After an extensive search, I finally found a quality rug that had the "right" red. Most of the rugs I had bought ( and returned) looked like a real brick red in the photo, but were actually a deep burgundy. This rug is true to the colors on my screen - camel, beige, and red. I have not had any problems with "pilling", and overall, I am extremely pleased with the appearance and quality. It looks like a very expensive rug.
