Arrived promptly and I could follow the delivery process online via email from Overstock. This is the nicest comforter I have ever bought. So worth the money. The cotton is very soft and inviting. The quality in unbeatable. Stitching very tight; no loose threads hanging everywhere like most come. The back ground is not bright white, but since the leaves have white mixed throughout it looks beautiful with white sheets and pillow cases. I have a standard pillow top mattress that doesn't give rise to my sheets or comforters. This comforter is plush and looks very full. My mother-n-law saw it while at my home for the 4th of July and ask me if I have a feather bed; she has seen this bed many times with no comment. I grinned from ear to ear because that was exactly the look I have been searching for. Not the flat one level look most comforters have when staying with the light weight versions. Even though it has a rich, full look, it is not hot or heavy. The bed skirt is very detailed with pleats on both sides and the foot. It also has an expensive looking detail with the matching green border that I did not see in the picture. Could not be happier and since it is machine washable, you can't beat it.
I really expected more from Tommy Bahama, but this comforter was cheaply made, looked and felt like a 30 dollar comforter, yes, that bad! This comforter looked like it would not last a year with light useage. I'm not sure what people are used to when they write an excellent review, but I am not super picky and I couldn't stand it and I sent it back for a refund, which Overstock processed quickly and painlessly. I highly recommend Overstock, but not this Comforter.
I was so excited to get this comforter set because I finally found a pattern I loved. I always wash everything new before putting it out. I followed the laundering instructions to the "T". When it came out of the dryer the padding inside was shrunk and bunched up and looks horrible. It won't lay straight on the bed. I would not recommend this due to poor quality.
This looks beautiful as I was expecting. However do not wash this item as per the instructions that it is washable. Since I have dogs that sit on it I felt the need to wash it. The middle layer of filling moved all over the place and I could not straighten it out. It needed ironing after drying so I did my best with that. I can still use it as I tuck the edges into the bed board so you don't see the uneven mess. I really like the way it looks but do make the mistake of washing This is a dry clean only product!
Be super careful when washing as fabric is delicate. I am always conservative but with a non agitator type washer, the fabric ripped on a second rinse on a spin delicate cycle. Now this was a King but the washer was a jumbo. As the fabric is not perfectly smooth, I was able to mend with perfectly matched threads across the leaves-but if you are not handy with needle and thread, you may want to think about the King size and only wash on delicate. I have the option of a top (non agitator) or front loader and next time will use a front loader. In any case, the fabric, though beautiful, is delicate.
I have owned this comforter for a year now and I love it. The quality is wonderful. I painted my room in Sherwin Williams color--Restrained Gold and it is a perfect contrasting match. I bought pillows that match that didn't come with the set and the whole room just pops! I wish I could post a picture, it is so beautiful!
