I was looking for some turquoise accent pieces to jazz up my living room. There is gold, red, and turquoise in my oriental rug and my furniture is a soft muted gold, with gold and red throw pillows. So the hunt began for the perfect color throw. It's not easy to find. All the throws and pillows that I found were very garish and deep in color. I had my fingers crossed when I ordered this one but had read the reviews and was hopeful. I held my breath when I opened the package (which arrived in 3 days!) This throw is a soft, muted turquoise and is made very well. I couldn't be more pleased.
This is a good quality, beautiful color throw. If you want it to stretch the entire width of your king-sized bed, it doesn't quite make it, but looks nice in a crosswise position. The color in real life is much more like the second (unfolded) picture. It's very soft with a good weight. All in all, very pleased to have spent the time tracking down the perfect throw for my decor.
I ordered this despite some reviews that suggested it was not very heavy (thick). It turns out to be fine, about the cloth weight of a sweater, which is perfect for my wife to use when she sits out on our porch in peidmont NC. The color is also good, an innocuous grayed greenish blue which really doesn't look like denim, but blends in well with a lot of colors. Overall, a nice piece at a good price.
This is a lovely throw, but the color does not have as much variation as the picture shows. The description says blue and green, and I see only a solid aqua color in the throw I received. I am returning it and will look again at other throws offered by Overstock.
Saw this at a boutique designer shop for $XX and thought it was beautiful, just the right color and luxurious weight and feel to use as an accent for my bedroom. Bought it and brought it home. Even though it was perfect, I hated spending that amount for an accent piece. Checked Overstock and found the exact item (not just a look-alike) for nearly $XX less. Ordered it immediately, received it in 3 days, checked to verify that it was the same as the expensively priced one. It was. Hightailed it back to the designer shop for a return. Thank you Overstock.com.
