When I originaly ordered this rug I thought it had a solid black background and was surprised to see thousands of small grey strips intermingled with the black giving it more of a charcoal look. I thought it was a flaw in the wool. Although it was different than I expected, it made the rug more interesting and the rug was beautiful . I have since seen the rug again in another home and it also has the grey intermingled in the black background. I'm beginning to suspect that this varigated background is not a flaw but intentional. If you look very closely in the Overstock close up picture you can see the tiny strips of grey. My rug has the black and grey background, cranberry red, dark gold, sage green, olive green, greyish blue. Very happy. It blends well with my terracotta walls. Thanks
This item is stated to have a "black background" - be aware that the "black background" is laced with lines of purple - it's very distracting from the overall design - and if purple isn't a color you are looking for, do not choose this rug as it is very pronounced - throughout the black background and black bordering. Otherwise, it's a great value and the other colors are lovely.
I have been looking for a traditional hand hooked rug with Williamsburg colors for over a year. This rug is perfect! I have noticed that some reviews say the rug is navy and not black... the black background has flecks of slate gray running through it which does make it look navy when the light hits it at certain times of the day... the rug however, is black. The gold border is not quite as bright as it shows in the picture... more of a vanilla cream color. This rug is timeless and I don't believe I will ever tire of it! My Mother loved it so much that she ordered one too. The price is outstanding for the quality.
I replaced my carpet with laminate and searched for hours for just the right carpet and this was my choice. It is spectacular and the centerpiece of my living room. I have continued to purchase Overstock area rugs and other products and have never been disappointed with any of my purchases.

This is a great value for the money and I would recommend anyone to purchase this to add color and character to a room. The rug arrived only a few days after I ordered it, and this large rug rolled out onto the floor with no wrinkles and laid perfectly flat.
