These chairs are a beautiful color! There are two shades of brown, a regular medium brown and a very rich almost chocolate dark brown. The blue is the popular light, robin's egg blue. The fabric is sturdy and feels high quality. The chairs were very simple to put together though it did take two people. The small pillow is actually inside the chair so read the assembly instructions. These chairs look fabulous in our master bedroom and are the exact colors we were seeking. Another great deal on Overstock!
