The rug arrived really quickly with regular shipping. It's gorgeous but I wanted to say that it's not red at all. It's quite brown. The description says rust with a sage border. I'd say rust is exactly right. I would not call the border sage and it is not as green as the picture. I would call it beige. There is sage in the design. I was wanting a rug that wasn't too red so I'm completely satisfed. It matches my brown leather furniture perfectly. Tip: it's 2 shades lighter if you rotate it 180 degrees.
