I was reluctant to order a rug with out seeing the color and feeling the quality, but after reading other reviews I decided to take a chance. And it was well worth it. I was quite pleased and surprised when I open up this rug and found it was a Safavieh (which can be thousands of dollars). The muted tones are true as pictured and would fit in seamlessly in any decor. It looks especially beautiful on our dark hard-wood floors. The pile is plush and soft and very nice underfoot - I'm not even using a rug pad at the moment and probably won't need to. Overall great rug at an unbelievable price!
