Purchased the gray suede-like material & it looks exactly like it does in the stock photo. I figured it would go w/everything so I'd be safe & I was right. WELL worth the money...even if I had paid double, i'd still be impressed with the quality & look!! It ships in 2 separate packages which were very secure, although they are quite heavy. It took me forever to unpack & assemble by myself, but was pretty simple & the directions were very good. Due to some reviews I read, I was praying I wasn't missing any pieces but unfortunately they did give me 1 too many caps that go on the end of the slats instead of 1 more middle connector piece I needed. I was able to improvise a bit & will call the manufacturer to send me the correct part (very minute inconvenience). Love, love, loving it!! Gorgeous piece of furniture! Can't go wrong. It honestly feels like I have a new mattress due to the way the slats are designed (QUALITY, SOLID, smooth wood slats) & the altogether sturdiness of the structure itself. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is bc of the missing piece since they should be cognizant due to it obviously being an issue w/multiple complaints.
