The color of the fabric was off. The picture shows a white and tan duvet cover. When I received the duvet cover, the white had a tint of pink like it had been washed with something red. It was more than just a little tint, the color wasn't even close to white. Besides the color, it was linen.
The product was pretty. However I am going to return it because it will be to wrinkly for my uses.The linen was fine which was good . I need something a little heavier that does not need so much maintenance. That is not the fault of the product.
This cover would be great if you don't have kids or dogs. It is difficult to keep looking nice. The buttons have easily popped off, and it is difficult to keep wrinkle free after washing. I would not recommend this for reasons of durability.
As usual, overstock provides great prices and quick delivery, however, I should have heeded the other reviews that complained about the wrinkles. I steam ironed this for an hour and it seems to have permanent wrinkles. If you like that look, then this cover is for you. I may still return this as I do not like the wrinkled look. Otherwise the quality of the material and color are great.
First time I sent away for something like this? so did not know what to expect?When this small package arrived I thought I am not going to like this....but I was wrong, it is beautiful and I am so happy I bought this set...It totally changed my bedroom and looks beautiful..I would recomend this to anyone...Its our guest room so know will get a lot of compliments on this set....Maureen
IT"S LINEN!! You've got to expect it will wrinkle. Nothing an iron can't fix. Picture shows true color. A great value with a great bonus of the bedskirt being included - it really completes the look. I have not washed yet, but from looking at the fabric, a gentle wash should do not harm to this duvet. A great casual, yet classy look. Very confortable to sleep in - not too hot, not too cold. I would recommend to anyone.
Read previous comments before purchasing. I purchased for guest room so it wont have every day use. It has a soft relaxed feel while still keeping a clean sophisticated look. With regard to the wrinkles, it is linen and that is the look of linen. If you take it out of the dryer slightly damp there is hardly any wrinkles. I actually set a timer for 12 minutes on low setting so I wouldn't over dry. Works well for my guest room.
This is a good set. It is not as white as I thought, it is more like a light egg nog color with tan trim, very pretty. I washed it as soon as I got it and definitely had to iron the duvet and shams. That is probably the only drawback. The bedskirt is awesome. It is a great spring/summer look and really comfortable.
This linen duvet set with bedskirt looks very nice in my bedroom. The light color makes the room look bigger and brighter. The bedskirt was wrinkled, as others have noted, but I did not iron it. Since it is a linen, the wrinkles look quite natural. The duvet set adds hotel quality appearance to my bedroom. I am very please with my purchase.
I wanted a crisp white duvet cover with the tan accent, it's NOT white, it's creamy and doesn't look as classy. Also I ironed the whole thing, then it quickly wrinkles and after 2 months all but 2 of the buttons had popped off. Waste of money.
The wrinkling is definitely my biggest problem with this set. It happens even if you take it out of the dryer promptly. I have never had bedding wrinkle this badly, but then again I should have anticipated this from linen. From now on, I'm sticking with 100% cotton.
I love our new duvet cover. It is simple, classy, and works perfectly with our bedroom. Color is as pictured, and knowing it was made of a linen/cotton blend, I expected wrinkles and a bit of a tougher texture. Compared to other duvet covers the value is unparalleled. It's cozy, classy, and goes well with anything.
I sent this item back due to the fact I didn't believe it was 100% linen like the description says. It seemed very cheap after actually receiving it. It may work better in a guest bedroom, but thus was intended for my own bed and seemed very wrinkly. I however dealt with a wonderful customer service rep who helped me with my return, making the entire very positive. So although I returned the item I will continue to shop at overstock because of the great customer service!!
The duvet cover set is beautiful, colors are exactly as displayed in picture and it looks great when you first put it on your bed, nevertheless, it becomes very wrinkled all the time and the buttons get loose with washes, buttonholes ripped, and it truly is difficult to maintain it looking good. A bed is to be used and enjoyed instead of spending all your time ironing it.
