These blinds are beautiful installed. The Mahogany is a good dark real-wood color. Not quite as dark as Ikea's brown-black furniture, just for reference, but looks good with it - a bit redder. Blades are thick and move well up and down, open and closed, with the strings. Came without the main piece of the valance, but the issue was eventually resolved.
