In full disclosure, I opened one flap of the box and saw that the bedding was mocha... not "taupe" and closed it back it. The box is labeled Mushroom and the manufacturer only makes this in 2 colors: lavendar and mushroom. So, I guess that means that mushroom should really be taupe. And their version of taupe is really more like mocha (light brown).
We order this comforter set due it's elegance. However, the tufts were not secured well and they began to "pop" even when I was gently making the bed for the first time. Additionally, the material is not soft and is itchy. I wanted to love this set but I will be returning it.
I think this comforter set is super classy and fabulous for this price point. I am really loving the purple for my bedroom, it looks great with grey. It is very warm also! I have a full matress and it fits juts fine on it. The bedskirt is also nice and stays in one place. The three extra pillows are of great quality and look very nice with the comforter.
Very pretty and I actually kept it when I should have sent it back. It was obvious that someone else had owned it before me and then had sent it back. It didn't take me too long to figure out why. All of the stitching comes out every time you make the bed. My mom spent 5 hours reinforcing all of the stitches or I would have sent it back. It is very pretty though and I get lots of compliments on it.
This set arrived and I immedialty put it on our bed. It is gorgeous! I kept going in my bedroom and staring at it and my husband was just as impressed. He stills says how much he loves it. It also fits with room to spare on our King sized bed. I got a great deal thanks to Overstock and their coupons!
the comforter is beautiful but it didn't go with the color of my room. i love the color too much to repaint. the comforter set is gorgeous and the pillows were so cute! the taupe really is a lot darker than the image. held it up to the wall and it was even darker. also, there is an odd gold metallic glow to the set when you move it back and forth in the light. the lining is super soft but the outside is a little itchy. i WOULD recommend this to a friend. it is a gorgeous set and so many pillows! great for the price. other than the itchy, there is no problem with this set.
The comforter was lovely but much to large as I ordered a king instead of a queen as queen's have been to short. Color was nothing like shown and I was looking for a comforter the color of the picture. In the purple and lavender family but this comforter I'd call between a dark brown and a burgundy. It didn't work with any of my accessories. But that has been very rare as ordering $11,000 in a short time I've been 99% happy with the products, the employees and your policy in general. Thanks, Carolyn
This comforter looks beautiful, however the tufting comes undone so easily. This is in our guest bedroom, so it isn't used on a daily basis. The first time someone sat on the corner of the bed five of the strings pulled out and the tufts became undone and the material flat in that area. It just doesn't hold up.
The color is great and it's warm but should be used for show only. When making the bed and pulling up the comforter, the the threads break apart which creates the tufted look. So far, it has not torn the material but I've been very careful with it.
I LOVE the dark purple color. It was exactly what I wanted. The quality is very good, though you have to be careful pulling the comforter across the bed because it's heavy and the sewn tufts can be pulled apart. I have a few that came undone, but I think I could sew them back up just fine. If you lift the comforter before pulling to one side, there won't be that pulling and they won't break. The fabric itself is high quality. I don't expect it to wear out anytime soon. The pillows are great too. I like to set up the bed just like in the pictures--it seems so fancy!
I loved the set when I saw it online, the set was purchased for us as a gift, and i was not as impressed when I saw it in person. The material is scratchy, but I kept it because it did look very nice. The stitching comes undone very easily, even just making the bed! The first time I washed it, I read the tag to make sure it was machine washable and dryer safe...followed heating and washing directions....AND THE COMFORTER MELTED IN MY DRYER! maybe from the large size, as it was a king size, but material had to be in play as well, as I have never had that problem with other king size comforters. I'm lucky I caught it when I did, there were large melted holes all over it, and smoking when i took it out. The company will definitely be hearing from me!
Overall, I very much like the style and color of the bedding. The only negative comment I might make (similar to another review I read) is that when you pull on the comforter to make the bed, you almost feel like the stitching is coming out by the gathers / tufting. So far, it hasn't come apart, but the feel is a bit flimsy in that regard. The only way I found to combat this is to pull on it from underneath, not from the top. But given the fact that there are limited choices for full size comforter sets, I feel it is a fairly good value for the money.
I was so excited for this bedspread to arrive--it's the perfect color! But, when making the bed for the first time, when straightening the bedspread, the tufts break immediately. The tufts are literally held together by a thread and break no matter how carefully you straighten the comforter. There is no way this comforter will last. I should have read the other reviews before purchasing!
I love this comforter, very elegant... I got Taupe, even though the box says its color is mushroom, a little darker than taupe, pillows were great and shams, i just wish it had Euro shams as well.. I have a cal king over sized mattress, and it did fit, but it would of been nice if it were a bit bigger, i like things more oversized.. But I like it alot..
