i absolutely love this cover! i bought 2 of them in the natural color which was pretty close to the pictured swatch (a creamy light beige color although not yellowish). They come as two pieces; a big square to smooth over the top and fold over the sides, and a pleated skirt that has an elastic band to keep the top in place. Very easy to put on. The fabric itself is somewhere between linen and muslim texture. It will need some attention with an iron (or a run through the dryer with something wet) to take the wrinkles out. Just so you have some idea, my ottoman measures 29L x 21W x 20H. The elastic still has "give" to it in order to accomodate a bigger ottoman.
