We have had a white down comforter for years because I liked the simplicity/neutrality of it and never quite found anything I was smitten by. I wanted to have a "pulled-together" master bedroom and searched everywhere I could think of (Pottery Barn, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohls, Anthropologie, Macy's, JCPenny's, you name it!) looking for just the right bedding set. After reading so many positive reviews and hoping that this would look just as the picture, I ordered the Madison Park Eastridge Natural 7-piece King-size Comforter Set. I just washed this and put it on our bed tonight and I LOVE it! It is exactly as described and colors look the same in the picture (at least from my monitor) as they do in person. I was concerned (after reading some reviews) that I needed to order the California King size vs. the King size for our King bed. I even placed an order for the Cal King and cancelled it within hours to order the King size. Thank goodness! The King size fits perfectly! We do not have a mattress topper or anything like that--just a standard King size mattress. I think it looks great with our sage green walls and black wrought iron bedframe/nightstands/bed bench and black wood furniture. Definitely looks luxurious! The underside is soft, while the top of the comforter is a polyester (think satin sheen without the softness). If you're looking for a bedset that is neutral, but adds just the right touch to your bedroom, don't waiver--you won't be disappointed! The throw pillows just complete the look!
