I've never seen nebula/parchment. Can you post pics? I would think that would clash...

Another option is Fire Agate/Parchment.

My 2010 parchment came with darker tan mats, not sure why they went back to parchment color mats.

That is the interior/exterior color combination that Lexus was featuring in a couple of its most often shown ES TV commercials last summer. Here is one of them.

I feel they do clash, just like the Gray and parchment on the RX clash. Everyone has their preferences and parchment on any color for me is not one of them. Parchment is way too hard to keep clean and looking new. I'd rather go gray, if I really wanted a light interior.

I was concerned about keeping the parchment clean on my 2010...had no issues.

We got the Fire Agate with parchment last week as we wanted something brighter than our other car (black leather).

I would have picked the Flaxen in a heartbeat if available. Looks really good and would show least stains over time.

For North East weather and parchment interior, weathertech liners seem almost a must as the standard carpet started showing stains within a week (too much rain/snow past week ).

I like the fact that weathertech tan floor mats are darker than the carpets which come with parchment interior and cover the edges much better. For a pic, see the sticky thread.

Great, thank you.

Not if you stay on top of cleaning the dye transfer off of the seats.

For everyday cleaning I would use this:

For deeper cleaning this:

For protection, this:

These folks have some very good products, Pristine Clean for cleanup, and Rejuvinator Oil for periodic refresh, have used both. Originally developed for Rolls enthusiasts.

Totally disagree. I think the plastics in the parchment interior look horribly cheap, especially the shift console area. That practically-yellow plastic surrounding the black shifter and mouse control, continuing all across the dash, is just not befitting a luxury car. It's the main reason I chose the black interior. I have never liked black interiors, always avoided them, but I just thought the parchment looked terrible. I agree with the original poster, I wish they would offer flaxen or caramel in the ES.
