The picture is deceiving because it looks gray and white. The description states that it is black and it is black and white. From a distance it appears dark gray and white. The reverse side is a black and white print. It is well made and a nice weight (thickness). Although I would have preferred gray and white, I feel it was a good deal.
It is good quality, not very heavy, which will be good for summer use. I have a Queen sized bed and hate having to deal with the bed skirts and tucking in sheets. So I ordered a King size and the sides drop perfectly. I purchased two kind size pillows which fit the shams. It is a perfect solution to this problem. It is reversible, but I like the lighter side one better.
I have a pale blue bedroom with a black iron bed w/ black knobs on my furniture, this quilt looks "expensive" in the room. I happen to find sheets that match the quilt (lucky me) I have gotten so many compliments on the room, I was thrilled....looks very high end! I have purchased many quilts for Overstock and have never been disappointed. I do read all the reviews first and then go from there. I love this item, you can't go wrong with "Laura Ashley" products....LOVE IT!
The picture on the site makes the quilt appear to be grey more than black like it is described. Happily it IS black and off white. The reverse side is black with mini dots or squares. The quilt is very generous in size and a nice weight for our hot Texas climate year round. We are very pleased with the look it gave to the bedroom and the quality of its construction.
Floral pattern is much wider. Back appeared solid dark grey which I WAS looking for. It is actually black and white pattern. I had already bought two other quilts that the color was totally different and finally I just gave up and will keep this and order new sheets but won't buy them at overstock. Tired of shipping back and forth and paying shipping. Not worth the hassle.
As has been written before, this is not gray which I would have preferred but still love the black. It looks so fresh and clean and is wonderful with our black iron bed. I would not give it a 5 star as it is not as large (for a king) as I would want. Other than that I am satisfied with the quality and the beauty of it. I coordinated it with gray sheets and black pillow cases on 2 pillows and white pillow cases on 2 pillows. Stunning!
I love this quilt for my king size bed. It is long enough to go over the sides of the bed, some king size bedding does not. I have 2 small dogs that sleep in bed and this does not show dog hair. I have washed this several times (monthly) and it is holding up so well, no fading or wear. I would buy this again.
I'm very happy with this lovely quilt. I like the checkered design on the reverse side - it's a nice contrast, when turned back on the bed. The white of the background is a shade between ivory and white, but that works for me. The quality is great. Everyone loves it.
I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT AND WAS SET ON A BLACK AND WHITE THEME FOR SUMMER. AFTER REVIEWING ABOUT 10 DIFFERENT PRODUCT SITES I FOUND THIS SET. IT IS EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE. IT IS GIVING ME A NEW SUMMER LOOK W/O SPENDING ALOT OF MONEY. IT IS RICH AND CRISP LOOKING ALL AT THE SAME TIME.IT IS A TRUE BLACK AND WHITE SET THAT CAN BE REVERSED FOR A DIFFERENT LOOK. I WOULD DEFINELY RECOMMEND OVERSTOCK.COM FOR AFFORDABLE BEDDING AND WILL PURCHASE AGAIN
Quilt was good quality but either they sent me the wrong one or it is totally not as pictured.Mine was black print not as pictured and black dots on the back. I wanted the quilt as shown so be careful if you want the quilt in the picture. I did not remove it from the package since it was going right back but the fabric was nice and a good weight.
Love Laura Ashley quilts. They are not heavy quilts. This quilt isn't for cold weather. I have a blanket under the quilt. The floral pattern is dark and the white background is not that shocking bright white. I like the contrast. I love the dark pattern on the backside too, which is also along the trim. I have purchased similar style quilts from pricey department stores with the same quality but double the price. I would purchase another one if need be.
I'm always looking for cotton blankets, quilts, etc. This quilt is perfect. I love the weight - just right for fall weather. The black & white pattern is stunning. Really gives my bedroom an updated look. I am VERY pleased with my first purchase from OVERSTOCK. COM! I will be shopping here again. Price was right and it arrived days earlier than stated. Thanks!!
Wanted a black and white toile print for twin beds in my guest room. The room is very pale blue. The quilts are as described. The description clearly stated the color is black not grey. I am sorry that I didn't purchase the full size. My mattress and box springs are new and deep. I washed the quilts on cold and tumble dried on low. If you have a clothes line I would recommend that method of drying as I think that the quilts shrunk a little. So consider ordering up a size particularly if you don't want to purchase dust ruffles. Other than the size issue which I should have thought about, the quilts look gorgeous and for the money I am very pleased.
The quilt in the picture doesn't look anything like the actual item. The reason I purchased this item was because the reverse side looked gray, it is actually a black and white check. I have purchased other Laura Ashley quilts and this one doesn't compare to the purchases made elsewhere. I am very disappointed.
