The wenge finish is a black color, not dark brown. I felt it was difficult to tell color from the picture, and many other pieces from other manufacturers show "wenge" as a dark brown. It does not look like black paint, but like a stain with some of the wood grain visible but no shade variation present.
The complaints I had regarding this table:
1) the length listed in the specs for this piece was 88" and the actual table only measures 84"
2) the design of the base does not allow for the chairs to be pushed in along the sides, so if you are short on space in that direction this could be a big problem.
I also purchased the matching buffet which is beautiful as well.
