I chose this pillow to accent my bed and coordinate with the Sean Jacobs "Sea Mist II" canvas print also from Overstock. I must say, the two look great together. Color is a Deep turquoise color with a satin type fabric that reminds me of the "cool stuff" on the edge of my favorite childhood blanket. Some things I did not expect: 1) the dimensions were differnt from the description- my pillow measures 7.5 inches by 12.5 inches- so very thick, like a fat tire. I think it's totally cute and have fun rolling it off the bed at night. 2) the fat 7.5 inch edges of the pillow have a pinch pleated or "pin tuck" design on the them which is really pretty and goes so perfectly with my pin-tuck duvet I bought from another popular catalog website. It would be nice if overstock had a picture of the pillows edge. 3) the reason for one star off is that two of the pleats on the edge had popped a thread and required a bit of sewing to put them right. Since I presume this popped pleat problem will persist, I have purposefully pared the scorre back a peg.
The pillows a beautiful and add a nice pop of color to my living room. They actually look larger in person than in the online photo. They are nice, thick pillows and appear to be made very well.

Color was much darker that in picture, more of a dark teal color. However that wasn't the worst I bought 2 pillows and had them about a year and the first six months the one had the button pop off and without the button man was it a hot mess, then six months later the next pillow had the same issue. I would not recommend this pillow if your going to use it, sitting pretty with no use... perfect.
First of all let me say, the color, design, and feel of these are AWESOME. What I didn't expect is that they are about 7 or 8 inches thick. They look like really chic semi-tracker trailer tires, which is sorta wonderful. However, I ordered 3 for my California king bed, and they don't lie against the other pillows well. They stand up on their sides. I ended up just stacking three of them by the bed as if they were a modern art sculpture that ended up being about 3 feet tall, My interior decorator friend asked "what they heck are those things anyway?" (in a good way). I love them, but if you just want something to throw on the bed or couch, they might be too thick. However, as I said, they are awesome, and I may order more in different colors and make some even funkier sculpture out of them. I live in Palm Springs, and we are all pretty competitive about our decor around here, so the fact that they got a decorator's attention, and he started thinking of ways of making them into art decor says alot. :)
This pillow was exactly the size mentioned. It is well made and goes perfect with the accent pillows on the bedspread & matches the crushed silk drapes. Well priced item also. Thank you OS! My bedroom looks high class without breaking the bank.
