This runner is exactly what I wanted and it is the perfect length. It rolled out smooth/ flat after being shipped in a roll. The colors are muted and the predominent color is the sage green. The pile is a little more plush than I expected but if my roomba doesn't mind neither do I. I am using the runner on a hardwood floor and definitely need to invest in the non-skid liner as it does shift from foot traffic, although not a slip hazard. Another great purchase from Overstock.com!
