I purchased this coverlet to use over blankets (in lieu of a third sheet) as our K-9 kid is sure that the bed is his. The construction, color and quality more than met my expectations and it's holding up very well with frequent laundering. Perfect!!
I was expecting a much lighter shade of "soft gold" as indicated in the photo. The actual color is close to the front corner hang-over that is in shadow - a nice color, but earthier than I am looking for for this room. Also, be aware that this is not a quilt. It is a coverlet or bedspread. There is a single layer of substantial,"puckered" fabric and no stitching except around the edges. A perfectly nice product, just not what I expected.
The quality of the coverlet exceeded what I was expecting. The color was a bit off of what I imagined but I DO understand that each monitor displays colors differently. I laundered and hung the coverlet on my clothes line before use and it maintained it's shape.
I wanted a matelasse coverlet and euro size pillow covers to dress up a guest bed which is otherwise in white. The color is much more green than it appears in the picture. I was expecting it to be more of a blue. It still works in my guest room and being cotton, it looks to be a reasonably nice quality and for the price it is very good value.
One of the shams and the coverlet came with flaws; they were obviously 2nds and weren't sold as such. The smaller sham had a 1/2-wide flaw in the weave of the fabric that ran across the entire front. The cover's bottom hem wasn't sewn properly. If I had the time, I would return them, but I don't. I'll just try to hide the flaws.
The colour name is misleading. Abyss is the colour of sage green in the shade, and it's just a peaceful, cool addition to a summer room. This is very pretty, unassuming, which might make you think it's dull. It's not dull. It's serene. geometric. And, it's Metalasse, so the touch is COOL to your skin. Lovely, at night.
