This is a beautiful, expensive looking & feeling duvet cover. Fabric has a beautiful sheen & soft drape.. The duvet & sham (I got twin size w/ one sham) are well constructed. Others have noted the willow green being a bit different from what is pictured. I would describe it as a light, sagey green that is a bit brighter and less grayish toned than many ¿sage greens.¿ It is a nice, neutral color that would go with just about anything. You will need to press duvet & sham/s before using as there are significant creases from being folded, plus you¿ll need to press out the flanges that are shmooshed & wrinkly so they¿ll be nicely squared off. The shams are the type that open across the middle of the back (unlike some others that open on the side and have buttons). The hem stitching on the duvet goes on 3 sides (not across the top, where pillows would cover it anyway) of the ¿top side.¿ The top end is where the button closure is The underside is plain, without the hem stitching; there are two potential looks with this duvet ¿ with or without the hem stitching. When I need to wash mine, I intend to launder it in warm water and will always dry it on my drying rack (away from sunlight to keep from bleaching it by the sun). Doing so will prolong the life of it greatly, as being beaten in the dryer is hard on all things. This is my first experience w/ a duvet, but I think I¿ll love it because I love the flexibility of putting a heavy quilt inside or something light for warmer weather, and being able to launder the outer cover. I just read last week that vapors from dry cleaning are potentially unhealthy, so I love being able to wash the duvet cover and getting to protect blankets from dust and body oils, etc. I will note that getting the blanket & quilt inside is quite the chore, but I don't mark it against this duvet: I think it's just the nature of the beast, as they say. Getting the blankets down in there is quite a task. There may be an easier way to do it, but I struggled quite a bit to get mine in. Also, if a person is looking for that crisp, perfectly neat look, I don't think a duvet cover would be a good choice for them because it just has that slightly rumpled look. Sort of European. I am fine with it, but just want to make that point to someone who has never used a duvet cover. I put my willow duvet w/ an ivory colored bed skirt and it looks beautiful. Understated elegance.
Looks good, the hemstitching all around is understated but elegant. Just 2 in too long and too wide for my comforter.
The set arrived with an odor, so I washed and dried it immediately. Filled it with a light weight 90x95 inch Natural Comfort White Down Alternative Comforter purchased elsewhere and, with just a little smoothing, it looks fine. The cover feels smooth and soft enough. The material is thin. As others mentioned, there are no ties or buttons inside to secure an insert, but so far it is okay. On the other hand, the pillow cases are useless as they are way too short for my 25x16 inch memory foam pillows. I do not think they shrank in the drier but were small to begin with. Although the listed dimensions suggest otherwise, these pillow cases must be for the shorter “standard” pillows. Finally, the white set I received looks like a light ivory next to the bright white Echelon Home Echelon Laguna Quilted Cotton Euro Shams I also purchased here. I can live with the difference since I plan to layer the duvet anyway. I may donate the pillowcases since they are not returnable now. I plan to use the duvet cover, but on its own I do not consider it to be all that luxurious.
I was looking for all-white accessories and bedding and looked around quite a bit before I bought this duvet cover set. This was definitely the best value for the money. It feels very luxurious and has buttons one one end so the comforter does not move around and can be adjusted. There is detailing all around the comforter and it looks very elegant and pretty. The high thread-count makes it feel very luxurious and it looks great on the bed. The pillow covers also looks great.Definitely recommend!
Ever since I got married, I've been on a mission to create a comfortable, warm bed for myself and my husband. Since we live in the DC area and it gets quite cold during the winter, I knew we would need to buy a down comforter soon. I wanted to get a duvet cover to keep the comforter clean. This set was a natural choice because I also have the sheet set of the same design. I was concerned that the king sized cover would not fit the comforter I purchased, which is 102x86 inches, but it fits fine and in fact there is a little more room on the sides. I was pleased to find sewn-on button closures instead of snaps. One thing that I wasn't expecting is that the shams which are included are king sized pillow shams (in hindsight I should have known they would be). Like the sheets, these do wrinkle fairly easily (more noticeable on the pillows than the duvet cover) but can be ironed out with little trouble. This cover is very soft to the touch and has helped me create the perfect, relaxing, luxurious bed I've wanted. Could not be happier with this purchase!
