it to a tailor which wasn't cheap because of the type of tear. The material of the comforter and pillow shams is polyester so it pulls very easily. I would not recommend this comforter set to anyone who plans to use it on a daily basis.... Maybe better in a guest room.
When I purchased the comforter set I really worried about the colors and how it would go with the bedroom carpet and wall. It was perfect! I needed a look of silver and yet also a taupe or beige look for the carpet. It not only matched, but it also gave the room a special presence - an I I was really concerned when I purchased the comforter that the colors might not go with the carpet and wall color in the bedroom. It was perfect, in fact, the design on the comforter was silver and the pillows were a combination of taupe/beige and silver. The comforter really gave the room the uplift it needed!
The product was nice but the quality of it was poor. It was coming apart at one of the seams..It has a beautiful design but I guess you have to watch when buying, but Overstock was gracious enough to take it back without a charge...I still love Overstock .
I just received, the comforter is beautiful but toooooo dark. I need to return it because does not match with our bedroom color and decorations. I'm a little disappointing. I didn't open it but we can see its beautiful thru the plastic.
