I was searching for a rug in this price range, but only found rugs in very neutral/boring color schemes. This rug is beautiful. The picture on my monitor is accurate, but it does not distinguish the many colors in the rug including red, green and shades of brown. I ordered two runners (one matching and one coordinating) after having this rug for a week. My baby is going to start crawling soon, I want soft surfaces. Shipping was not quick but not excessively long either. It is the holiday season afterall! Overall I am very pleased.
