I ordered this rug and three other smaller matching pieces for my living room. All of them arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm, and thanks to the impeccable packaging, they were all completely dry when I unrolled them.This is a beautiful, plush, well- crafted rug. The beauty of the rich colors really enhances the whole look of my living area. I felt that the colors in the photo of the rug were fairly well- represented. The gold does appear a bit more muted than it looks on the website, as it is more of a yellow- tan color, but it is, nonetheless, a gorgeous addition to my home. I shopped this rug on several different sites and Overstock definitely had the best deal by far.This is the 3rd rug that I have purchased from Overstock and I have never been disappointed by the quality or outstanding pricing.Thanks, Overstock!
