The picture gives this comforter set more credit than its worth. The material is much shinier than it is depicted. And I think it makes it look a bit off. I decided to keep it anyway since it was on sale. But I def would have returned it if it were full priced.
The colors are nice, but the comforter itself is very small. I have a king size bed and it barely covers. If I pull it down to cover the foot of the bed, there is about 1 foot not covered at the top by the pillows. Also, the sides are not all the way covered. It may work if you have a queen and buy a king size comforter, otherwise it doesn't fit well.
Bought rug at the same time. Good thing I ordered a queen for standard size bed because it barely fits the way I would like it to. Quality is very good. Did not need the European shams, but other than that, was as shown and great quality.
Oh wow, I feel like a queen with this set and all the pillows. I didn't even know what European pillows were, but having found out, immediately sent for some to go in the cases and now reading in bed is an even greater pleasure. The material is silky and lovely. I ordered king size for my queen size bed because I dislike bed skirts. I used the bed skirt to make valances for my draperies so that they went with the comforter set. So now I have a beautiful, puffy, silky comforter, a myriad of pillows and I feel like royalty. Has anyone ever heard of a breakfast pillow? It has nothing to do with breakfast, but there's even one of those. I was disappointed at first that the red was more burgundy than that depicted in the ad; but I've decided I like it better.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this bedding. The colors and design are exquisite and i'm so glad it's machine washable. It's more than a good deal for the price. I only wish it came with more pillows. But overall, i'm very satisfied.
