I purchased this rug for my great room floor which is 4 inch wide white oak planks, stained with a dark walnut stain. This rug looks beautiful with my floor and furnishings. The rug itself has a beautiful silky sheen and a "faded" look which looks great - I would describe it as a "muted" look. The colors are true to what you see on the monitor, with a beautiful navy border and beige interior with the accent colors. Because of the muted nature of this rug, I feel that it is very versatile and will be easy to match with other rugs.
