This is the main statement piece in my living room and I absolutely love it! At first, based on the pictures, I was worried the background would be more taupe than grey. Turns out it's a perfect light shade of slate grey – and it looks amazing behind the chartreuse paisley pattern. In my estimation, it's very well-made. As a creative professional who wears jeans to work but still needs grownup furniture, it's a perfect blend of elegant and playful. Don't be afraid of the bright chartreuse color, it gives the room a striking pop of color but isn't overpowering at all. My only mini-gripe is that the interior storage space was a little more shallow than I expected – but still a great spot for blankets, books, magazines, laptops, personal tech accessories, etc. If grays and yellow-greens are among your decor colors, I highly recommend!
