This is a really nice rug, unfortunately it didn't work for me. The color online appears to be a dark, royal purple, but in person it is more red (almost a magenta) and a bit lighter than I expected. It is also thicker than I anticipated. It feels great under the feet, but I bought it to go under the dining room table, and it is too high off the floor for this purpose. The description says the pile height is 0.50 inches, but this rug is taller than the 0.75 rug I bought for the living room. Again, this is a soft, and seemingly high-quality rug, but I am returning it because the color and height just didn't work for me.
