Like other reviews say, the throw pillow that is white in the picture actually comes in black. I think it looks better than the white, personally. This set is beautiful in real life, just like in the photo. It is classy looking and has that nice satiny feel to it. The only negative is that, like other satiny comforters, it tends to slide off the bed easily. Even though it is not all that thick, it still is very warm. I'm sure in a cold climate you would need an extra blanket or something, but for cool San Diego nights in January it is perfect on it's own. I hemmed and hawed about whether to order the queen or king size based on the other reviews. I have a queen sized bed, but on top of my mattress I have a featherbed AND a memory foam topper, making my mattress very thick - something like 17 inches. I am glad I ordered the QUEEN size. It is not too small at all, it fits my bed just fine, and a king would have been ridiculously huge. Remember, this is not just a comforter - it comes with a bed skirt (a king bed skirt would look AWFUL on a queen bed) and pillowcases (king sized pillowcases are HUGE) too! Overall, I am very satisfied. This product is exactly as I expected it to be, and I'm very glad the negative comments in other reviews did not prevent me from buying this product or convince me to buy the wrong size.
I agree with some of the other reviews in that it's sort of thin although, it is what I expected. It's very nice but I definitely caution those who have a thick queen bed to go for the King size. My mattress is about 16 inches thick and just covers it at the bottom. The shams for the king are HUGE so make sure you buy really long pillows for them. You could probably fit 2 standard size pillows in one sham. Overall, it's a great product and I'd buy from overstock.com again. :)
I expected a much better quality than what I got. I found a similar comforter at discount retailer for 49 and expected more from this product. The pattern only goes two thirds of the way up the comforter and you cant see that in the picture. The back side is a cheap looking white polyester. You have to fold it over a certain way to make it look good. I tried to do that and it showed way more of the sheets than it should have. The picture also showed it hanging over the edge looking like it is bigger then it actually is. The queen barely fit my mattress and I have standard queen, it's not even a pillowtop.
I bought this set 3 years ago! Absolutely beautiful! It has held up great we have a small dog that sleeps on it so I have had to wash it. even after washing it in my washing machine over 6 times, I do not put it in the dryer I hange it out to dry, no bunching up at all love it. This spead is on the lighter side so great in the summer or just use a blanket and great for the winter to.
This set is beautiful. But it started ripping at the seems very early in its life time. I have patched the comforter up many times! Also it is annoying the fact that its shiny makes it very slippery and it slides off the bed all the time. I also took other reviews into account and bought one size larger which I would recommend.
I purchased this set probably over 2 years ago. I loved it. I just redid my bedroom and was looking for a new bedding set, since I did just put a tear at the seam in this set. I almost purchased it again. I bought the curtains with it, when I bought the set, and I am still using them. Great value for price!!!
This is a nice set that looks great. It is a bit thin so added a nice quilt underneath for extra warmth. It matches perfectly with http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Lush-Decor-84-inch-Geometrica-Curtain-Panel-Pair/5482578/product.html ***curtain panels purchased from Overstock (see link) in Black and Silver. It's a nice addition to our 12 year old daughter's bedroom re-do!
This is a great comforter if you are looking something that just LOOKS nice! There is no stuffing at all, no warmth what so ever. We had to put our old comforter under this one to keep warm. It is not made the best either, ripped very easily at the seams. I would not buy this comforter again, nor recommend it.
This comforter set looked great when it came. It still looks ok, but even the slightest amount of moisture from our skin seems to stain it. Also, as others have mentioned, the stitching is such that it looks like it won't hold up much longer.
The beding looks excellent on a platform style bed. The material is pretty slippery/slick but worth the buy. The white pillow shown in the picture actually comes in black but I think it looks better that way anyway. Great buy for the price!
This set is practically perfect. The silvery grey is stunning, shiny and beautiful. It looks so expensive I often get asked who the designer is. I love the fact that unlike pure satin the comforter doesn't slide off the bed in the middle of the night. It's cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I highy reccommend this bedding.
