The 8x10 excellent quality rug arrived well wrapped in heavy plastic within 5 days. The colors depicted in the Overstock picture were very accurate for my rug. The sage border is about 2.5 inches wide and provides the perfect complement to the background which is a golden cream (not brassy nor washed out). The rug looks great on my cherry hardwood floor and complements my butter yellow walls very well. I am very pleased with this purchase.
