I could have loved these shams as I do my Cumulus coverlet if the shams were larger. Because of my pillows the shams are smoothed out.
We were staying in a Marriott in Lumberton, NC on our way down I-95 to Florida for the winter when I noticed this unusual searsucker-like cover and shams on the bed. It was so unique that I was compelled to inspect the label to find out who made the set. As soon as we arrived at our new condo in North Palm Beach, I ordered two "Cumulus" king shams and bed cover. We have a modern upholstered bed where you tuck the cover into the sides and foot and the thin, sheet-like Cumulus cover this makes the task a cinch. Our bed looks as though it belongs in Architectural Digest. No kidding!
I have washed it twice in 105 degree water. That is as hot as I can get. In my washer. Your commercial site says wash at 140 So am thinking I should go to a laundramat to get it to poof more . I need the fold lines to poof out and not show . However the more it poofs the smaller it is. I need an extra inch and a half on both sides. Plus the pillow cases are not the same white as the cover. Love the look but it is not hotel quality or finish Please send me suggestions
I should have known that the quality in hotel bedding is almost never duplicated for retail. This is an example. The directions are, basically, add hot water and the puffs appear. That is true; however, add the pillow insert and the cumulus effect disappears. The effect is NOT WOVEN in; thus, the effect is as elusive as a cloud is substantive.
We appreciate your feedback. The fabric is woven in a way to create the textured effect with some elasticity, so it will straighten out a bit if pulled taut. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Thank you for shopping with us.
Even my husband , said he loves this , summer weight, soft , finish touch for our ergo bed! The pillow shams , just finish off the clean, fresh look we wanted!
