I ordered 3 of these rugs as stair runners. This is a great rug for the price. They are very durable thus far. It does just have a basic bottom so if you are looking to put this over hardwood or tile, etc., you will need to purchase something to prevent it from moving. The color is pretty close to the picture. It's a rich brown with cream (very slight yellowish) swirls. This rug looks great, and I get compliments on them all the time.
