Florentina© Matelasse Coverlet
Product quite OK, but returned because of size
The bedspread was apparently made for a more contemporary bed, i.e., one that raises quite high from the floor. Our bed is over 25 years old and sits much closer to the floor, which means that the Maltese Coverlet is cut much too wide for our home. Sorry, we really did like it, but couldn't over come the size problem.

great color selection
The design of the Matelassé is not as ornate as some that I have bought from linen source, but it's simpler pattern is very nice. I am using this one in the guest bedroom where we often take an afternoon nap or read.

This is a beautiful coverlet but small
This coverlet is soft but substantial. It washes well and holds its color. The only negative is it is a bit too narrow for larger 18 inch mattresses so it does not cover the sides.

This coverlet is gorgeous, and very generously sized for a queen, which is awesome for my very high bed. The only reason I gave it a "good" instead of an "excellent" in a couple of categories is that it is a bit on the thin side.

I love this coverlet and matching shams
I bought the coverlet and matching shams in navy for a King bed. The quality exceeded my expectations. The color is true to the way it is pictured. The size is perfect and provides good but not excessive coverage. I would classify the weight as a light to medium. It is perfect to leave at the bottom of the bed and then pull up if a little extra warmth is needed. It also gives the bed a sophisticated made-up look during the day. I have looked at the Matelassé covers for a long time and finally purchased this one when it went on sale. I am very satisfied.

Had to exchange King size bedspread for the Queen size because my bed was too low. Still waiting fot the Queen size to arrive.

Always a good buy.
I have been happy over the years purchasing twin matelasse coverlets and spreads to use as tablecloths. This Florentina Rio Red is a gorgeous deep red, just what I wanted for Christmas entertaining. It will fit my trestle table with about a 15" drop and will add lovely texture to the table. Best of all, it will launder beautifully. And these beauties never need ironing!

Just the right red for what I needed and great size for a king bed.
