The rug is thick, warm and nice to walk on. Size is fantastic for my room ans was a deciding factor in buying this rug. The color is listed as rust, the tag on the rug says brown. I wish it was a bit brighter in color... I can see it as a limiting factor if I change the room. Will do nicely with DARK furniture or taupes. I have nubuck furniture... not a match. Thankfully the furniture is leaving anyway. Just faster than I thought! Good luck and overall, I would say it was a great buy.
