I had been looking everywhere for a Navy rug with a pattern. They are very hard to come by. The blue of the rug is not quite as navy, but a bit more royal blue which ended up going well in the room where I used it. It is a very expensive rug, but it is quality built. I can tell after putting it down, and checking it out in more detail that it is very well made. It doesn't roll up at the corners, and is very thick and heavy. The pattern is beautiful, but wild. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it, and it works wonderfully with a beige or ivory couch like I have.
