I love the style of this comforter. So elegant! I decided to keep it regardless of my disappointment in Overstock's incorrect product specification. Ticks me off and I will think twice about using them again. Yes, the product details are wrong: The photo is wrong. The backing is not 100% cotton, it is 100% polyester. The Euro shams are not brown nor are they pleated. They are striped! (That was my greatest disappointment.) The color scheme in photo is not true, as so many reviews report. The colors are subdued in comparison with the photo. Not blue, but gray. Pale olive green. Yellow is dull gold. I love the colors for what I needed. Quality is OK for the money. Lastly, the fit of this comforter on a king-size pillow top bed (reg. or cal.) falls short (width) on both sides of bed. Length is good. To deal with this I needed to purchase dark brown sheets. If you're going for elegant, this one's nice. NOTE TO OVERSTOCK: Get your act together! Update the product details page and photo. That's just wrong!
The colors are very different than they appear online. It's like someone took the pic and then completely changed the color in photo shop. Think muted, yet metallic...don't think green, brown, and/or blue. Picture an olive drab, metallic gold, and grey. Fabric has a sheen (if you like that sort of thing). Nice weight, nice pillows. Because colors and size (runs small-wish I did) aren't true I'm giving it an average rating. (Overstock, can someone please get on photo quality/color and view the photos online like we see them? This is 2012. Modern technology makes it easy to have accurate pictures. Returning is an old-school pain...)
The comforter set is beautiful, The colors were a little different than they looked in the picture but not enough different that I couldn't use it. It is still a great buy and a great value. The green is a bit darker than it appears in the picture. But still love it.
Originally I purchased this set to update my light blue & brown bedroom. So you can only imagine my distress when I opened the box and it was so olive. But I decided to place it on the bed to see if it would work. AND BOY WAS I SURPRISED!! The weight is awesome, it is very light yet warming. The sheen in the material is a welcome change from the everyday cotton of regular comforters. *Note: If you are hoping for a more brown stripe, this is not it. The colors are metallic and very rich looking, but brown is hard to really place in the colors present.*
The picture is very deceiving, the the comforter does not come down the side of the bed, actually I found the comforter in the king size to be rather on the short side. The colors are nice, although the brown doesn't completely stand out and what looks like green is more grayish. Love the additional pillows. If you are not crazy about the length of your comforter, then this would be a good set for the price.
I absolutely LOVE this comforter set! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for in my bedroom and when I found something close in other stores it was easily 2 or 3 times what I paid. Also, I was shocked at how quick I got it. I sweat Overstock knew 3 days before I did that I was going to purchase this and sent it to me because I got in within a day!
I honostly was pleasantly surprised by the comforter set. I was glad that I read the reviews though, as the colors are a bit different than what you get. The blue & green are really more a grey & olive. The actual comforter is extremely warm-which kind of surprised me too. I was expecting something a little "less" in quality. I was very happy in the quality of all the items. I also ordered a 400 count sheet set that matched perfect and is also VERY nice. All in all, great product for the money!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I was glad that I read reviews. The picture makes it look as if there is blue in the set. It really is more grey & olive
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
This product does not look the photo on the website. The photo shows much more green that what is truly on the comforter. I was quite disappointed as I specifically wanted a comforter that had green in it. It is more like a gold color than green. I will be returning the comforter set as it wasn't at all what I thought it was.
was looking for a spread for master bedroom, painted a lite sage green - most spreads with color green in them were florals - not good match for the man in the room. No sage green in this spread, but the army green and gold yellow coordinate real nicely. Have dark brown wood floors that blend with brown tones and our furniture is black, so the black strip blends too. total picture is awesome.
I agree with the other reviewers about the colors, but they work in my guest room, blue walls and rug with golds, brown and a bit of blue. The "grey"stripe looks more blue in my room (perhaps because of the wall color), My complaint is that this comforter is very skimpy. It is sized more for a full bed than for a queen (which is the one I purchased) and it is very light weight compared to the one I replaced. I barely fit the old comforter with 2 shams and a skirt in the bag that held all 8 pieces of this one) It's in a guest room, so I'm going to keep it because it "looks" good but I'm going to have to provide a few extra blankets (including wool) for my guests.
