Thanks to all who helped me decide and now... The lighting in this room's making the Pomme color look funky. It's really a deep red but the second pic looks like the old red . Anyway, I'm thrilled!!! It looks fabulous inside the Damier's interior. I hope I don't scratch it up. I was going to get a Damier Ludlow but when my SA brought this out, I KNEW THIS WAS THE ONE!
