I purchased this set and I love it. I had a problem with one of the shams that were damaged but they took good care of my problem and resolved in no time.darker and it has dark purple in it.. The only thing negative I can say is in the picture on the web site it looks a lot lighter. When I reveived it the gray is much darker and there is more purple in it than I thought. But the color I painted my room is light gray and it looks great. Nice soft material. Love it!
