This is a beautiful, well made rug. However, I wish I had read a review stating that the colors are much darker than they read on a monitor. I viewed it on two monitors. The brown appears on screen as a dark taupe/golden brown, which would have worked with my decor. In reality, the brown is dark chocolate brown, a lovely shade, but not for me personally. I purchased this in the 2 x 3 as a test before ordering the 9'6 x13'6, and am so grateful that I did. If you want a dark rug, this is a great choice. Meanwhile, I will continue my search.
