Oh my gosh! What a treasure of a rug!! This rug arrived within 3 days after ordering, and was left on my back porch as directed. It was huge, and weighed in at 78 pounds, so I knew I would be wrestling it into my house. Very well packaged, absolutely protected from anything that might harm it. Including me. I got it into my house and promptly spilled plant water on the wrapped rug. It took me about an hour to get it unwrapped due to the warnings on the packaging to not cut along the length of the wrappings. I finally figured out how to get it out of the wrapping, and it eventually did slide out. Get a helper to move it anywhere while wrapped. It is indeed a lovely rug, and just the size and colors I had hoped for to accentuate chocolate brown leather furniture in a very bright room. Deep burgundy border, & the pattern includes sage green, maize, tan/beige, smoky and navy blues; excellent quality wool rug.
