This is a beautiful rug. However, it is not the color stated in the description. It looks like a beautiful gold/brown with a wedgwood blue color in the border. Not so, the brown is more of a greenish brown, with a darker blue in the border with maroon accents. It is very thick and it doesn't shed much but did not go with my dining room colors. It's too hard to return so I will be giving it to my son and daughter-in-law.
