The cushions are soft, the color is just as described. It matches my decor perfectly. The only problem I encountered was the smell. It reeked of that warehousy bug repellent! No one could use it for about a week and had to keep the window cracked. Febreeze has been helpful, but after 2 weeks, there is still a subtle unpleasant fragrance to the fabric. If I had a way to wash them, it would make it much nicer!
