I was a bit disapointed in this rug. The green background is a real pine green color. I didn't think it would be that green. Also the pile is very short! My other wool rugs have a nice thick pile. This rug almost looks like it's polypropeline I'd send it back but it would cost too much!
I ordered this rug on a Sunday, and received it on Thursday- so the fast shipping was great! (Well packaged for shipping by the way). The rug seems pretty true to color- very dark green background, with light golden brown, sage, and red/wine colors. Laid flat almost immediately- just the one end is curled (where it was rolled the tightest), NO weird odor or anything like that, and I vacuumed it and shedding doesn't seem like it will be an issue. So I'm pretty happy with this purchase- was nervous about ordering a major decorating item online, but I got lucky with this one! I also ordered a pad from Overstock to go with.
