I ordered the white on white and am very pleased with this purchase. It is on the thin side BUT with white pillows and a white comforter it is just fine. I haven't washed it as yet, but it fit the wool comforter I purchased on Overstock perfectly. There is something about the look of white linens and a white duvet that makes climbing into bed a wonderful experience. Everything so fresh and clean...aaaaaaahhhhh!
I love the feel of this fabric, but the buttons are in a weird place. They are on the inside part way up the bottom, so your feet bump against the buttons. As a result, all the buttons have come off and all the button holes have ripped. It's a shame because the fabric is spectacular.
I bought this duvet set for my daughters bed for Christmas. It looks terrific on the bed, nice and crisp and clean, however the material is so thin after only 6weeks I started noticing small tears that gradually got bigger. I would not recommend this set to anyone. Do yourself a favor and upgrade to a nicer fabric and thread count.
I have been searching for something to give me the Matouk look without the cost. I'm simply not ready for that investment with 2 babies. The blue is a beautiful blue; not too light/baby blue. The scallop detail is gorgeous with thick threading. They certainly did not skimp on the number of loops.
Great cotton. Nice and crisp, just like your grandmother's sheets back in the day. None of that gross "wrinkle free" cotton, that make sheets hot, and does who knows what to the environment. Just be aware there are no corner ties to fascilitate attaching the duvet. Not an insurmountable problem given the price.
Not a thick lush duvet but pretty and light weight - as other reviewers commented on. Using it in guess room so it will not get heavy use, however if I were to put on my own bed for nightly use, I may have returned for a heavier quality cotton.
Purchased the rose duvet cover and was extremely and pleasantly surprised! The rose color is a beautiful pale pink. I was concerned that the t rose would be more red than pink) but it is truly a beautiful satin shade of pastel pink. It looks like it would belong in a 5 star hotel. I have not washed it yet, but I can say it is ready to be used (no chemical smell or anything). If you love scallop embroidery like I do and wish to have a high thread count cool crisp sheets this is for you.
I have had these sheets for several months now and love them. Other reviews really influence my choices, and these have gotten rave reviews. They are so comfortable! And no pilling, which I can't stand. So many people mentioned how these reminded them of their grandmothers' sheets. I know what they mean. Wish they came in twin - I'm trying to buy some for my 90 year old mom - she would love them.
Purchased this set to update our guest room so that the bed looked crisp, fresh, plush and inviting, especially when I added another layer of cable knit. The duvet set is see through thin, wrinkly, limp, again it's "extremely" thin and doesn't look at all like presented in Overstocks photo's or description. I then washed the set hoping it would help based on other reviews (e.g. 'just put in dryer and wrinkles come out' that's not true - I'm now ironing sheets, duvet & pillows); unfortunately I've washed it and now can't return it. Wasted hard earned money and for first time ever, Overstock.com greatly disappoints.
I was a little apprehensive over ordering this but it is a great bargain. It holds my comforter without it sliding around. It looks crisp even after it gets wrinkled from sitting on it. Wrinkles disappear after a while. So glad I bought this.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the duvet and shams. Yes, they did come out of the dryer somewhat wrinkled, but after use most of the wrinkles came out. I like the way the ends of both the shams and duvet envelop the pillows and comforter allowing complete coverage.
