. I was looking for something for our 20 year old son's room that was leaving his teen life behind (joined the Navy), and would reflect his new military life. This quilt struck me as something that could work with patriotic colors. It is a nice, medium weight quilt that fits the mattress well. It's not so long that it hangs down and covers most of the bed skirt. It is more of a coverlet, I'd say, than a full sized quilt. The colors are great, but it really is hard to tell online what they are, fully. The lighter blue isn't solid. It's a blue/white gingham, and one with some stripes in it as well. There is also a khaki stripe with navy thinner stripes in it, and the "white" isn't a true white, but more of an off-white. That was the biggest thing that is different from the picture, I'd say. I was expecting it to be a brighter, crisper white. The red is more of a rusty red. Other than that, it's a very good quality. It is a quilt that makes a statement, for sure.
Son wanted a Clemson room and I didn't want to spend a ton of money redoing it. This comforter is great!! The picture does this no justice. True Clemson colors and perfect for a Clemson bedroom for a teenage boy!
Most of the reviews here are laughable. Here's the truth: The color of the orange/white/taupe patterned duvet is true to the color of the images posted on Overstock. The taupe color looks like more of a grey from far away and up close you can tell it is a light, green-ish shade of taupe. I was surprised how well it matches my green Jersey sheets from Target, although those sheets are a much deeper shade of green. The fabric is an amazing, soft polyester blend that you just want to cuddle with! This material is a YUUUGE upgrade from my 100% cotton duvet from IKEA. That thing was rough junk in comparison. I find no problem at all with the thickness of the duvet and I'm genuinely confused as to why so many reviewers are calling the fabric "thin". This is a duvet cover, not a comforter. You're supposed to put this around the comforter and the comforter is supposed to keep you warm. The little decorative pillows that accompany the duvet are awesome! They're mostly for decore, but they are pretty fluffy and do provide support. The buttons to open the duvet to slip my comforter in are like buttons on a flannel shirt and with the polyester material, seem like they could easily slide out of place. I wish they were snap buttons instead, but that is a very, very minor detail. The size is perfect for my comforter! Be sure to check the dimensions before purchasing since all comforters come in weird, different sizes. I highly doubt you'll regret purchasing this item. I am so in love with it!
This comforter arrived and I was not impressed. The material was a cheapish polyester and the yellow color was super bright and a yellow- orange base tone it was very very bright and did not look like the picture!
