Purchased this rug for my son's room and couldn't be more pleased with the color. It's definitely red, but because of the weave, it's not at all bright -- just a very rich, saturated color. While my son, who is six, would have preferred something a little more plush, I think we'll get more longevity out of the thinner weave. Besides, as he happily pointed out to me this afternoon, if it were a thick, shaggy carpet, he would NOT be able to build Lego structures on it!
I love this rug! I purchased the apple green, and it has lighter strands woven through creating a soft look. I did treat it with scotch guard because I have pets. We already had one oopsie and it cleaned right up with a damp cloth. This rug reminds me of the hand woven rugs that I used to buy from the Amish in pennsylvania. It did have a funny smell for the first week or so, but it seems to have dissipated now. I am pleased with this rug. It is exactly what I wanted.
