They are a creamy white color, not grey at all. The legs are a cherry brown. I purchased one to see if I like it and ordered three more for my kitchen table. I have a glass top table so the beauty of these chairs shows thru. The nailhead trim is nice. They are comfortable. The seat seems be to a little short. The seat of my old chairs hit me behind the knee, these are about 4 inches above the knee. They seem to be sturdy. My husband liked them and they wash off easily.
