This is my second Anthro quilt. I took my first quilt to a laundromat to wash, and it clumped up in patches throughout the whole quilt. As it got older the clumps got worse and the material began to tear.
However, I was able to wash THIS quilt in my own front-load washing machine! I have a Queen, so it barely fit in the machine, but I was able to wash it with a delicate cycle and cold water. I think the key this time was that I did NOT dry it. I hung it outside and it was dry within 3 hours! Zero clumps! So happy with this quilt and both shams.

I absolutely LOVE this quilt. I hemmed and hawed over it for over a month because of the price but it is soft and fluffy and beautiful. The only thing is the quilt is listed as a duvet so I purchased an insert but it is not in fact a duvet, so I'm not sure why they listed it as one. Other than that, it fits perfectly, goes wonderfully with my room and the colors give my room such a good aura. All in all completely worth the price!

I have been looking at this quilt for months before buying it. I've gone back to the store to,look at it as we'll as adding it to my shopping cart before buying it.
Pros: The picture online/catalog doesn't do it justice. The design is lovely and the colors are beautiful. The material,is very soft and surprisingly warm for a quilt that's not heavy/bulky. It worked out well on its own for spring in NJ which is quite chilly, with an additional blanket underneath in winter I can see it replacing my down comforter.
Cons: the biggest is the price for the quality. I used a coupon/drove out of my way to save on shipping and even then it was a big splurge. The material,is the biggest concern. It is very soft and delicate with the stitching appearing loose in areas. I have a big dog that does like to sleep on the bed and I've so far gotten a throw blanket for her to sleep on in hopes of not tearing it. I can also see tearing it while tucking it into the foot/head board. It's also dry clean only and since I do let my dog sleep with me I do like to wash comforter at least monthly. I'm hesitant to wash it on delicate at home.
Overall: I've only had it a couple months and while I still adore it will have to see how well it wears with continued use. I would recommend someone go see it in the store before purchasing the bedding online because while it is gorgeous bedding the price is a factor.
Larger than I originally thought, but I love them. The bright colours are fun, and so is the pattern on the back. Have not had any issues with quality.

I bought 2 Euro Shams for my queen bed. They look gorgeous. The color is deep and I plan to enjoy them for a long time. The texture/print remind me more of batik than traditional quilts, but I love them nonetheless.

A beautiful companion
to the matching quilt. It is large and soft and luxurious. Make sure to buy an appropriate pillow stuffer to make it just right. This quilt and pillow will be a part of my family room for cold night snuggling.
I adore both my Rivulets comforter and Rivulets shams. Only standard shams were available and I still need the king. I am so confused about color. I saw a gray sham at the store, but it was dark. I saw a light gray on line that I loved and thought I wanted, but when I saw how dark the gray was at the store, I was disappointed. I ended up getting the ivory which is a little dangerous at my house because I have three dogs. I was told it was washable, but now have read it must be drycleanned, so confusion has been the keyword to this impulsive purchase. No other comforter set could possibly excite me after seeing this one, but I would have loved a light gray more than Ivory. I love how well it is made and I love the feel, the look. It was meant for me. It is very pricey.

If you are going to invest in the Rivulets Quilt, spend a little bit more and get a set of these. They really complete the look!

I bought these shams to match the beautiful quilt that I had purchased at Anthro. The whole ensemble is so soft and cozy. I look forward to going to bed every night so that I can fall asleep looking at it. Very well made of good material. I would highly recomend this product!L.
This bedskirt is very light and delicate. It is gorgeous and went perfectly with my Lazybones Lucia quilt in grey. I like that it has slits in the corners. This made it work perfectly with my four poster bed.

I love the bedding! The skirt, however, has a slit on each corner, that opens farther apart than the photo shows. It leaves a space open to see my ugly metal bed frame. I wish it closed a bit more.

Color is fantastic
I wanted a bedskirt without ruffles or pleats. This one was perfect and very elegant. I ordered the rose and the color is beautiful.
I loved this duvet from the moment I first saw it. I was very hesitant because of the price, but it has been worth every penny so far. The underside is very soft and comfortable to sleep under, and the beautiful print and gold embroidery bring the perfect elegance to my junky rental bedroom. The only thing I am concerned about is the gold embroidery. There were a couple loose threads upon arrival so I am wondering how long it will take for the threading to come undone. I've been very careful not to set anything on my bed or do anything that could cause the gold to unravel or get the ivory dirty. So far there have been no problems. The fabric also seems to wrinkle easily. Other than that, this duvet is perfect. I have it paired with a dark navy blanket and sheet set to contrast with the ivory, and my curtains are deep navy/indigo with a gold applique that really work well with the design. I am in love! Such a great investment.

This duvet is stunning. The gold details are not overwhelming and add a great accent to the neutral tones of plum/gray and cream. The top layer feels durable, but still soft, and the under side is a silky purply material (it feels like someone sewed a 300-thread count sheet to the bottom of this duvet).
I loved the way this duvet looked online, and the pictures are definitely an accurate representation of how the product looks in person.
The only thing that would improve this duvet would be a room with darker walls (so this is unique to my own situation). The guestroom I currently have this blanket in has light egg-shell walls. A darker backdrop, or even a dark headboard would really do this this duvet justice. Lighter walls run the risk of making the duvet look somewhat washed out.
My mother bought these shams along with the matching quilt as a gift. When I had originally showed her the bedding, I wasn't sure about these standard sized shams as they are not as bright and colorful as the quilt or the Euro shams. But when I received them in the mail, I was very pleasantly surprised. They are beautiful and the perfect compliment to the quilt.
And FYI, these pillows come as a set of two.
I ordered the entire bed collection in "blue" and I absolutely love it! I have always admired Anthropologie's bedding but have never wanted to spend the money. I am so happy I did though and all my expectations were met. Definitely recommend this quilt.
