This rug is much more vibrant in person but not overwhelmingly so. It mixes with my very eclectic furnishing beautifully. It does pill, however, that is to be expected of a wool rug. Keep vaccuuming. It will stop! The quality far surpasses most other rugs found at this price point. A wool rug on a manmade material budget. Take the time to shop the internet. I saw this rug elsewhere for **** more than at Overstock. And, as usual, shipping was lightning fast. Great value and quality once again. You go, Overstock!
