The picture does not do this rug justice! The colors are vibrant and really added some much needed "pop" to my living room. The online picture is a little dark and in person under natural lighting the colors are warm and inviting. The rug was packaged nicely in plastic wrap which kept it from getting dirty. It was easy to unpack and unroll exactly in place. Overall I'm really happy with my purchase. I got a great quality rug which looks expensive for a very good price.
