I was VERY apprehensive about buying a rug online. I read the reviews and decided to take the plunge, and I am so happy I did! This rug is beautiful and very soft. I bought the runner for our hallway and it looks great. My husband even commented on how much he likes it - and he never does that. The "orange" really isn't bright orange. It is more of a burnt orange or spice color. It really is beautiful.
