I do a lot of research before I buy an area rug. This one is a very expensive one and I am lucky to have gotten a great deal at Overstock. It's really beautiful but when I laid my rug it had a 12inch dark stain on it. Don't know if it was a defect or stain. Being that it was a 9'6 X 13'6 rug, I didn't want the trouble of sending it back. I still paid a good penny for it and sorry to say I never called Overstock to complain about it.The gold in this rug is very light for those who are considering to buy it.
The rug is much darker than the pictures and much "busier" than I would have like. The colors marched my room perfectly so I decided to keep it because my husband and kids like it and it is very heavy. I wish the colors were a bit more subdued ......it would have been perfect.
Having looked at this rug over many months, I finally took the plunge and ordered it. It arrived promptly and in excellent condition. The colors are as pictured; the rug is thick and feels quite luxurious: nice to walk barefoot across it. Did find it quite heavy and somewhat difficult to install, but worth the effort. Am planning to purchase runners later.
