I had been eyeing the comforter set forever but leery about purchasing, sight unseen. This is by far better than what I expected. It is true that it is maroon color than red and the gold is a greenish gold but the ensemble is absolutely gorgeous! FYI, the underside is cotton and the fringe you see is a throw (not part of the set). I already knew this after reading the reniws. I receive tons of compliments.
While I'm happy with the overall color pattern of the comforter, I agree with another reviewer that the bedskirt is more "green" than gold. Gold would have matched the colors in the comforter better. The thing that I am very displeased with is that the item description states that the package includes a 18" x 18" square pillow. It in fact does NOT. The pillow that is square is 12" x 12", which is nothing near a Euro Pillow (18" x 18"), which is what you are led to believe, and is what they ad tells you is included. In fact, the small square pillow is the exact same one sent with the Sherry Line China Art Red Luxury Pillow ,set of 2, which is also 12" x 12". Very disappointing. Now I have to go out and buy an appropriate size square pillow.
Sherry Kline's designs appear in the ****** ****** & ********* catalogs with pricing starting in the high hundreds if not thousands so what a find to find the same items at Overstock at a bargain price. The color is darker than the fire engine red in the pictures but I like the more muted colors Most places sell the comforter sets with only four pieces this set contains six pieces so it is even more a bargain. Quality is exceptional and it is also made in the USA. One of the best deals today on Overstock.
I was hesitant to spend the $$$ on this set without feeling and seeing - but I think the money spent was WELL worth it. I have owned this set for one year. It is in our master bedroom and is used daily. It looks just as beautiful and rich as when I first put it on my bed. The fabric and stitching quality is exceptional. The layout of the fabric pattern is perfect. The colors are stunning. This is a heavy, well-constructed comforter with beautifully vibrant colors - exactly what I wanted. Once this set arrived, I purchased a matching throw and a set of two more accent pillows from another source - the throw matched perfectly; but, sadly the two additional pillows had different fringes - which doesn't match to my liking - but I kept them anyway for two chairs which are across the room so still look okay with the set.. So, just a warning, if you want additional accent pillows with the same fringe - check it out before purchasing. Yesterday, I placed a order for the matching Table Runner to place on my dresser - hopeful that it is of the same quality as the comforter set and throw.
I expected the color to be different from the picture due to other reviews. And, it is definitely burgundy with what I would call aged bronze tones. I also bought the drapes and really love them as I needed room darkening. Definitely well made and a great value for the money. An added plus....made in the USA
