The color, sort of a dark raspberry and taupe, and sheen was perfect for my needs. The lighter thread color on the darker parts of the comforter that some other reviews complained about was insignificant to me because there were so few such areas. The three pillows are great & the bedskirt in taupe has the same nice sheen. My only slight concern is that the queen-size comforter could have been a little more generous in size. Overall I love it.
I loved the colors of this set from the picture and I still loved it "in person". It is shiny, yes, but not chip looking at all, it is rather rich and tasteful. Beyond the good looks, with my husband we both love how wonderful the material feels. It is smooth and luxurious. If I would change anything about the set is the closing on the blanket cover. They used buttons (many of them), which are kind of awkward to button, also the buttonholes started to shred early. I would prefer an easy zipper instead. Many review mentioned the stitching, which I don't have any problem with, they are part of the design and on my set they were perfect.
I Purchased this set for my 22 year old sons room hoping it wasn't to feminine .its absolutely perfect. The colors are are beautiful as described. The feel to the skin is very soft if you it as your main comforter to sleep with. Making the bed in the morning it lays on the bed perfect,no lumps, no wrinkles. It also fits the bed perfect. Madison Park makes beautiful long lasting comforter sets. This is my 3rd bed set from Amazon. Amazon delivered 2 days!!
Item received and all looks nice as advertised. Color and pattern as expected. Comforter is a little thinner than expected. The test will be on what they look like after washing since I haven't done that. I hope it will still be decent.
Even Better Than I'd Expected! This is the Best Quality/Lowest Priced comforter set that I've purchased in over a decade! The colors are EXACTLY what they looked like in the advertisement, which is EXACTLY what I' had wanted/needed to match my curtains. Best Deal I could have hoped for!
The colors were perfect, the pleating is what I would have expected from a high-end comforter maker.....however, the random, patternless, erratic, directionless, stitching on the comforter to keep the filling from shifting, or pooling at either end of this comforter is mindless.....on the burgundy, maroon like section, this stitching is done is a light beige and the threads have not been snipped off, leaving not only the tight stitch that does not match the body it is being used upon, but the light offending thread trailing off at the ends......it could have been a stellar piece.....but now it has placed itself in the latest example of shoddy workmanship category......too bad....this comforter set now lives in the guest room.......
I love the colors of this comforter. I have looked for a comforter in these colors for two years. It is super soft and the colors are soft and rich. It is not red but cranberry. The beige is more of a golden beige not khaki as it appears on my monitor. The brown is pretty and not too dark. This is a decent inexpensive set, but the detailing makes it look more expensive than it is. A lot of the reviews mentioned the white thread and one person referred to it as "yarn". I thought that it was white thread on the "lines" but it is not. There are eight to ten two inch stitches on the comforter. It is not that noticeable and does not take away from the comforter. It does have a sheen to it which I like. The throw pillows are small, and I will probably replace them. The pillow shams seem to be standard and not queen sized. Overall, this is a good price for the product.
i bought this bead spread because i loved the color and the pattern; however, when i received it and opened it up it had a really sheer almost sparkly look to it. i didn't mind it too much but my husband didn't care for it... we have had it now for about a month and i have fallen in love with it and my husband doesn't seem to mind it either.. but the picture is deceiving because it makes the colors look mate instead of what it really is. aside from the color/material issue it is really comfortable and well made.. and the best deal for the price.
I absolutely love the colors of this set. The red is very vibrant and goes well with our décor. We have a king sized bed, while the comforter does not drape over the sides as far down as the picture shows, it is enough to cover the blankets underneath. We are happy with this purchase!
I read every single review and mine will be similar to all of the high ratings. The comforter is SOFT - not like the usual polyester scratchy, itchy material. It's the perfect weight for winter but not too heavy for summer. The stitching complaint is valid - it doesn't make sense that different color threads were used on different colors - but it's small enough and doesn't bother me. The pillows look REALLY nice and considering how much they charge for throw pillows, they're an absolute steal! Highly recommended.
