City Cotton Bedspread, Ecru
I already have a similar throw which has been used to cover one of the sofas downstairs so my whippet can lay in splendour on it. It has been regularly laundered, treated rather badly considering our dreadfully muddy weather and still comes up looking like new. When I saw this one I really did think that we needed two, and I have absolutely no doubt that since the weight of the throw, the pattern, and everything about it is similar to my existing one, then it will at least have ten to twenty years of hard wear. What else can one ask. I like a tidy clean sitting room with a touch of elegance and dirty throws don't come into the equasion.

Absolutely beautiful, great design and retro feeling to any bedroom!
Bought it to replace my 16 year old late bed spread, also from John Lewis.
The cotton is soft and the design has the hand-made look.
Would recommend it to any one who is in for the high quality, affordable prices retro look. The size exactly as stipulated in the website.

Does not disappoint!
Gorgeous! I bought two if these to cover my new cream sofas and they manage to combine being stylish and homely. Lovely soft cotton, but has a durable feel to it. Design is quite traditional but it fits in well with my contemporary furniture. I love the fact they are washable too.
If you are looking to use them to cover sofas, be aware of the sizing, as they are very generous. I bought king size to cover a large sofa frame, when double would have done. Great product thank you JL!

Excellent as a throw
When I purchased this item it stated that it was not intended as a throw, but this is what I bought it for. It is really big and fits my large sofa perfectly. It is wearing so well and I am so pleased with it I purchased another which I cut in half and made two chair throws, although I would'nt advise doing it unless you were a good needlewoman. I am really pleased with these throws and do not think I could of bought any better and they look really good. Thank you John Lewis.

Smart, cozy and durable
We were glad we had spent a little extra as this is an excellent item. The woven pattern makes it smart and pretty, while being a subtle colour. It's soft and very useful - we are using as a sofa throw, too.

Looks and feels good and is BIG!
I wanted a summer bedspread made in a non-shiny and non-slippery material. There was little choice in any shop - it seems that bedspreads are very old fashioned now - but this looks really good and was exactly what I wanted - smart, neutral, but with some texture for interest. The large size means good coverage and no fighting! Not yet washed but it looks as though it will wash well without snagging.

This is just what we needed for our kingsize bed. The colour blends in well with our light coloured soft furnishings, and the weight of the bedspread makes it ideal summer or winter. It is well made, with the subtle pattern enhancing the bed. Delivery was very quick too.

Purchased the bedspread to cover two single beds - it is exactly what I wanted, the colour and quality just as expected and a very reasonable price.
