The colors are as advertised it's actually quite good. For its price and value it's a 4.5 for sure. It shed for at least 3-4 vacuum cleaning but it stopped. No commercial smell from the start. Recommended. I used it in one of my bedrooms. UPDATE OCT 1 2017: Here's the scoop, this rug has shed constantly even today after all this time. The problem is it is a TUFT rug and these rugs shed no matter due to the way it is loomed and cut (either by hand or machine). I gave up on this rug and went with another rug at another store which I visited. You need to non-TUFT rugs if shedding bothers you. You have been warned.
I knew this was the rug I had been searching for years for as soon as I saw it online. The colors are amazing and the photos in this site don't do it justice! The 9 x 12 fits perfectly in my small living room as well! Worth the wait!
The colors are a sage green/grey, a beautiful rust red, cream, warm gold, and deep brown accent lines around various of the design elements. Ordered the 9' x 12' and it instantly made the room look larger, despite the fact that it is patterned. There is some mild out gassing which is already dispersing even though I can't open the windows--wildfires in Northern California. There is no pilling apparent as was the case with previous wool rugs I've ordered. This is the sixth higher-end wool rug I've ordered from Overstock and I've been very pleased every time.
