I originally purchased this set to use as a cover for my duvet. I planned on purchasing a separate, nicer looking coverlet to go on top. However once the set arrived and I put them on my bed I was surprised to find that it looks wonderful on its own. The color is rich and it lays/fits very well to the bedding. The fabric could be softer to the touch but since sheets are between you and the duvet while sleeping I'm not too concerned. The fabric was not too heavy so my down comforter stays nice and fluffy. I believe this is a wonderful buy for the price and would recommend it highly.
I am so blown away by the quality of the fabric, the detail, the color, etc. I love everything about it. The stripe pattern doesn't look exactly the same as the picture, it's just the thick stripe, no thin one. The ivory color is beautiful. The fabric is SOFT and THICK and SHINY. I bought a 400 tc duvet set for my room and this 250 tc for the guest room, and I'm not exagerating that this one is a better quality and look than the other one that I paid $22 more for. I noticed a lot of the reviews are about the blue and the green sets, so if you're worried about not getting the exact color right, just buy the white or the ivory one and accent with blue or green. You shouldn't pass up this amazing deal!
I bought this duvet cover in a king size, white. The cover has a wonderful hand--silky and smooth yet crisp and fresh. I was impressed to see the piece has self-piping around the edges, which gives it a richer look. The subtle tonal stripe pattern adds depth and interest. Other high-quality details to note: The buttons are covered by a flap so they stay hidden, and there are openings in two of the corners to make adjusting the comforter inside easier. Shipping was amazingly fast, and Overstock's customer service was enormously helpful with my order. I'll definitely try Overstock again.
This duvet set looks and feels very nice. I would definitely recommend it for the price! There's just one setback- it needs A LOT of ironing after washing. Even if you remove promptly from the dryer- it is still very wrinkly! I spent about an hour ironing it. So if you don't mind doing some ironing, this is a good buy!
I pre-washed duvet cover per instructions and removed it from the dryer after cycle had finished. It looked like a wrinkled mess. So I ironed it.......no small feat seeing it was a king size. Didn't matter. Always looks wrinkled and messy.
Duvet covers normally go over the comforter to keep the comforter clean and change look in the room. But I use Duvet's for covering my feather beds and 4" foam mattress beds. This keeps off the dust, dust mites, sheding hair and skin, all hard to remove from foam mattress beds, and keeps the feathers and down inside the feather beds. I wash once a year and am very pleased with the results. Very inexpensive way to protect expensive feather beds and foam mattress beds. I highly recommend shoppers give this a try. Gail
This is my first duvet cover, I was just using my down comforter alone (gasp! the horror!) but realized I would have to wash it at some point, so I got this. It's white, but it does have some creamy, off-white undertones, not brightest white, but still white. It is soft, easy to get your comforter inside, and looks nice all made up. The shams are also very nice, quality. Downside: as you can see in the picture, the stripes are a little more casual and a little less luxe, but they still look nice. If I had a bigger budget I would have gone for wider more dramatic stripes, but this is still great looking. Overall, great duvet, very pretty and breathable too.
This is an excellent value. fabric is nice, price is right BUt this is NOT a blue duvet cover. I would describe it as gun metal grey in some lights (and that was fine for my decor). A man might disute the gun metal grey and say it is lilac or lavender... sort of. Would match up well with most colors but not a powder blue, navy blue or true blue. All in all I am very satisfied but would not be if I really wanted blue
I go the blue one but after a few washes (I followed directions) the blue starts to fade and it takes on a slight lavender color instead of steel blue color. The other thing is that the buttons started coming off. Other than those issues its a very comfortable and soft cover and I would buy another one if it would just stay blue.
This was my first order with overstock.com. I was very impressed with the service, and the quality of this duvet cover; the fabric has a great look and feel. The order arrived within 7 days. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was that one button had come loose. I have been looking at other duvet covers that were well over $100 that weren't even this nice.
This duvet cover is great looking, very simple, and clean. This material is very thick and soft, really great quality. The price is really unbelievable, this is my third purchase from overstock and another great product. Cant go wrong with overstock.com!

I had previously gotten the same kind of cover, but at 600 thread count and the thing is almost impossible to lift, let alone get the comforter into it! Anyway, I got tired of tugging on it, and got the 250 count one instead. It is perfect - not too heavy, but the material is very nice. Didn't wrinkle much on washing & drying, and looks great. There was only one problem - after getting the comforter into the cover and buttoning the closure, I notice that there was a big lump at the other end. I found that my cat had crawled inside while I was putting it on. That problem now solved, I like my new cover. Well worth the price.
I actually purchased this for my son and his wife for a new apartment they were decorating. The color was true and vibrant, just as shown in the on- line picture. For a 250 thread count, the quality was excellent. I am buying one for my other son as a Christmas gift.
This was a great buy for the price and quality! I love the color (light green) and stripes that runs through this cover. After one washing it came out of the dryer very soft and was easy to put my duvet in with the hidden corner pockets. You can't go wrong with this cover.
I saw a duvet set that looked exactly like this at a very well known department store and liked it very much...but the queen duvet was on SALE for $74.99 and each matching pillow sham was $29.99. Instead of purchasing the set, I thought I would check Overstock and WOW was I glad I did. I got the entire queen set for under $43.00 (shipping incl). The quality is outstanding!! I would highly recommend this set for purchase. I am going to use it in a "Shabby Chic" bedroom that will be decorated all in white!!
I got about what I expected from this duvet cover. The appearance is truly lovely - nice stripes, sheen. The color (ruby) is not quite a bright as I expected, but I am glad it is not a deep burgundy as other reviewers described it. It is a very neutral wine color. The feel of the fabric is slightly rough, but not terrible and hopefully it will soften. By all means, however, if you have a queen size bed, order the king size! For anything other than a very low profile queen, the full/queen size would be too small. I ordered the king size and am very pleased with my choice.
