This rug is lovely, vivid, and so soft. Based on the image on the website, I expected a silvery-aqua color with rich ivory accents, but that is not at all the case. The background is more like a flat sage/blue, and the square accent is darker, more like tan/beige. This would be perfect in a cozy family room with a fireplace and dark leather furniture. We were hoping to use it for more of a den/kids' play room, and for that purpose (and our room's existing color scheme), it will not work for us. Wish we had a place for it though, because it seems like a durable and high-quality rug. Finally it must be said that Overstock.com's customer service is great. I've been ordering from this company for years but never had to return anything until it came to this carpet. The rep I spoke to was SO helpful and this return, which I thought would be awkward, is going to be a breeze. Will definitely be ordering here again.
