We bought this for our cal-king size bed and we're pretty happy with it overall. My two major complaints are the width and the material. It is sufficiently wide for a cal-king but could do with another six or eight inches of width. For a king (which is 4 inches wider), I think you'd definitely wish it was wider. The length, however, is fine for a cal-king, so it should be more than sufficient for a king (which is 4 inches shorter). The outer material is very handsome, not rough but not exactly soft either. However, the backing material is smooth and soft. For us, this set is primarily decorative; we have nice soft sheets, pillowcases, blankets, and a down comforter to provide softness and comfort, so having a handsome set like this to finish the bed off is exactly what we were looking for. The bed looks great, very handsome. We're pretty pleased.
