As the other reviewers mentioned, it is a cherry color more than a brown or black "expresso." The shade is made of a tweed light fabric, which blocks some of the light from it. Overall, it is a beautiful statement piece and looks great. It came in a box in 2 pieces. You do see the seam between the two pieces when put together.
