This is a striking comforter set. It looks aboslutely great. The black and white with silvery gret accents goes great with my black and white decor. The comforter is pretty light weight. It's not one of those pull it over you snuggle in types of comforter, this is truly a duvet. It holds wrinkles easily, but running your hands and smoothing it down does the job from a distance. This is not a heat holding set either. One morning I was getting ready for work, and sat down on the comfoter wearing just my underwear and got quite the start about how cold the duvet was, a big transition from my heavy and ever warm Eskimo acrylic mink blanket. Like I said, this is a set for form rather than function. The pillows are mismatched and don't really sit well with each other. The sheets are adequate. I got several oversized shams and bedskirts that I haven't used but they are a matched set with the rest of the bedding.
