My husband and I are both so pleased with this set. It is even more beautiful than the picture. The colors are deep and vibrant, the textures are shiny, and the patterns so elegant. I am so impressed with the quality, especially considering that it came with two shams and two decorative pillows. The quilt is lightweight, which is as we had hoped. We are in a climate with very mild winters. The only drawback is that the topside fabrics are not as soft as a cotton quilt. I suspect that they will soften somewhat after laundering. I have not washed or dried this quilt yet. Currently the fabrics on the topside have more of a ribbon-like texture. The size is just right for our king bed, as it drapes a few inches past the top of the box springs on all sides but the top. I already had a coordinating dust ruffle, so that was not an issue. The shams fit our king pillows perfectly with no sagging or wrinkles. Did I mention that it is gorgeous?!
