we ordered the dark walnut, the wood color looks more like the picture of the "natural" wood. the quality control is a bit questionable as it came a bit dirty - a piece of tape stuck to the wood, and two areas where there seemed to be smudged grease. assembly instructions are not very helpful - more of a try to figure it out on our own deal. luckily there aren't too many pieces and it only took me about 20 min. however, the chair is quite comfortable, looks great assembled, and a MUCH better price than the comparable chair at XXX.
