I am IN love with the ottoman. The color is exactly as pictured. I purchased the ottoman in sand and I must say that it goes perfectly with every color in my room. Obviously my furniture is not exactly the same color as the ottoman, my furniture is actually quite darker, but the color of the ottoman is so refreshing that it just brightens up the room without look like a sore thumb by not being an exact match with my furniture. Product is well made, not cheap. The cushion is a little bit on the harder side, but I use mine to put my feet up on and not as a seat for someone to sit on. I am *this* close to purchasing another one for my other love seat.
