Firstly, if you have qualms about buying an area rug from overstock.com, rest easy. This is my 3rd in 6 years. I do wind up replacing them every couple of years because I have a dog that likes to chew rugs, but Lulu has seemed to leave this one alone so far. This rug is not my usual style, but I was trying to complement some colorful throw pillows. This rug adds color and design interest beautifully. The colors are muted, not bright. One note, while I knew there was blue in the rug, I thought it might be more gray, One panel is definitely a dusty blue, while the other panels could pass for gray. Colors are dusty blue, gray, light green, old gold, brown/orange. It is also textured within each design panel, which I have found to like. It is wearing well, and has the funky kind of vibe I was looking for. For the price, and minimal shipping charge, it's hard to find a better deal. Just open the package carefully, because if you do have to return it, you will need to use the same packaging.
