John Lewis Florentina Throw
I bought this online on the basis of excellent reviews and was so glad I did. The bedspread is fantastic quality, beautifully finished and the colours are glorious. Brighter than illustrated but not garish. It fits my kingsize bed easily with a generous overhang on each side. There are so many colours in it it would blend in with any colour palette. In terms of weight I would say that on summer nights it would be plenty warm enough on it's own with just a top sheet. The underside is also a lovely fabric, not plain as I expected . The only problem I can see is that it probably won't fit in my washing machine which has a larger than average drum, so it looks like a trip to the launderette. All in all I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

Shame about the lack of pillow shams!
Just bought the throw - exactly as the pic - looks good. Shame about the lack of availability of matching pillow shams - as detailed in the pic on your website? If you can't provide them then you oughtn't to show them in the sales pitch. Noticed shams are available for some other throws but not this one ...such a shame - would have been a valuable 'add on' sale.

Quick delivery, really good quality product. Colours perfect. The reverse of throw has such a good finish that I can turn it over - so actually I have two throws for the price of one!

I hesitated to spend the money on this throw but decided to treat myself and am so glad I did. It's beautiful and makes the bedroom decor look complete.
The size is generous on a double bed so would suit king-size too.
It is very well made, thick and firm and the colours not at all harsh. It has a lovely vintage look without being twee.
If this throw appeals to you, do buy it. I'm sure you won't regret it.

Just as described
The quilt is of excellent quality, and the colours blend together beautifully. Ideal for that vintage look. I found that it fitted well over a double bed. It just touches the floor.
Very quick international delivery.

Worth waiting for
I waited five months for this throw to come into stock, and when it did I ordered it and I was so pleased with it. It fits my king size bed perfect so if its in stock and you are looking for a lovely throw, please order it you will not find another one like this because I tried everywhere.

A thing of beauty!
I bought this based on the feedback from previous reviewers and I was not disappointed! As well as being very nice to look at, it appears to be of good quality as well. Fits in perfectly with the current trend for 'vintage', without being twee.
I put it on the spare bed yesterday evening and have popped in at least 12 times since then to admire it!

I ordered this throw online and was surprised that it looked even better in real life! This really is a beautiful throw and well worth what I paid for it. Really lovely!
