This rug is so beautiful. The colors are beautiful with shades of slate grey, red and, sage greens. The gold border is bright, but not too bright or too dark. Timeless rug with an updated look; could not be more pleased. Very little to no shedding and has very little creases and after three hours it is laying flat. This rug is worth so much more than I paid for it. I have purchased at least 10 rugs from overstock and hands down you cannot find a better deal anywhere. I pay close attention to reviews and I never purchase a rug that doesn't have a review. Happy shopping!
