I chose the Smoke upholstery after debating between the Sherpa and Smoke options while viewing at the showroom. Once I had the pieces mixed in with my grey tones at home, I could see more of a Slate (blue hue) pop. In the light of the day, it's even more obvious. Still a very beautiful color just not what I had expected initially. I returned to the showroom the next day to see if I had been mistaken or if perhaps that shipment was different from the showroom. Absence of sunlight, in the middle of the showroom, there was the Smoke chairs I remembered although now the hue was more evident to me. The very helpful HFH sales rep assisted me in bringing the pillow to the sun lite window where I could see the obvious tones I was experiencing at home. The HFH sales rep reminded me that if I weren't happy for any reason they could be returned (with original packaging).
With a bit more self debate and a few tweaks to my accents, I'm keeping them! The color is very opulent and mixes well with muted tones and bright pops. I find the Smoke fabric is very comfortable too, second to the Sherpa.
