This is a beautiful rug at a great price. I believe overstock when they say the original price was over 2 grand. It's well made, and doesn't feel rough like some wools do under your feet. The colors in it are beautiful, though overall, they are slightly (just barely) darker than what appears in the pictures. The reds are not a bright red, but more of a red rose in color (richer than a bright red), and the greens are sage in color. the rug itself is more tan than cream. Very happy with it. Just put it down, so I can't comment on the durability.
