The color was true to the picture and the quality was commensurate with the price. A pleasant surprise was that it was thicker than I expected and it is sculpted! Which adds to the patterned look. It is also very soft. My husband measured from the center out and measured the room etc. He is obsessed with getting everything squared up and centered, which is when he noticed the rug isn't perfectly square. It doesn't bother me and I don't think you'd notice it if you weren't looking for it. Overall very satisfied with the purchase!
