The rug is beautiful burgundy and gold. The colors are rich and vibrant. It is an expensive looking rug. It sheds a lot, but this should go down with time. The edge of the rug seems to be a little thinner in places, but I think it is only me that notices. My mom really liked the rug and she has good taste. For the money I think it is a great buy, the size is ample and the colors beautiful. I bought a new leather sectional from costco and the two go lovely together. The rug is on top of green slate and the green in the floor complements the sage green in the rug great. Great buy overall.
