I own the ivory version, and it is beautiful. My only complaint is that the hoop is made of plastic that snaps if the canopy is tugged or if pressure is put on it. Be sure to leave space between the mattress or headboard and the wall so the canopy can hang freely. However, I will note that the hoop was easily repaired with clear scotch tape, so all was not lost. This canopy is worth purchasing and definitely a gorgeous accent to any space -- just be aware of the hoop's limitations.
I ordered this product despite the mixed reviews, but unfortunately, I have to agree with the negative comments. The fabric is extremely cheap-looking and poor quality, and the item arrived without the rattan hoop. Not sure if that was intentional or unintentional... I intended to hang the net above my bed, but have no choice but to return it. It is more suitable for outdoor use. Very disappointed!
I ordered the red to go over a futon-like bed I bought from overstock. The plastic ring is very sturdy, and it looks great. My husband is from Laos, and is scratching his head about this "mosquito net" I bought when there are no mosquitos, but he does see that it looks very luxurious. Make sure it is places to that you are not sitting or leaning on the material, it isn't made for that.
The tie string broke apart within 2 days of having it over our bed so now we have nothing to use to secure it shut. The fabric had a weird smell to it so we had to wash it really good and it stained our bathtub from all the dye in the fabric :(. It looks nice though
I knew the moment I opened this canopy up, it was going to look gorgeous! And does it ever! It is even longer than I imagined, which works fine for me, I just let it pool on the floor for an elegant look. It is super easy to put together, I'm sure a child could do it. It adds that certain touch of class, grace and elegance to a bedroom (or wherever you place it). The netting material is not as thin or cheap as others I've purchased elsewhere in the past. If you're undecided on this one, I say buy it, you should have no regrets!!
Product appeared to be just fine however as it was a present I did not remove it from the packaging. My grand-daughter's request was for white and this color was ivory as white was not an option for me to order. As yet I have not heard her opinion however from my stand point my experience with overstock,.com was a positive one.
This thing is neat & the cats haven't bothered it (BIG surprise there!). Actually, they love sleeping underneath it!

I wanted this brown netting for a statement in my "Hemingway" guest bedroom. I knew I didn't want white or one of the princess colors and to my utter amazement - O had a brown canopy. The picture on the site looked "cheesy" but it was on sale and I would have returned it if not satisfied. It is absolutely perfect, NOT cheesy and the brown is what I hoped for. Once again, thanks O!!
