Very beautiful. And I love the way it closes, don't have to worry about smashing little fingers. Very big. The color is darker than I thought but I still love it. It's firm enough to sit stuff on it. I actually bought it so that if our 1 year old Grandchild does not fall off sofa and cut her head on the regular coffee table. Hopefully she never falls but if she does it should help if she hits her head much better than a coffee table.
