First, the negative: The rug is quite a bit darker than it appears in the picture. Whereas I expected rust-orange and yellow to be the predominant colors, this is actually an olive-green, almost camouflage rug. That said, this is an incredibly plush, high-quality rug -- far heavier and thicker than I expected. I bought a rubber mat to go underneath it, but trust me: you don't need one; this rug isn't going anywhere. The size is perfect -- just big enough to go underneath my sofa sectionals and coffee table. And as for looks, the pattern is lovely and goes with everything else in the room. Overall, a tremendous value.
