The colors and shapes are similar (but not identical) to the picture on the website. I love the vibrant colors that are more Fall than Spring: orange, rust, brown, maroon, etc., with beads that add just a little sparkle. Looks very nice around cherrywood furniture, and I'm sure it looks nice around other woods. It adds color without being overwhelming. I didn't give it 5 stars because, although it is well made, it has some slight imperfections. It is good quality; I save the 5 stars for top quality.
The pattern and colors do not match the picture at all...not even close. It looks completely different. It will still work in the room (and again it really is beautiful), so I think I'll keep it. If you're buying the piece for these specific colors--think again.
