I own a contemporary home and this fits in perfect! I bought the dark brown set and love it! It is micro suede texture so it has a "lighter" and "darker" I'll call it texture to it depending on which way the fibers are going. One thing to note, the sofa and chair have a black fabric backing - it is not the color of the sofa. So generally, it should have it's back up against the wall unless you don't mind having that black backside viewable. Very study - great price - I recommend!
