This is a nice thick rug. Unfortunately, we ordered the "brown" shade, which is actually grayish-black. Doesn't work for us, and now we'll have to deal with a return. The rug also gave off a terrible odor (which I imagine would eventually fade) upon unrolling. If you want a very dark gray rug, this would be a nice choice.
The color in the photo (gold) is not indicative of what you receive. Having that been said, I love the rug. Very good quality for the price. I could not believe how heavy the rug is. It is not living in the room where it was planned because of the color variation, but I decided to keep it another room because I liked it so much (and returning this beast would be too difficult).
I ordered the teal rug. The shipping was SUPER fast, almost unbelievable. However, I could tell before even taking it out of the packaging how wrong the color was. It is a dull jade green, not teal and not bright by any means. There were also several pulls in the pilling. I'd think twice before buying this. I'll be returning it.
