The off white color looks almost creamy, it's not a shockingly white color. It looks great against my light grey walls and white molding. I was unsure of a velvet curtain but it's very elegant. Love them and am ordering more for my dining rom.
These curtains are beautiful and look very luxurious. They are very true to the color shown on my computer. They are a light color, so they are not truely "blackout." However they do block approximately 85-90% of light, and darken a room enough to sleep. They are very well made and hang gorgeously. I would definitely recommend these curtains.

We are very happy with these curtains. The velvet is very soft and they are well made. With the insulated lining they keep our whole house warmer. I was concerned about what "off-white" bought online might look like, but I couldn't be happier with the color. They are just off-white, kind of a "winter white", not beige or yellow-ish or anything else. They have a nice wide (3") rod casing but also look very nice and go up easily with Overstock's Curtain Rod Ring clips. The width of 100" per panel makes them great for a bay window or sliding door.
Drapes hang nicely and seem to be decently made, but mine arrived with small black smudges on them. They are definitely more ivory than white which wouldn't have been a big deal, but when light hits them they get a yellow-ish tinge. Not blackout, more darkening. I returned them.
The photos, if I succeed in loading them, will tell all. Seams and corners were sewn so crooked that the curtains really could not hang straight or even. If one intended them to drape on the floor, they might look fine. But hanging just shy of the floor, the appearance was visibly poor. /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00384.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00385.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00386.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00387.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00388.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00389.JPG /Users/jeffreyteuber/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Masters/2014/05/03/20140503-155934/DSC00390.JPG
The material is very nice and with the backing they block a lot of light. Be aware that even though these are extra wide, they are not one piece of fabric, there is a vertical seam in the middle. This causes them to hang a little funny in that spot, which is why I gave them 4 stars. I hid it in a fold and it works fine. The color is a little more creamy than the photo, which appeared to have a more gray cast to it online.
It took a good deal of time to find extra wide curtains, black out, without those grommet holes in this color. I wouldn't have chosen velvet but it adds a nice texture to our room. Finding anything else this size and style were all twice the price of these.
I already own these curtains in grey for my master bedroom and off-white in my guest room. I bought these for my master to change the look a little. I live in a loft and have ginormous windows and these curtains are really good blocking the sun. I've purchased from overstock periodically for several years and I've always been disappointed with their packing of my order. This was no different. I ordered 8 panels and these are very heavy drapes. 5 panels were in one box and 3 in another. I couldn't even pick up the 5 panel box and had to ask a neighbor to bring it up to my condo. The box barely survived the shipping which is ridiculous. So, love the curtains but not impressed with overstock.
These are beautiful and feel luxurious. Other reviews stated they were too heavy, but you just need to buy a curtain rod that can hold them up. I have two sets of these on one rod and they have not came down. they look amazing love them. Color is perfect.
Simply exquisite! Keeps the arctic blast out and hang beautifully in my living room. Pricey but totally worth it. Keeps 98% of the light out (has a lot to do with positioning and forget the noise - there is none to speak of) Love these; superior product!
We looked high and low for curtains that fit our wide sliding doors (100"+) that open to our backyard. Like: thermal lining, good weight velvet, off white color (creamier than pure white, more muted and ash-tinted than cream). It hangs well. Each panel does have a seam that runs vertically down the middle (i.e., the panel isn't one large piece of fabric, it's two pieces sewn together). Might look a little nicer without this seam, but this isn't terribly noticeable.
