The color of the pillow is really odd. It is darker than off-white, almost beige... but it has irregularities in the yarn that are chocolate brown. Also, it does not go well with the gray embroidery color. The texture of the cloth is really rough for cotton. The down is as hard as a rock! They also retained the rumpled shape they got in transit. They are definitely not worth the price. I returned mine!
These pillows are well-constructed. The edges are clean and the zipper is one that is hidden, with an elegant slim zipper pull that looks good even when you do see it. There is a down insert, and the embroidery is even and nice and the design is centered on the pillow front. The only tiny complaint is that they are not soft like I thought they would be. I want to be able to lay my cheek on them, and maybe they will get softer over time. Maybe I just didn't know that linen would be scratchy, so if that's the case, this isn't a valid complaint!
I've given the pillow only 3 stars because the colors shown online (I know it can vary with monitors but mine is usually right on) does not match what it looks like in person at all. I bought the "Sea Green" color and online it looks like background is white and detail is a pale blue. The background is actually a dark linen color and the detail is med toned blue. More of a periwinkle colored blue. The pillow itself is pretty, nice stitch detail but the material is very rough and to me would feel too scratchy to have as a pillow used on main sofa and/or bed. It would work for a secondary room where it sits to look pretty and it's there for comfort. Just know that the background color is not white as it appears in photo.
These pillows are stylish and very high quality. This company makes it easy to wash these covers, as they zip right off, and whats great is the zipper section is very discrete you almost miss it. They are heavier than your normal throw pillow, so I'm guessing they will last for years. If you have kids, watch they don't play with these pillows as the design part (the navy colored part) can be easily frayed. Overall great product!
