I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this rug . . . the pile is very dense, the colors deep and saturated and the price was a bargain! Be advised the "brown" border of this rug looks dark plum in some lighting conditions and plummy-brown at different times of day. The red is a dark brick red and very clear and the accents of soft blue-gray work well together. This rug weighs about 90 lbs and is much easier to manage with two people. I also purchased the premium rug pad to protect my wood floors. I highly recommend this rug ~ I am very satisfied with this purchase.
