I was apprehensive about purchasing a duvet set without really seeing it. Both my husband and I are very happy with our purchase.It gives our bedroom a masculine touch, but yet also a feminine feel. We're very happy with the duvet set.
I was a little nervous about purchasing this set because of the material, but it's soft and doesn't feel like it's going to slip-n-slide all over the bed. The colors match perfectly to my room, but the blue does seem a little lighter than in the picture. The backing of the cover is made of a different material and feels very breathable, and plus! machine washable! I'm so excited to get it all set up!
I have mixed feelings about this duvet set... THE POSITIVES: The colors are really nice and go nicely together. The accent pillow with the flowery/branch-y pattern was pretty. I think it looks nice in my room and ties together the rug, wall color and curtains. It was easy to find sheets that matched the tan color of the bedding. The King sized duvet cover fit in my regular sized washing machine. THE NEGATIVES: I wanted a duvet so it would be easy to wash. The comforter slipped down in the duvet cover within 2 days. It has little ties in the inside corners, and we tried to tie it around the comforter, and the tie broke off without being pulled on very hard. It did not come with a bed skirt, and the dark brown color is actually really hard to match because the fabric is shiny. Shiny brown curtains were the only ones we found to match. I also felt like for a King size, it should have come with 3 pillow shams and at least 1 more accent pillow. I ended up buying the same bedding set (with an actual comforter instead of a duvet) at XXXXXX, which came with a matching brown bed skirt, but did not come with the flowery accent pillow. (The comforter does NOT fit in my washer. ) So I'm now using pieces from each set. Some people said the material is scratchy. It's not the softest, but the backside that touches your skin is softer than the outside. My last comforter was a very similar material, and got softer the more it was washed. The material doesn't bother me. The blue is sort of a light icy blue that I think compliments different shades of blue.
Beautiful bedding set. I can't speak to how well it will hold up as I've only been using it for 2 weeks but so far so good. It looks like a much more expensive set so I'm quite happy with quality and price. It does have a shiny quality to the material but I expected it. I think that just makes it looks more high end. I almost didn't buy it based on some of the reviews, but I am glad I did. It does not bother my husband or I at all.
I read the reviews before ordering so I felt that my expectations were in line with the reviews. In other words, I was expecting a "Good" product. The duvet cover was conciderably larger than my king comforter. Color was exactly as shown. It was a little shinier than what I was expecting though which gives it a little bit of a tacky look. Of all the Duvet sets that I've ordered from Overstock, I would say this was my least favorite.
This set is gorgeous. It looks so regal and expensive, and I love the color palette. I found the duvet a little too long from head to toe and my comforter kept slipping to the bottom, leaving me with about 6 inches of duvet cover sans blanket up by my head. So, I trimmed off a few inches and now it's great. The only thing I'm not a particular fan of with this duvet is the way the material feels. It LOOKS beautiful, which I love, but it's not particularly soft and cuddly like I prefer a duvet to be. Also, of note: large clear buttons are used to close the opening. I find that the buttons come undone every so often, but it's not that big of a deal. Still a great set.
I wanted a duvet cover to put on the bed for decoration without stuffing. I hate a cumbersome stuffed comforter. So it's perfect for what I wanted it for. The wrinkles fell out when I put it in the dryer with a damp towel. I could have bought a stuffed comforter for the price, but I just wanted the duvet, so it's a little overpriced. There's no dust ruffle. The blue is hard to match, but it's a very soothing spa color. It was delivered quickly.
This is a very pretty set and looks great on our bed. I just put it on for the winter and glad I did as it is a lot heavier material then expected. Not for good use in the summer or warmer months. It has not been washed yet but the outside ripples are a little uncomfortable to lay on top of or to rub your skin on. I do really like this product and still highly recommend it. The colors are nice and the pillows are a good quality as well. Even my husband complimented the set!
I love it, it's so pretty. I was worried buying a duvet for my king-sized sleigh bed, but it fits nicely, and the pattern is such that tucking it in to the foot-board doesn't ruin the look. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that the fabric on the inside is a bit delicate, and I had no way of knowing it from the description. It took exactly 20 minutes for my cat to give it a nice shredding in the corner, and the fabric ran. Luckily, it's on my husband's side, so unless it totally falls apart in the wash, I'm keeping it, and I'll just cover that side with the lovely pillows.
I didn't know what to expect in terms of quality given how inexpensive this set was. However, the duvet cover and shams are of acceptable quality...a little shiny for my taste, but not too garrish. And, the accent pillows really make the whole set just beautiful. I have this in our guest bedroom and now it looks completely pulled together and ready for guests.
I agree with some reviewers that the feel is a bit scratchy, but I have a flannel flat sheet between me and the duvet, so it doesn't matter. On the other hand, this is a beautiful set, with decorative pillows and shams that make my bedroom look sophisticated and complete. The color of the blue is more green/blue than light blue, which is the way that it appeared on my screen. But I love the look so much that I kept it anyway.
Even though it was not the portrayed in the pictures, the set is lovely. I have gotten several compliments on it.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was accurate, except the color.
I really like this set, it went beautifully with my room - the only issue is while I love the fact it is a duvet set and I can take it off and wash it, the more I wash it the more I see it starting to come apart in certain areas. I wash it on delicate and usually only once every two weeks (I have dogs and they sleep on the bed) and I've had it now for a few months and there are only a few (unseen) areas that are slightly fraying. I still think it's a nice set and I'm glad I purchased it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fairly similar
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's not the best quality - but you get what you pay for, and as long as you don't mistreat it...it's fine.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Near perfect
The colors are more muted than I expected and I had a hard time finding matching sheets and other decor. The top of the duvet is not as soft as I was expecting, my husband hated it and didn't want to sleep on it. The throw pillows are cute and decent quality. It's a nice set and feels like good quality, just not the softness or or colors that I was hoping for.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the actual colors are more muted. The dark brown is more of a lighter milk chocolate than dark brown as I expected, the blue is more silver blue and the taupe is no where near beige.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It feels like it's good quality.
I was uncertain if I should purchase something like this online but I am glad I did. The set looks like it cost more than it did. It is very comfortable and not scratchy.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes-the blue is a light blue and was true to my screen settings
- How is the quality of the product? Feels nice, thin material but good for the price. With the duvet over a down comforter though it doesn't make a difference.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
