Purchased 2- sets for my boys room - aged 15 & 20, aesthetically the bed sets are fine and are a good compliment to the room in general. The comforter however is not black but more of an off black/grey and the fitted sheet, is thin and of low thread count. The sheet color and pillow cases are very rich and true to color as described via the image. I would highly recommend adding a blanket to this bedding for the winter as both the sheet and comforter are very thin. Overall a very good value for money.
