Purchased these for a vacation rental loft with 4 twin beds. The design pattern is nice as are the colors and the solid brown fringe. Unfortunately the shams are pricey so did not purchase them. I think a brown leather pillow that is embellished with turquoise and silver conchos would add more of an interesting contrast then all matching pillows. I took the bedspreads out of the package and put into the clothes dryer to try and remove some of the lint. They are 100% cotton so that is to be expected. I think that chenille always brings back a feeling of comfort.