The Full/Queen size is 90"x90". My comforter was about three inches from the edges all the way around. If you don't mind having to pin your comforter in it's fine. The fabric was very soft.
I purchased the white twin duvet to cover a white comforter that is 90 x 68. I was thrilled when I read that this cover was 90 x 68. I just received the white twin duvet cover today and the package reads 68 x 88 :o( It looks and feels to be of nice quality. I will see if it fits the comforter I have this weekend, and if not, I'll have to return it. If it does fit, I will write another review letting you know how it washes.
I was disappointed that Overstock didn't have most of the color options pictured in stock when I ordered (I originally wanted moss). Of the four colors they did have I chose Willow and am very happy with it. The color looks much nicer than the picture. It's a little greener and with more of a silk-like sheen that doesn't show-up well in the picture. It really looks great and is easy to clean. Cat hairs brush off with just your hand, and my Siberian Husky who is still accustomed to sleeping in the house after a recent surgery, jumped up on the bed with wet, dirty paws the very first day. A wet rag (didn't even need soap) and a few minutes later you couldn't even tell she had been on the bed. My only complaint is that I ordered the full/queen sized duvet/sham set and either the manufacturer mismatched the shams and didn't catch it during QC or the set is supposed to ship with one full-sized pillow sham and one queen-sized sham that's about 1-2 inches larger. If they're going to consider full and queen the same size, which they're not, they should at least plan for the larger of the two sizes. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and would recommend it to others. This is my first duvet cover, but it seems of high quality and good value for the price, based on what I've seen shopping around. Hope that helps.
You MUST buy these sheets! Get rid of the old and in with the softest most wonderful sheets and duvet set ever! First of all your bed will look like something out of a magazine and did I mention how soft they are?! My reccomendation: Buy neutral colors, I reccomend either white or ivory. White is my personal fav- and you may think White! No way! I have kids and pets, not to mention a husband. Well, ladies, white can be bleached back to beautiful, what are you going to do with a dark orange or light blue? Also, if you use any facial cleanser or treatment with benzoyl peroxide it will bleach the color right out of your pillow cases, even if you rinse it ALL off (just a tip) Enjoy!!!
I washed this item before using and it did very well. I loved the quality and the color. It was, however, a few inches larger than the comforter I placed into it. I was surprised by this, as I know it is a TWIN size, and that is what I ordered. However, I am using it, after ironing, and it is beautiful, and feels good.
The Duvet set I recieved is beautiful and I love it! (sateen is the best) the only recommendation I would make is the opening on the back of the shams is 2 inches from the edge, thus they gape open. I would have this moved to the middle of the back of the shams.
This duvet cover looks and feels luxurious. It is easy to put your comforter inside due to the wide, buttoned opening. This item is a quality purchase and I couldn't be happier with it!
I bought this item as my other duvet cover ( which i bought from overstock years ago) began to disintegrate and fall apart. I was long overdue for a new one. This duvet I got is solid white. I immediately noticed the cover itself was not too thin or cheap feeling. I wanted something soft but not something that would end up ripping and falling apart like my other one. Also it always annoyed me that my comforter would slide around in my old duvet and the buttons ripped and bulged. This one does not have the problem, as it is very snug, secure and discrete. The buttons are made so that both sides of the sheet are facing inward so you don't see the button when put on correctly. The material is not the softest. Truthfully it reminds me a bit of a rougher organic cotton for whatever reason. It is slightly rough to the touch of your hand. I washed it as soon as I got it and still notice it. I expect it will get softer with each wash but it's not rough enough for me to really care or my sleep to suffer ( it sure is warm though! ). I just noticed the difference in texture when I first got this compared to my older Egyptian cotton duvet- which i paid twice as much for and I like this much better. It's seems well made. When i first got it i went through all the edges inside and cut off any hanging threads but I did notice it seems well made. I will probably end up ordering another just so I have two - maybe of another color- just so that when I'm washing one I can use the other. I'm really happy with this product especially since I paid half of what I thought I'd end up paying! For the money you can't go wrong. I'm a guy, there's no real distinctive design that I notice or care about. Except for a square stitch about 3 inches from the outside edges. Its hardly noticeable and doesn't seem like it will rip/ tear in the future. The pillows that came with are nice but most of my pillows are a little too big for them.
