I would recommend the duvet cover to a friend with a caveat. The cover is very stylish, but the material is not cuddly at all. It is a polyester, shiny material that doesn't feel warm. But, if you are looking for a sylish cover-it fits the bill. It is well made and the pillows look very nice with it. I use the pillows in other rooms because they match my decor. They are made well, but the filling is just polyester filling-- not a high quality filling. I like the look of the set and am using it in a spare room for guests.
