I was prepared for this to be a pretty dark color compared to the photo, given what so many of the reviews say...but actually, mine looks like a very light beige and is nearly white. It's not terribly far off from the depiction in the photo, but certainly a little bit darker. I think maybe the lighting in your space makes a big difference on the color effect. At any rate, I really like this little sofa. I have a small apartment and I wanted something smaller than a standard couch, but bigger than a standard loveseat. This works perfectly! It also looks very modern and is reasonably comfortable. Assembly was super easy. I did it myself in under an hour. My only complaint is that some of the drill holes didn't quite line up right and I had to leave out one of the dowels. Doesn't seem to be an issue, though. As for the velcro bit in the back, I don't think it's nearly as bad as some others have stated--just pull the fabric down tightly before you smooth down the velcro bits and you can't even tell. I'm happy with my purchase, overall.
