Cushions came smushed in a small box. Had to set them out for a day to get them to lay flat. Very thick! Thicker than anything I saw locally. Very comfortable !!! The background is black not navy. Called customer service and asked about color , but they did not know what color they were prior to receiving order. I have them on white wicker and they look sharpe. Will not show dog hair or stains. Very tropical looking. Would do it again !!!!!!!!!
