Color is very like the representation online, blends well with dark hardwood flooring. The larger pattern is nice in a large room and doesn't overpower. The rug is somewhat more modern than traditional but fits well with our furnishings. I would recommend it as a great deal for the price. However, this particular rug was made in China, not the Oushak region in Turkey or Iran. That being the case, the price is still a good one, and we are satisfied. Laid flat immediately, no lumps/bumps/irregularities.
