My current comforter is worn and I wanted something simple and comfortable to replace it for winter. These cover and shams did not disappoint. I would consider it a "basic" set (I've had other duvet covers with tie tabs inside to keep the comforter in place, this did not have them). I couldn't have been happier with the color representation. I purchased the gold/orange and normally the Colors are difficult to match but these were represented well. I find it very comfy!
