The design of this rug is just great and adds a lot to my red leather sofa and black leather chairs. The problem is that the colors do not look like the photos. The background is not really black, which is what I wanted, rather it is like a very dark charcoal gray. The images are terrific but the colors are not as vibrant as pictured. I am keeping it because I have been looking forever for a contemporary rug like this but I wish the colors were as vibrant as the design.
My living room is done in reds, blacks and yellows. My current carpet is grey so I put this carpet over it (It is smaller than my grey carpet) and it makes the colors pop! Be prepared for lots of lint in your vacuum cleaner--which is typical of wool carpets.
