The rug looks beautiful online...beige & gold, exactly what I was looking for. The ACTUAL rug, when it arrived, has an ugly green hue to it. The colors are dull & have no life!! I would not recommend buying rugs on this site, as the colors aren't true to what they show online.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? NO! The rug has mostly an ugly green hue to it. Not at all what I expected!!!
The quality of this rug for the price is OK. It is a tufted wool rug on cotton backing. It is not hand knotted as far as I can tell. So, so much for that part. The real problem is the color, although the design is fairly true from the photo the color bears no resemblance at all. The "gold" is a dark mustard brown, the beige is a light brown. There is very little contrast in the colors so the design is not at all precise as shown. The effect is kind of like brown, on brown on brown....boring! I am returning this rug.
I bought an 8X10 version of this rug a few years ago, and outside of the fact that it sheds volumes every time I carpet sweep it, it has held up quite well. This smaller rug I'm using at the home's front door foyer within sight of the larger rug. Amazing, they match pretty well. Excellent value.
