I ordered this bedding set because I wanted something bold & really nice for our guest room. I had seen it in other bedding stores & online but the price on Overstock.com was the lowest! The bedding set is very pretty & has kind of a sheen to it which gives it a luxurious look & feel. And the black graphics are kind of raised, like felt or velvet. You'll love this set! Oh, and I put the comforter in the dryer for a few mins on medium heat in an attempt to smooth out a few wrinkles. But my dryer wasn't large enough so it didn't really work. However, it was pretty easy to run a medium temp iron over it after I put it on the bed.
