This ottoman/bench is really elegant. The darker color shown is what I ordered and it looks just like in the picture, a navy/gray. It's really stiff, so I wouldn't use it to see on, but I have it in my bedroom for decor and to throw clothes on, etc and it's a really elegant, modern yet classic piece. The fabric is a thick linen, really great especially for the price. As with most other Safavieh pieces, legs come inside (on the bottom of the ottoman in a zippered compartment) and are screwed on in less than 2 minutes.
