I highly recommend this rug! We've been using this rug for about a month now, and we love it. I was very nervous about purchasing a rug online, sight unseen, but our family couldn't be happier with it. In fact, I waited months before taking the plunge. The colors look a little more lighter and muted than what is shown in the online photo. The rug would go well with any earth tone type color palette. The green looks like a light sage green (not a minty green). It looks way better in person! We get tons of compliments on it. It looks similar to a rug that I saw in*****, at a fraction of the price. As far as wool rugs go, it does not shed very much at all. You will love this rug! Thank you Overstock for offering such great rugs at such amazing prices.
