Love the Design but Wears Fast I got this about a year ago and for the price I paid for it, I really loved it for awhile. I love the pattern and it goes with just about anything, which is nice because I change my color scheme a lot. The disappointing thing with this set is that it seems to be made cheaply and all of the threads on mine are fraying. It seems like every week I am getting out the scissors and cutting away loose threads, which is disappointing. Bottom line, I probably would not buy this again. While I still like it, I just wish that it hadn't worn so bad. I am starting to shop for a new comforter because I just don't think this one looks quite as nice as it used to. Was it the most disappointing purchase I ever made? No, but like I said, I probably wouldn't do it again. March 20, 2013
Mixed Feelings First things first, this bedding set looks great. It's sharp and contemporary and looks great in our bedroom. The material is also very soft, which is great for me because I loathe scratchy bedding materials. However, there are definitely some issues with this set which knock it down a few stars for me. As others have stated, the "Black/Gray" color is misleading. It is most definitely a Black/Taupe color so if you're buying this to fit a particular decorating scheme, think again. Also, the comforter was a bit lumpy when we bought the set 4 months ago and only seems to be getting lumpier. If it holds up a full year I'll be surprised. The biggest issue with this set though is that it doesn't breathe. I tend to be freezing all the time. I've been known to sleep under the covers with sweatpants, a hoodie, and socks. But this comforter makes me boiling hot. Even while sleeping in a tank top and shorts I end up tossing the covers off halfway through the night and often wake up sweaty and overheated. This is the first time in my life I've ever encountered this and it coincides to the first night I changed our bedding to this set. Even though I love how this set looks, I plan on giving it away because I can't handle the nightly sweats and interrupted sleep. November 13, 2012
Love it Love the material, it is so soft! The grey has a hint of purple in it, sort of like a gunmetal steel, which i wasnt expecting. Some of the threads are coming up I hope it doesnt fall apart November 6, 2012
Good for the money I think this is a good set for the money. I do think the discription and picture are misleading. There seem to be 2 color combos of this set that the company doesn't tell you about. Mine is more taupe/black than grey/black. When I fold my comforter down the under side is solid black where as in the picture it is grey. I don't know how the stuffing is going to hold up because it seems to be bunching up in areas already and we have had it for a month, but again for the price I can't complain. September 27, 2012
