Received this carpet last week. It is a beautiful almost cerulian, true blue (no green tones) muted with cream,gray, and taupe (not beige) with a tiny bit of navy accent yarns woven throughout, to give it the appearance of a "gently used" rug. The two longest sides are bound and each end (the short sides) is folded flat and sewn down with a fabric carpet tape as would be done in a very expensive rug. The knap is about 1/4 inch long, tightly woven, making the pile nearly impossible to penetrate to the backing with my finger. I have tile' floors and purchased a pad for hard surfaces. It will make the rug last longer and keep it from "creeping" from vacuuming. It really is a pretty and a very rich looking rug I highly recommend it. I purchased the 9' X 12' and it fits beautifully in my 15' X 18' living room.
This rug is absolutely gorgeous in my family room. There are a variety of blues in it, so it went well with my large sectional medium gray couch and two medium blue chairs. So many of the newer living rooms are shown with the geometric carpeting and I wanted a warmer more friendly look. This added lightness and interest to the room yet still kept it contemporary in style. I'm so happy with this choice!
