This is a very very nice pillow. Love the velvet back and stripes, gives it some depth. It is cozy yet elegant on my couch. I think the down insert could be an inch larger to give in an overstuffed look. I am going to use the pillow cover and my old pillow insert so it can have the overstuffed look I am going for. The color is very nice. The background is more off white or tan really. I have been looking a while for this style and color pillow so very happy to have bought this. I would suggest going for the lower priced insert like I did as the down could be slightly larger.
