These chairs are so interesting compared to others I have seen. From afar they appear to me a greyish brown color but up close you can clearly see the texture of the tan and blue fibers. Very pretty and the fabric is soft. The chairs did take about 20 min each to put together which wouldn't have been so bad but we bought 6. They were packaged very well and arrive shortly after I had ordered undamaged. Matching them with a black dining table.
