Based on another reviewer's comment, I took a chance that the "navy" blue in this rug would not look as dark in person, and I'm really glad I did. This rug is really beautiful with a nice blend of lustrous indigo and cobalt blues in the ground color that look blue, not black. The simple pattern is elegant and the beige and light blue along with the indigo go great in my mostly blue and white bedroom. The pile is extremely thick, dense, and plush and feels great under bare feet. The rug is very well made from a quality manufacturer. I purchased several other rugs through Overstock by this same manufacturer of equally excellent quality, I am very pleased.
The feel of the rug is nice, but the color is very different than the monitor color on my computer. My biggest complaint however is that the rug I received is not the rug pictured. The photo here must actually be for a larger model (say 7x9 or so) because the 3x5 I received today only has 5 of the large medallions as opposed to the 15 large medallions pictured here. In essence the print is much larger than it appears in this image. I am disappointed and will need to return the item.
