I was hesitant because the color match for area rugs posted on Overstock has been hit or miss. This one is pretty close to the picture. It is slightly more maroon / dark brown on one side of the rug but throughout it is predominantly Olive with hints of gold when viewing it from an angle. The rug is plush and comprised of a soft wool and of high quality. This area rug weighs a ton compared to other rugs I have received from Overstock or any other place for that matter and I believe it is because of how dense the pattern is and the type of wool and backing used. It is worth every dollar spent. You can certainly tell it is hand knotted and not hand or machine tufted. I would definitely recommend it to someone looking to add a rug to a room that gets a bit of light because it is slightly on the darker side. I like the color and pattern the most and don't really have a dislike just would've preferred it was a shade closer to the stock photo. Further Update: think of this as a rug color that transitions depending on the light of the room and your angle of view. It transitions from a light green and gold color (see Overstock photos) to a dark olive, maroon/brown highlights (my photos). Love it even more for that reason (like having a pearl paint on a car that changes based on a number of factors). Also, after having my dog give it a go around, it doesn't appear to shed that much or if at all.
