I really like this settee/bench - despite the listing error. It is listed and described as being velvet and that fact was one of the reasons I purchased this particular piece of furniture. (I wanted something a little more sophisticated and feminine for my office seating instead of a traditional pair of chairs.) The fabric is microfiber. There is no way in any one's imagination this could be velvet and that was disappointing however the rest of the settee's features make up for this and I can always have it recovered or have a slipcover made should it bother me enough. It is very comfortable. Nice hardwood frame, springs instead of just a bunch of foam on wood, and the color (just as described - a dusty gray purple - my monitor image was pretty accurate) is perfect in my office and it is the perfect fit. It was fairly easy to put together with the only issue being the back legs marked incorrectly - once I figured that out and swapped them it went together easily and quickly.
Very happy with this settee. It is exactly the color described (deep purple-grey). It was pretty easy for one person to assemble. It is very comfortable. Soft but solid support. So far it is holding up well to daily use and the occasional cat claw.
