04/06/2016Beauty, Value and Great Color!
I read all the other reviews before I bought this set, just to see if it looked like what I was seeing in the photos to others. It does.... and, it is even more beautiful. True, the fabric is somewhat thin, but it is meant to be a spring/summer bed set, I believe; and if it were heavy, no one would want to sleep under it... it would be HOT. This set is designed to be for show primarily, and folded down at the foot of the bed.... it was never meant to be used like one would use a standard coverlet, or duvet, or quilted cover, or even a blanket. As such, it is perfect and exactly what I wanted. The sheen on the fabric is beautiful and almost looks like a shantung or dupioni silk. The color I chose, blue, is a true dusty aqua, a light powdery blue with a little bit of nile green and dove grey shading to really make the color pop without being bright. The band of fabric around the pin-tucking is perfect to frame this style... I did not like other sets that had a band at the head and foot of the comforter; it looks too "choppy" to me. This band merely cradles the pin tucks. And the overall style is feminine, without being frilly, or childish.
Construction is very good, especially for the price. The pin-tucking is strong and adds a bit of "pouf" to the look; if this spread were made of silk, it would cost well over $1000, I suspect. And... there were (7) pieces to the set! Again, for the price, a gorgeous bedding set, and it came in a plastic storage bag that is breathable so it can be used to store linens. Also, did I mention it took all of (3) days to get to me?
Truly, DESIGNER LIVING keeps surprising me with their pricing and quality for that price....I think I'm in love with them!
