It's far more wine than gold, looking red with gold highlights vs. like the picture. Feels great underfoot, looks wonderful. Wonderful entry rug because the front door threshhold is very high and so it creates an equal height transition. If this were in the middle of a room, the height (almost 5/8" with backing) wouldn't work.
I ordered a 10 foot runner that is very pretty but the 3x5 rug to match for my kitchen has a lot more green to it than the runner. Because one is in the hall way and the other is in front of my sink the matching is not that important. The colors are pretty and the background is burgandy but one rug has more green and light gold while the runner has more tan and brown. Anyway, the price was great and as long as they eventually quit shedding I will be happy with them.
I am very pleased with this purchase; I needed a wool product to act as an insulator between myself, and ground for my meditative sessions. I used to use folded Pendleton wool fabric for the same purpose; but for lower cost, increase in effectiveness, and the desirable size, this rug is perfect. I prefer the middle-eastern style, and colors, plus it feels very nice to walk on and touch.
we bought this rug to go with an 8x8 rug in our dinning room. It matches beautifully though it's a little darker than i'd hoped. There's more green than i thought there would be, but all in all it seems like a quality rug for the money, and a nice addition to our home.
I purchased this rug for my upstairs hall which has gold walls. So with the gold and wine colors in this rug I thought it would be perfect. I was disappointed with the colors of this rug. The colors were very muted, looked sun faded and dingy. The rug was missing the outer gold border which I thought would bring the rug together and framed it with a gold color, giving it a pop of brightness. Also some of the design was missing from the center of the rug. I have purchased other rugs from Overstock and have been VERY PLEASED with the other rugs. I LOVE Overstock and will continue to buy from Overstock. Unfortunately this rug didn't work out.
It looked nice online, but when I opened the package I was truly impressed. Very thick and durable. Opulent, I would say. Far more expensive looking than the price. LOVE! The color is definitely darker than pictured. Leans towards oxblood/brown than red on the wine scale.
