Rated 5 out of 5†by TulsaQualityShopper Vintage Matelesse Bedspread and Sham
I absolutely love this bedspread. It is lightweight and has generous proportions - perfect for our hot Oklahoma summers. The color is muted but beautiful.

These shams are easy to slip onto pillows. The color is true to the online catalog (Atlantic blue) being a touch lighter than colonial blue. I also bought the coverlet, and am happy with both. The weight is perfect for all seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5†by BeanInternetShopper A fan of the new khaki
The matelassť fabric appears to be high quality and is a versatile design that goes with contemporary or more tradition decor. It works especially well with our eclectic mix of furnishings and rugs. I am thrilled that the new khaki is a half shade darker than the premium flannel sheets in the 'sandbar' color. The sheets and matelassť shams are perfect together. My only gripe is that after ordering sheets from LL Bean over the years, I assumed that pillow cases (and shams) are always sold in pairs. I was initially dismayed to find that I had ordered only one sham. I'm ordering another, but in retrospect, I would have waited for a sale.

Love the more modern look of the blocks of Matelasse squares even though it's called "Vintage." The weight and quality are excellent, the shams easily lost their packaging wrinkles with just a few minutes in the dryer. We bought them, along with the matching coverlet, in Bay Leaf and found the color to be true to the website photo. We also bought the heavier cotton comforter in Bay Leaf for winter use and the colors match very well. The size of the shams fits our pillows well and there is a generous overlap flap in the back. You know how shams often have a very floppy edge that just won't stand up? Not these. The weight of the fabric combined with just the right width of the edge makes it stand up nicely for a well put-together bed. The look says Quality.

The workmanship is fine as is the color. However, the rim of the sham is limp and won't stand up on its own like it seems to do in the catalogue picture. I think I'm going to return the two shams.

We've been most satisfied with our recent purchases of bedding--including sheet set and bedspread and shams. The extraordinary generous proportions are wonderful. No more pulling and tugging to get the fitted bottom sheet on our new mattress. And the color of the Vintage Matelasse spread and shams was true to the color in the catalog. Would highly recommend L L Bean to others.

The shams match the bedspread perfectly. Can't ask for better than that! They appear to be very durable.

This fabric is wonderful! I washed and dried it before using. It looks luxurious, feels very soft as well as sturdy, does not seem to wrinkle. Love the little lined-pattern. Very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5†by consumeradvocate2 New Khaki color
I'm writing to confirm that the New Khaki color indeed has an odd greenish cast as one reviewer noted, like a green taupe. It's a shame this bedspread isn't offered in a neutral beige or ivory. I could use those colors. This bedspread is a dense weave, but not heavy, which is perfect if you like to top it with a quilt or coverlet like I do.
