I was looking for new bedding for my 14 year old son. After many years with a plaid that didn't wash well and was faded, we wanted something fresher. This comforter is perfect! The colors are crisp and the fabric has a smooth, comfy feel to it. The colors work great with my son's medium/dark wood furniture and dark brown leather desk chair. We paired it up with taupe window panels and are very happy with the end result. Ordering and shipping from Overstock.com was a breeze.
