I was looking for a rug that would not draw attention to itself but instead complement my furniture. This rug is just perfect. The red in it gives it some pizazz while still staying neutral. The rug could be dressed up or dressed down. I purchased the 9X12 size and it is perfect for our large great room. Our walls are a gold tone and our sofa is gold and we have a red chair/ottoman with gold,tan,brown,olive stripes, plus two deep brown leather occasional chairs. It looks fabulous. I had been thinking of painting our walls a taupe color, but not any more. This rug has enough gold to enhance the walls while adding the taupe color I wanted in an overall scheme (the main rug color is taupe). There is some olive green but you have to search to find it in the rug. Finally...shipping was incredibly fast!!! Thank you Overstock...keep bringing on the deals. This rug, btw, is listed on a large well known department store's website for over $2700, not including tax and shipping, I checked before ordering! With Overstock's 10% off coupon I purchased the 9X12 for around *****! I wouldn't have been able to afford this quality of rug without Overstock.
