I was very hesitant to purchase this rug because the color was listed as brown/beige, however, the picture was more of a subtle sage green which is the color that I was actually looking for. After much hesitation I decided to order it anyway and I was very pleased when I received it. The color was exactly as in the picture. The colors are so soft and beautiful. The red is not to bright, just enough to make the rug pop. Some of the other reviews commented on the shedding. I've owned this rug for about 6 weeks and there is almost no shedding at all. The rug is very plush compared to other area rugs I own. I would definitely buy this rug again.
