Originally ordered the mushroom taupe ottoman, but exchanged it for this golden olive one. The mushroom color had purple undertones. This golden olive blends much better with our beige sofa. Although some say the ottoman looks like a large gold nugget sitting in the middle of the room... I believe it does not !!! The olive does have gold undertones, the color is more a natural blend of olive and brown/gold. Color does appear more gold durning the evening, but that is probably due to the lighting in the room.
I'd say this was definitely more on the golden side than olive. I love the color though. It's so rich and lush. The ottoman definitely looks more expensive than what I paid for it. There was a knick on the leg which kinda annoyed but other than that, it's a fabulous piece and will go well in my living room!
