“ Brand: Clif / Product Type: Duvet Cover „
Browsing online at Amazon.co.uk one evening I came across this attractive looking bed set at an even more attractive price of just £21.99. I didn't need convincing that this was a bargain purchase. Indeed a few minutes later, it was in my online basket and 2 days later it was delivered to my house.
So what makes this bed set such a bargain?
Well, for your money, you are not only getting a double quilt cover with two matching pillowcases, you also receive a matching cushion cover and also a quilted runner.
The only concern I had prior to purchasing, was that maybe the quality of the material or stitching would not be very good and that it wouldn't look as attractive as it does on the stock photograph.
However, I decided to take a chance and purchase the set, as I could always return it if not happy with the quality or if there were any faults with it.
I have seen similar sets to these in shops and also online where they are often advertised as 'bed in a bag' and sold packaged in clear plastic with a handle on the top. However, the ones I had seen previously were considerably more expensive than this set.
This duvet cover set is sold by Hallways Household Textiles, via Amazon, but I believe they can also be purchased via their online shop on Ebay.
I was pleased by the quick response and delivery after making my purchase, which arrived well packaged just two days after placing my order. The postage and packing was just £1.99 which I feel is very reasonable.
Opening my parcel, I could see that the quilt cover set was exactly as advertised. The brown shades are a mix of silky and satin material which is 100% polyester. The reverse of the quilt cover is cotton, which ensures you stay cool and comfortable when under the covers.
The size of my double quilt cover set is as follows :-
Quilt Cover Size 200 x 200cm, Pillowcase Size 48 x 74cm, Quilted Runner 50 x 240cm, Cushion Cover 45 x 45cm.
I could see no faults with my bed set. The stitching was intact and the whole set looks quite luxurious when it is on the bed. It has small sequins stitched around the leaves on the pattern and the quilted runner feels quite thick and lies comfortably across the bed, draping nicely over the sides.
I suppose you can place the runner at either the top or bottom of the bed. I thought it looked more attractive placed at the top, just as shown on the photograph, so that is where I placed it on my bed.
The quilt cover and pillowcases fitted my standard double quilt and pillows perfectly and the quilt cover fastens easily with poppers along the bottom.
I already had a couple of cushions on my bed and I simply removed the cover from one of them and placed the matching cushion cover from this set on the cushion.
Whilst the quilt cover feels quite light, the quality is good and it really looks lovely on the bed. I think if I had seen this on someone's bed before I bought it, I would not have believed it had only cost £21.99!
The entire set is machine washable and I am happy to report that this set washes fine and looks just as good after washing, with no fading or colour running. All the sequins have remained in place and there are no loose threads. Therefore you can wash the entire set with complete confidence.
I am really happy with my purchase, from the speedy delivery to the quality and how it looks on my bed. £21.99 is a great price to pay for a bed set such as this and I can recommend this bed set to anyone.
