Overall this is a really great rug! It does shed some, no big deal. The orange looking colored medallion is not really an orange/rust at all, it's more of a muted gray. Still love this rug though, it's very plush and stylish. Overstock is continuously the best place to buy rugs!
In my opinion the colors of this rug are nothing like what's on my monitor. The "cream" colored background is dark gray. The blues are dull. The "golden yellow" is dark gold, and the "beige" medallions are an odd rusty tan. However, the quality of the rug seems very good. It's thick and feels great underfoot.
We purchased two of these rugs to go on either side of our bed (tile floors)..they arrived quickly, safely, and the colors were just as they appeared on our computer monitor! Initially it was sort of scary buying rugs on line, but I would do it again. This was our second successful purchase from Overstock.com!
