The color is fairly close to the image but instead of dark gold, I would say it's more like a sunflower yellow. To my eye, the online image doesn't seem to have as much of a green border as the rug does in person and I had hoped it would have a more antiqued look (faded) but it's still a beautiful rug and works well in my space. As I think the specifications stated, it's wool, made in India and has a sturdy backing that helps the rug lie flat on the floor without bunching. I've ordered several rugs from Overstock in the past and have always been pleased with the quality and the service.
i love this rug - it's a little lighter than the picture shows which is actually much better in my opinion. the colors are very nice and go well with our home decor. it sheds a lot but all wool rugs do at first. i would highly recommend this rug to anyone looking for something that goes well with green walls.
I love this rug. It has all the colors that I was looking for and at a great price. The colors are more washed out that what the picture indicates. The colors are not bright but more of a subtle hue. This is what I was looking for so I'm happy with that. The gold is really a yellow-gold. The best way I can think of to describe the color is that it looks very faded from a distance. This is a very good quality rug. I will certainly order again if I need.
