I have been looking for this color of a rug for 1 year to go with a chandelier I purchased. Finally ecarpetgallery came out with the perfect matching color I needed. My search is over! With most Persian vintage rugs you have to sacrifice comfort for color, which is the case here. If your looking for a soft carpet with somewhat of a raised pile this is not the one. Although this check the box for color it does not check the box for comfort. This rug is very structured and some what stiff, the feel is almost like cardboard to the point that you can hear the sound when walking on it. I thought adding a plush pad would help, it did not. The nature of the rug is not to be soft but there's no doubt that this rug will out last my life time.
The rug is exactly as described. It is a good quality for the price. I was hesitant to order it since it was a semi-antique rug but Overstock guarantees the rug. The rug does appear to be slightly lighter (color) in the pictures.
This rug is lovely and looks just like the photo. A couple of things to think about, though. One is that the rug isn't very straight -- not uncommon in hand-made rugs. The other is that you should look at the bottom of the rug in the photo -- to see how the color changes for the last 2 feet or so. A little distracting but still very pretty.
