I was very excited when I purchased this rug as it's very pretty from the photo and the details made it sound like it's a high quality, plush rug. It's still a very pretty rug, although the colors aren't quite as vibrant in the photo (I think the photo was taken with a flash so the gold background appears lighter and the other colors more vibrant), however, and this is a very big however--the pile height IS NOT as advertised. The details say a pile height of 0.75 inches and it's barely 0.5 with a generous measurement. I measured it from several spots, had a friend measure it, and this rug is by no means anywhere close to 0.75 inces pile and it's not particularly plush either. So I'm a fair bit miffed that I purchased this rug under false advertising, as I was specifically looking for a higher pile and quality rug and the details are flat out wrong.
I am thrilled at the look, feel and quality of this wool rug. I was afraid that the lightest color in the center and along the edge would be too light, but it was actually a medium beige tone. The rust color around the border is deep and rich, not orange as I feared. The green is a medium olive green with some accents of darker olive in the leaves. There are also small touches of gold, black and burgundy. The pile is dense and thick. It is being used under my dining table and looks like it will wear well. My table is round. The beauty of the octagon shape is that it adds visual interest around a round table and it can be rotated to avoid the appearance of soil and wear. The rug is nice and beefy and it laid right down without even a wrinkle. It came rolled around a bolster, not folded which would have potentially creased it permanently. I used to sell area rugs and this rug is comparable to a much more expensive rug such as Nourisan or Couristan or Karastan! It could have easily cost $1,000 retail. I could not be happier and would highly recommend purchasing it.
Very pretty rug but it faded out quickly. I need to get something else to replace it. It still looks ok because the design and color are so pretty but it has not held up well.
I really love this rug. It looks like a tapestry and more expensive that the actual cost. If these colors work in your home - order it - you won't be disappointed. Note that the rug will need some sort of anti-slip something under it because it doesn't have a backing.