Very simple & soft. Has a rustic/shabby look. It is very lightweight. It fits my super sized king comforter perfectly. The hemstitch is actually a few inches in, on the cover itself, rather than being the stitch in between the cover and the lined edge/hem. I didn't expect that, but it looks nice. It washes well and does not need to be ironed.
The duvet and shams have a nice feel to them, and the color is true white, not off white or cream. One complaint is that there is no size info on the label. I ordered Queen size, which I think is what I got, Shams are slightly larger than a standard pillow, but not as long as king, or as wide as Euro. Sier info would help when sorting laundry.
I have been an Overstock customer for quite sometime and have always been pleased with my purchases. Recently, I purchased the Hemstich 400 Thread Count Duvet Set. The color was rich, the fabric soft. I pre-washed the duvet and pillow cases prior to use. If you are planning on putting them in the dryer, make sure to pull them out promptly once the dryer cycle is complete. I left mine in the dryer for a while and when I pulled them out, the fabric was extremely wrinkled. However, once I inserted my quilt inside the duvet and laid it across the bed in a matter of a couple hours, the wrinkles had disappeared! I will continue to purchase from Overstock; 1) because of the quality and money-back guarantee; 2) because of the value...(+ free shipping) you really can't go wrong!
I bought this duvet in light blue, the color is exactly what I expected based on the photo. There is a stitching design about 2 inches from the edge around the top and sides and I didn't realize it when I ordered it. The stitching design does not negatively impact the look or feel of the duvet cover - I honestly couldn't be happier. The material is very soft and not too heavy. Now that I have this duvet cover, I love my down comforter even more!
I love the color and feel of this duvet cover and feel it was a great buy! Just a few notes: the light blue has a lot more color than what shows in the online picture. For me, that was a plus. The shams are more like pillow cases than shams and I've put other shams behind them. Again, for me, not as issue, but for others who might be considering a buy.
Upon opening the package, the product looked a lot like the picture. Had a sateen look and very soft. I thought I made a great purchase. After one initial washing, looks and feels very different. I don't care about the sateen look so much but it's not very soft; almost rough for 400 TC cotton. The color still looks great but this fabric also wrinkles VERY easily, even if you pull out of the dryer immediately. Don't know about you, but I am not going to iron a duvet cover. Also, the length of the duvet cover will accommodate a king comforter but there's no extra and does not hang over the end of the bed. Last duvet cover was about 4 or 5 inches longer and that made a difference, though I knew before I bought this one was shorter. Overall, this is average and probably a decent value for the price. But I would not buy again.
My previous duvet cover and sham set had finally worn out and I wanted to replace them with something very similar. I like solid colors and 100% cotton, so this set fit the bill for me. I bought the white color and when it arrived, I was a little concerned because the packaging said "sateen". I don't care for that shiny sateen look but in fact there was no sheen on the fabric. Since it's 100% cotton, it does wrinkle, so I guess you could iron it if you have the time and it would probably look really good. The wrinkles don't bother me much, they do smooth out a bit with use. I like the way that the shams open at the end and not in the center like my previous set. I would prefer a slightly wider border on the shams but that's just because I liked the look of what I was previously using. The quality seems good but I haven't had it long enough to give an accurate review on longevity. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and feel that this set was good value for money and it looks nice.
