I love the rug but a word to the wise, the colors are really quite different in person. background is kind of a goldish beige color. Not at all like the picture. I have it in my living room with a chocolate brown leather sofa and it looks great. Doesn't show the dirt, and with 3 kids and dogs thats important to me. Its still shedding a little after two weeks but that is to be expectred when your buying a wool rug.
