The rug is not 6' x 8'...it is really a 6' x 9' rug. So, make sure that you have the space for the larger rug. The colors are muted with the exception of the red/burgandy which pops out. The rug also sheds alot. Be prepared to vacuum at least every other day. I bought the rug for my dining room and with the movement of the chairs in and out from the table, the rug sheds into little rug-lint balls underneath the chairs. I chose this one for the muted colors so that it blended and did not clash with rugs in the adjacent entry and living room. While the muted colors work well, the size not matching the description was a surprise as is the constant shedding/pilling of the rug. I am not sure I would have bought this rug if I had realized that it was not 6' x 8' and that it would shed so much.
I love how the rug looks and feels, but I'm concerned about its shedding. When I vacuum it with my new bagless vacuum, I fill the large-capacity bucket no matter how many times I pass it over the rug. If I go over it three times, the bucket will fill the three times. I don't know if that's normal.
Just received my new area rug today and was very pleased with my order. First of all, the shipment arrived only 2 days after placing my order - very fast delivery! The rug is a of a thick, high quality workmanship. Colors are exactly as described - very muted gold & beige with deap burgundy detailing for an extra punch of color. If you are like me and have shopped around at rug retailers and the big home stores looking at rugs, you will not be disapointed with this item.
I was very nervous about the color because some of the reviews for other rugs on Overstock claimed that the color descriptions weren't very accurate. The hues are as shown: light beige with beige, gold and rust (more red than brown) accents. The reddish accents do stand out but serve as a "pop" for the rest of the room. Our sofa pillows match that color, so it really works well for us. The price is terrific.

First time on Overstock.com, and I was worried when I ordered the rug. It arrived today, and is just beautiful. True to color, except the subtle golds and sage pop out a little more than in the photo. I cannot believe the density and apparent quality. I would definitely recommend this rug to others.
