I love this rug. The contemporary geometric pattern is just what I needed to tie all the colors in our new modern room together. The greenish color is more of a yellow-green. It did shed quite a bit when I first put it down, which concerned me since it is under a new heavy slate pool table, so hard to replace with a different rug if the shedding didn't stop. A few good vacuums later with the Dyson, it appears to no longer be shedding. I am very happy with this purchase.
