I did not use this in the first room I had intended it for, however, I do like the color and quality and have ordered a couple of other sizes for the stair landing and inside the front door. It did shed for the first few vacuums and that was it. It laid flat right out of the packaging.

I was worried when I printed a picture of the rug off of my printer. It came across as red/orange/rust. The actual rug is very different. I have the rug in a dark dining room. I would describe the colors as primarily a red brown (think dark coffee with cream - that leans a hint red) with gold/taupe as secondary colors. The border is a dark brown. I read some reviews that said it was 'purple'. It is not purple - but it is a dark brown that leans a hint red. I have found that this rug to be very rich, very elegant and a GREAT buy.
This was the first time I have owned or purchsed a rug like this, actually it is "art on the floor"...I couldn't be more pleased. The color description is slight off in my opinion, but much to my delight, there is purple along the border, a rich purple that looks like chocolate in the evening. It is just beautiful....I feel silly to say "I actually cried when I saw it put down." The shipping was excellent, fast and in perfect condition. It is soft, plush and the grand-baby loves to lay on it! I have shopped retail stores and seen rugs like this in the $2,000 + price range. I will shop here again without hesitation. So grateful my friend reccommended this and I hope my review is helpful.
We absolutely love this rug! It came quickly, is nice and thick, the colors are beautifully muted, and if you look at the reviews for the 9x13 (which we were first considering), it gives a much better/more accurate color description. The border is NOT brown, it is a muted dark purple. The 9x13 describes the colors much better (and the reviews were spot on for the 9x13). Overstock should definitely change the color description, but outside of the border (which is hard differentiate when you're told it is brown), the rest of the colors show up accurately on our monitor.
