The chairs look exactly as pictured. They are described as "tan" but are more of an off-white, light beige color. They also have a zipper on the back of the chair that runs from the bottom to the base of the curve on the back. It is not operational as the end must be sewn into the chair itself. It is concealed by fabric but it is still noticeable. If you are looking for something completely solid on the back then these are not it but they do look nice and well built and for the price, I have not found anything better.
