I ordered this ottoman cover in garnet - very lovely deep red shade - and the velvety fabric is very nice for a casual room like a den, bedroom or playroom. The cover is quite a bit larger than what I'd say is standard, so I have the extra fabric folded under the bottom of my worn-out ottoman. Overall, this is an inexpensive way to save an old piece of furniture. I'd recommend it. I haven't washed it yet, though I know it will come out of the wash just fine - it's a nice fabric and Overstock offers simply great quality and value on items like this. I'm not giving it 5 overall stars due to the unexpected large size, but that's my only gripe.
