The picture accurately shows the rug as seen from 10 feet. From close you can see the green and tan fiber patterns that create the illusion of a gold-over-gray reflective' quality. The pile is thick enough to use without a pad...comfy. All in all, very good if you are fine with it looking better from an adjoining room.
Overall, this is a great looking rug. I intended to put this inside my front entry to protect my cork floors from snow/salt/dirt on shoes. I also liked that it was not made of wool because I have a dog in my house who sheds a bit. The colors vary throughout the rug which naturally emphasizes the look of sunlight streaming in the windows flanking my front door. However, I chose this rug after viewing literally hundreds of rugs across Overstock and other websites. The description lists this as "Woven Blue Atka Olefin Rug" and from the photo, I thought it was a pale greyish-blue color that would go so well in my living room. In the bullet under Product Details, it lists the primary color is blue. However, if I would have read the entire text of the description, it says "Woven in olefin, this rug features vibrant colors of lily pad green, doe skin, and desert sand." The background color has a definite pale green tint, which is not inherently bad, but it does not match my room. Blue should not be used in the description or title. I am debating currently about either returning it or using it elsewhere in my house.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The photo appears to have a greyish-blue background with golden pattern. In reality this rug leans toward a green color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fine for the price
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description is not accurate - title and primary color bullet in details say blue, but if you read the fine print, it mentions "lily pad green"
