Wow, what a hugely disappointing purchase. I wish someone would have written a review about the pattern, really I wish the photo Overstock put up was remotely accurate. When I opened the rug with my roommate, i had to call customer service to make sure the correct rug was sent. Further more, after rechecking all the tags on the rug we had to print the photo and magnify the image to double check, and even then it simply looks different. If you ask anyone who has seen the photo and the rug side by side without hesitation they think its a different rug 100% of the time. The main issue is that the pattern is soo spread out. The pattern did not adjust what so ever to the larger size of the rug. It is mainly a washed out mustard border that takes up 50% at a minimum in that area. The burgundy is washed out as well but again it is the lack of pattern that is so disturbing and disappointing. In the photo, the background is barely seen over the intricate and tightly repetitive pattern that looks so dark and rich. In person it is non of those things, I would say it is the exact opposite. I wanted a tight pattern for the heavy foot traffic in the living area but due to the large light border and the loose pattern this rug will not serve that purpose . If it would not be more than $****to ship it back, I would, but now I am stuck. Just to add one last note, the shedding is awful, so thats a bonus. Quality is actually very nice. I hope this helps. Decide carefully, it is a lot of money for some of us.
