The previous descriptions were accurate regarding the paleness of the colors compared to the pic. The red and blue are both variegated to the point where it looks like zebra stripes. The red part is mixed with orange/peach. There's a bit of pink in the detail I could do without. It also measured 2 inches short (9' x 11'10"). That said, it's a great deal considering what $500 will get you at Home Depot or a rug store. It's cushy and I could fall asleep on it easily. I had some trouble with UPS but Overstock's customer service was reassuring. They are the BEST!
