Portofino Matelasse Bedspread
Beautiful Matelasse but shrinkage is an issue
Like other reviewers, I ordered the King coverlet for a Queen bed to allow for some shrinkage. I have washed the coverlet twice in cold water, drying on delicate. The size stated on the website is 110" x 118" and the coverlet is now 88" x 96". The style and value are excellent; however, because of the significant shrinkage, I rated the quality as poor. I would recommend hanging to dry if you can or drying only partially in the dryer. The shrinkage is very disappointing.

Brick is closer to a rose color
Colors are hard to describe, even with the best photography. I ordered a sham in Brick to see if this set was going to work with a duvet that has rust, rose and brown paisley border on an ivory background. This looked rose next to my duvet.
This shade of Brick is a cross between seasons, not quite rich like autumn, but not as pale as summer. It definitely has a warm cast to it, but too rosy to be the color of a brick, in my opinion. The effect in my room was rose both in full daylight and in lamplight.
The quality of the piece is lovely and worth the price. I just want to offer my experience in case that might be helpful to someone else shopping for just the right color.

This bedspread was exactly what I was looking for
This bedspread was exactly what I was looking for but even more. The look is what I wanted and the quality was even more than I could have hoped for. I ordered shams at the time and have returned to buy some more. Thanks!

I bought the King and it's huge! I think it would fit a California King.
I'm scared to wash it though, as some others have said it shrunk. But it's the perfect color - more muted yellow than wheat, which is what I wanted. It's not as light-colored as in the photo. It's the perfect summer weight when you don't want your heavy winter spread on the bed. I'm very happy with it, as that color was hard for me to find anywhere else for the price.

Great fabric quality
This bedspread is beautiful! I just washed wand dried it and it shrunk up just enough to bring out the matelasse pattern....using the dryer makes the pattern sort of puff up.

Lovely design and a firm weight.
I do love this purchase. I did read the ratings before I bought, so I bought a king bedspread even though I only needed a coverlet because the comments said it shrinks a lot. Yes it shrinks quite a bit but it is now perfect. as a coverlet on my tall bed with a deep mattress. The wheat color is really more gold than I would have liked, but it works. The weight is wonderful. Not flimsy and not too heavy.

Good product. Good company.
The wheat color works well with the other colors in the room. I purchased a bedspread because coverlets are always too short, but was hoping I could shrink it some and it did when I washed it in hot water and dried it on hot. It's now perfect. Very pleased with the product.

portofino bedspread is lovely
Ordered white. It is a lovely white - like milk. Design really shows and puffs out. Heavy, good quality.
Does shrink when washed. I ran it in a warm wash and hot dryer since I ordered it larger in order to accommodate shrinkage. So order 6 inches too wide so you can wash it.
I am going to buy another for the guest room. Very happy with it.
