    Hi, I have still been unable to find a picture of the Obeche matte with the black interior. Could you please post a picture if you have one? Thank you.

    We really love ours. It's quite understated and very homey. Please let us know what light do you want to see it in -- I'll try to get tomorrow

    Thank you. I ordered mine just looking at the swatches, any additional shots would be greatly appreciated. Was starting to wonder if I should have ordered carbon fiber like the majority.

    Everyone has different tastes but if there is one practical advantage to getting the matte wood, it would be that it's MUCH easier to maintain than anything glossy. I go over all the surfaces in the car with a Swiffer duster and voila, job done. Had a loaner with beige interior and carbon fiber last week and personally did not like it as much. I also ordered the matte wood almost sight unseen but my OA was amazing and drove a car out on his day off that had it just so I could see it in person so don't be afraid to ask because Tesla customer service is amazing.

    I also ordered the Obeche Matte, (with Grey interior) and did it completely sight unseen. (I hadn't seen the car either.) I really think I'll like it, and the pictures everyone posts certainly help solidify that.

    I'm wondering what word you were looking for above though, romp, as I'm sure it wasn't "homely." I'm torn between "homey" and "comely" as my guesses. (Homely means, basically, ugly.) We don't want it to get spread around the forums that people who own Obeche Matte interiors are calling it homely! :)

    Cerie, so the interior is "all black" below the windows (seats, carpets, dash trim, all parts of doors, etc.), and the pillars and ceiling are beige? What exterior color do you have? Thanks.

    I have the textile headliner as the black alcantra was not available when I ordered the car and I received my VIN # early and was told I could not change it. I have a black exterior as well and thought I would mind the color difference but now sitting in it, I rather like it as it makes the car brighter since I did not get the pano roof.

    +1.

    I love the black seats, black alcantra headliner look -- basically, all black. I had a 2014 loaner once that had next-gen front seats, in black leather, with carbon fiber interior. Loved it. But I think I might prefer the Obeche matte over the carbon.

    I currently have the Obeche gloss with tan leather seats with light colored headliner, and the headliner, and especially the driver's B pillar, suffers from lots of clothes-rubbing and hat-rubbing so it gets dirty. I figure the black alcantra headliner would hide a multitude of sins.

    If and when I get another Tesla, definitely all-black interior!
