As other reviewers noted, the colors are much more muted than in the picture. I would say the blue is like washed out denim because it has variations in it. The other colors include light beige, medium beige, dark rose and cranberry. The package arrived well wrapped in less than a week. I vacuumed it right away and left it unrolled in another area of the house for a few days to let the slight odor dissipate. I am also a great believer in Scotchgard and gave the runner a treatment. I've had the rug for about 3 weeks and have not noticed any excessive shedding. It really brightens up a hallway that doesn't get a lot of natural light. I would definitely recommend this - the quality and price are excellent!
The color is lighter, which I like. The blue is really light blue (maybe with some gray shade). It sheds a bit in the beginning, but not much. shipped in rolls, nice. Rather thick in a nice way.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color is lighter than the web. The yellow part is more of cream color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK
The rug is very nice. I bought it as a runner for my kitchen. It looks ok, but is a bit soft for this application---the colors on the site appeared darker and richer. The blue is a light blue and the boder is light shades of beige and creme with rust and green accents (very small).

If the rug was the same color as the on site photo, this review would be all positive. However, it seems like a completely different rug because of the color.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are totally different on site than the actual product.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good although the rug sheds a bit. It is well made though and very plush.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Other than the color difference, the description was on point.
Soft, thick, lovely colors, perfect length for my back (and highly trafficked) hallway. Excellent price for this nice product.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors were softer, which I actually liked better.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality, very thick pile.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate...aside from the color issue (which was not an issue for me).
Am giving 4 stars (instead of 5) b/c I was surprised by the LIGHT BLUE color of the background....the screen picture makes the Blue look like a jewel color, but it is Light Blue. The surrounding border is not the yellow/gold pictured, but an oatmeal color.....as all other reviewers say, the colors are def'ly more muted that what is shown. This in no way takes away from the beauty of the rug - it is lovely. We ordered 3 rugs and are having them cut down for a stairway.....cheaper than a conventional runner, and a little different than the run-of-the-mill offerings in the rug stores for stair runners.
