I was so excited to find this set, thinking it would be perfect for my teenage son's room. He, too, loved the colors and thought it would look great....and, it did....until we washed it. I am a stickler about laundry....always wash like things together and pay attention to the temperature being used. I washed the quilt by itself in cold water. Unfortunately, it came out with faded colors looking very "worn". I was extremely disappointed and really can't do anything about it now. My son is continuing to use it and it's "okay", but I'll end up needing something different before long....especially if we have any guests over.
When I first took this out of the bag, I knew it was of poor quality by the material and should have shipped it back right away, but it matched the room and I thought I would give it a try, but after the first time I washed the shams, I knew it was one of the worst comforters I had ever purchased. The shams are now a completely different color from the comforter having faded significantly in the wash. Save your money!!!
My son picked this set specifically to go in his room,and we were both very pleased when it arrived. Initially it was perfect and the colors matched the pictures online very well. However after 1 wash it faded almost 3 shades. The burgundy red is now a pinkish shade and the once navy blue is a dingy blue gray color. I washed it in cold as directed, but it still faded that much. The complimentary pillows no longer match the comforter and pillowcase which both had to be washed. This is my first overstock purchase and unfortunately I am very disappointed with the quality of this product.
The set looked good when I first got it--thin quilt, but went well on my 4 year-old's bed. But, when washed for the first time as directed on the label, not only did it fade to a pale/pastel version of itself, but the material also frayed badly at the edges and looked "picked" thoughout the quilt. Luckily, Overstock was able to take the item back because there is no way I could use this again.
The quilt is a little short (bought the queen one) but did fit (barely). I loved the colors until I washed it. I washed as directions indicated but the red bled to the white a bit so it then looked dull. Bought over quilts that I am super happy with though :-).
This blanket should not be called a quilt. The material is shiny on the blue side and rough on the other side. I was buying this for my 13 year old son. It seemed great for a teenager plus we live in Texas so its hot and he wanted a thin blanket. I do not recommend this set to anyone and then I had to pay shipping both ways.
Beside the price, the quality of this set is A1 - purchased for my husbands' taste - it's suitable for a man's room. It was like getting two sets for the price of one - one side is nicer than the other so it's nice to have a change. Not too heavy - just right for the warm (hot) weather we've been having in PA!!!! Overstock is the place for great bargains that do not look like bargains!
I LOVE this lightweight "bedspread". The colors are exactly what I wanted and deeply rich. The extra pieces are a wonderful touch added to the bedding ensemble. It would be appreciated if the bedspread was a bit longer on the sides, but I've never had a bedspread that was perfect. uy another one for the upstairs bedroom but haven't been able to find it listed on Overstock. I will keep searching for it! Living in Southern California rarely requires heavy blankets so it's been a blessing for sure!
