The color was VERY light and shiny (almost pearly) and the chevron pattern was slanted and not even with the horizontal of the chair; would have driven me nuts to look at daily. Did not assemble so cannot comment on the comfort. Easy return process, as always!
The loveseat itself is really quite pretty; however, it is not the most stable loveseat and really can only accommodate one person. My roommate assembled the loveseat and said that it was rather difficult to do and that the pieces had to be forced into place. However, it is, visually, a great addition to the living room!
