I'm very happy with this slipcover. The color is a rich, chocolate brown. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to fit on the couch. It washes and dries very well, which is very important when you have kids and pets. It did not fade or shrink in the wash/dry. The fabric is very soft, yet durable.
I ordered this as a result of a search for "slipcovers that cats won't scratch." My cat did not scratch it, and doesn't even like to sit on it, so all the posters were right about micro-fiber faux suede being cat repellent. I like the fabric and look, too, although on my leather sofa it's kind of hard to keep in place. On fabric sofa it would be great.
