I purchased this chair to go in my gray/purple color schemed bedroom. It was very easy to assemble (although chair legs were mislabeled, but easy to figure out anyway), and looks great. The color is very similar as shown. The purple is very subtle, more of a gray with purple undertones, which I liked. Definitely not a saturated color at all. The cushion is very firm, so not a comfy chair to lounge in, but sturdy. Since I am using this in a bedroom, it will most likely be used less for sitting on and more for piling clothes on! Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
