This duvet set was my first purchase from Overstock, and was bought to replace a similar Pottery Barn set that was covered in holes from being washed many times. At first I was hesitant because of the cheap price and fairly low thread count, but after reading the reviews I figured I had nothing to lose. I washed the set right out of the package, and when I put it on my bed I quickly realized what a great deal this was. It is beautiful quality, extremely soft and nice looking! The stripes are very subtle but just enough of a design, and the pillow cases are a great extra where I would usually have just had the simple ones that come with a sheet set. I absolutely love the feel of this set and would highly recommend it!
