First off, let me say I received this rug WITHIN 2 days. The shipping was EXTREMELY fast! Next onto the rug...the pattern is NOT the same as pictured. I purposely wanted this rug because there is NOT alot of blue in the picture...Well there is a HUGE block of blue on the rug. Honestly this rug looks to be an "oops" from the manufacturer. Someone used way too much of one color and then just started up in another, and looped in some beige. It looks okay for my needs, as it will be under my antique clawfoot dining table. On a positive note, the rug has a tight braid, and looks like it should hold up for years to come.
