My husband and I tried several of the Martha Stewart silk-blend rugs for our bedsides, and although we chose the Amazonia rug in the raft/beige color combo we were so impressed with this Seaflora rug in the shell color that we're going to return the smaller rugs and buy a larger one for another room. I'm not exactly sure how to describe the colors, the background color (the "shell" color, I guess) is like a pale purple and has a near-iridescent quality because the other color, a pale greenish neutral, is blended in. Check the close-up pictures. Hard to put into words, but the effect is really beautiful. Overstock's pictures are most true, I've seen pictures on other web sites that are way off. I also want to mention the quality, it's fantastic. The rug is flawless, densely knotted, and the fibers (especially the primary pattern) have the most beautiful sheen. Highly recommended. As always, Overstock is fantastic. It took only a few days for the rugs to arrive, perfectly packaged, and in flawless condition.
