Loved the colors, which were true to the picture. It was also a good quality rug. HOWEVER, my husband and I could not overlook the "bursts", which were truly hideous... they were not a part of the rug, but were pieces of stringy yarn that was sewn on top of the rug. While we were warned by the other reviews, we did not expect it to look as obvious, bad and cheap as it did. If you are looking for something very different and eccentric, maybe this rug is for you. If you are looking for something more elegant and classic, be warned!! We ended up returning the item.
