We bought this rug despite there being no reviews for it because the color palette as I thought it was pictured and described -- red with tan, gold, and olive accents-- was what we were aiming for and I liked the pattern. After ordering it, however, I spent more time looking at the photos of the same rug in different shapes and sizes and was alarmed to see some pink in it. I would never have ordered it if I had known this-- the Overstock description does not include it. I tried to cancel the order within a few hours of placing it, but Overstock's service is so fast it was impossible and the rug shipped anyway. I must say that Overstock's customer service was extremely polite and helpful in talking me through the potential return situation, should we have chosen that. So we received the rug in just a few days, and after laying it out, we decided to keep it after all given the hassle of packaging it back up and returning it. I was really hoping that the red in this rug would be more of a brick shade, as I thought it appeared in the photos, but in real life it is more like a bright claret-- this is not a fire engine red or a tomato red, and it is brighter still than a burgundy. The supporting shades in the border and elsewhere are soft sage, medium olive, pale gold, a light beige that verges on taupe, and a muted, slightly mauve-y pink. Yes, definitely PINK, which the Overstock description failed to mention. The brand and quality are the same as a previous Overstock purchase-- Safavieh makes a very nice rug for the price. It is lovely and thick with a soft feel underfoot. The center pattern is on the bold side, which lends visual interest to our living room. It also brings a lot of brightness to the room, which has dark hardwood floors and a medium-to-dark moss green on the walls. In the future I will only buy a rug if there are reviews describing the color. I hope my review will help others make an informed choice about this one-- and please, Overstock, correct the listings for this and other rugs in the same style!
