This is a high quality set. The cotton sateen is luxurious and soft. The duvet cover is generous in size with a button closure on the bottom. The cording around the duvet gives a "finished" look. The look can feel masculine with the darker paisley and stripes or more feminine as you turn the mid-size pillows over to the flowered side, as shown. This set comes with such a generous supply of pillows that I actually used a few of the smaller pillows as couch pillows in the bedroon to bring the look together. Note that you have to purchase a comforter to fill the duvet cover and euro size square pillows (28 x28) to fill the larger shams. The smaller shams are regular pillow size and the the smallest pillows come filled. I am VERY happy with this set and the price is amazing considering all that comes with it. As always, very quick delivery from Overstock.
