We received the rug three days ago, It was nice that Overstock provided tracking information, so we knew when it would arrive.Initial impressions: It's beautiful! It does look slightly different than the picture on the web site, as other reviewers have said, the red is more of a burgundy (but that's how it showed on my monitor anyway) The main difference that I see from the pic on the web site is that a lot of the patterns are outlined in a much lighter color than shows up on the picture, which really makes the design pop. Of course this is a handmade object, and I was expecting that there would be some variation.It feels very plush and cushy underfoot. The colors are lovely.My friends love it. The first comment I've heard twice now was, "you guys have good taste".It's lovely, it makes my room feel bigger than it did, it feels wonderful, it's everything that I wanted - highly recommend!
