I was disappointed when I pulled it out of the box. The fabric is soft, but looks a little cheap. The stitching is large and cheap-looking on the edges. The scale of the pattern is too large for my taste. So large, in fact, that it makes the duvet appear more masculine in person. Online, it looked feminine and flowery. In person, it looks more modern and more like giant coral. The queen size was also too small for my queen bed. It didn't cover the sides.
