There were a few threads that I needed to cut, but other than that, this set is perfect for the $. I highly recommend this set to anyone. I purchased it for my master bedroom and I wish I had a picture to share of how nice it goes with my furniture. This set has a very expensive look. I know you wont be disappointed with this set. I have a queen bed and I purchased a king, I just like the additional length that I get since my bed is rather high. But a queen would have worked just as nice. This set has the WOW factor. The Dark Chocolate Brown is Dark Chocolate Brown and the underside and complementary color of sea foam is sea form. The picture DOES NOT do this comforter set justice. OverStock is always my 1st stop when shopping for a Comforter Sets.
