The color was a little different than I anticipated (it looks more charcoal in the pic, but is more of a brownish grey in person) but it's an upscale neutral, and the material is lovely. As always with Jax, the bed is incredibly well-made and plush. Very luxurious - in both look and feel. Super soft tweed-like fabric with suede-like stitching around the border. My dog was curled up in it within 30 seconds of arrival. Medium size is perfect for my 30 lb dog, with room to spare. He currently time-shares it with the cat, who is also madly in love with the bed. Looks and feels expensive and fits right in with the living room. A definite winner in our household.
