Both the image and description of the rug indicate there is red in the rug. However, the runner I received has deep magenta in it, not red. Since I did a search solely for runners, I did not see the images for the area rugs with the same description. Those images depict the true color of the rug.If deep magenta works for you, buy the rug. The design is great and the quality is good for the price point. Unfortunately, I need a rug with red in it, not hot pink, so I'll have to send this one back.
I fell in love with this rug the second I saw it on Overstock.com and again once I saw it in person :D This rug is GORGEOUS! It's soft to the touch, colors are vibrant and it's a perfect way to brighten up a hallway. I'm SOOO happy with my purchase, I highly recommend this runner. --You won't be disappointed!
