Amazing find for the price. Pretty big hidey area, covered with fine plush. It's very soft, not course carpet like other condos you find here and at the pet store. It is brown and tan/cream, not black like picture appears but this is totally okay and I knew from another buyer's review going in that this would be the case. Nice and sturdy, could be a little bit heavier but like I said, for the price absolutely nothing to complain about. Kitty loves it, he is in it right now. Will probably outgrow the top platform eventually but that is okay. Looks great in the living room and doubles as scratching post. Thumbs up!
