I purchased this rug to match two yellow fabric chairs in my living room. The living room is painted a golden maize color. The rug is not as yellow or as soft as I would have liked, but it is a great rug and matches pretty well. The colors of the flowers in rug are more vivid and larger than in the picture. The rug is thick and I think it won't show the dirt as easily as a softer or lighter color would have. In general I am pleased with the rug - it definitely makes a statement in my room and I think the values that Overstock provides is terrific.. One note about the delivery however. Whoever delivered it put it in my front garden in the bushes. When my husband retrieved it, the black plastic had torn and there was some dirt on the back of the rug. In short, it could have been packaged better.
