I purchased this rug for my dining room and it's absolutely beautiful. The pattern almost matches that in my silk drapes. The only variance from the descripton was the coloring in the patten. While it mentiones burgundy, olive,gold and tan on a black background, the burgundy appears more of a rust color brown which blends beautifully anyway. The quality of the rug excellent and the thickness is very plush. Great value for the money for a 100% rug. Sheds a little, as all new wool rugs do but the overall look in the room is very dramatic. This is the second rug I purchased from Overstock and you can't beat the quality and the value of the merchandise.
