This is a very comfortable futon mattress. The chocolate brown color is exactly as pictured and the microsuede fabric is of good quality. The description says this has a 10 inch loft, but after measuring at several different spots, the most I could come up with is 8 inches (that's why I rated this with 4 stars.) Not a problem, though. My daughter and son-in-law visited for a week and found that it was like sleeping on a regular bed. I was hesitant to order a futon mattress online, but I'm glad I did - saved me alot of time and trouble, and it worked out great!
