Really love the light turning on with finger touch rather a remote or switch. It is like you are transferring the current from your finger tip to the lamp. An awesome magic lamp, I love it. I love the stand design too. It is simple to assemble, no screws or nuts to tighten. If you like, you can paint the stand with whatever color you like." β€”o^V^o

    reviewer's bed with the navy blue bed set on it and white tree branches all over it

    Promising review: "This duvet is so much more elegant in person. I can't believe the price. It looks like a $200 duvet. The fabric is also very comfortable, like a crisp (but soft) cotton sheet. I also love that it's reversible, because you simply roll it down a bit and you have a bed that instantly looks neat and layered. The covered zipper is also a great detail, so much better than the annoying buttons that most duvet covers have. At this price, we thought this would just be our temporary duvet cover until we found something we liked better, but it has turned out to be our permanent duvet because it's truly beautiful." β€”S. Blonder
