I should have known better/should have asked because the ad indicated the colors were only ivory, orange, and olive if I recall, but the picture looked so dark that I expected it to be black (with orange, olive, and khaki). When it arrived, I opened the box to see that the main color was actually a lighter olive, but no where near as dark as the picture. I'm a little disappointed because I wanted it to be much darker or black. The fabric does not look high end, but the price was excellent, so I would rate it as four stars overall. This would be a great set for a college student or child.
