I am really happy with this purchase! I bought the duvet cover in the Grey color, and it's exactly as pictured. It has a nice subtle sheen. The fabric has a nice weight, but isn't too heavy - just as expected for 400 TC. It was as soft and smooth after washing as when I took it out of the package, and it retained its color without any fading (I followed the washing directions exactly). It's the perfect size for my oversized king down comforter. I love climbing into bed and covering up with this. Wish I could've bought the matching sheets, but unfortunately they don't come in the color I wanted. The only drawback I've found is that I washed it twice to get the smell of the manufacturing chemicals out (in our brand-new HE washer), and I could still smell them.
