Design is not so clear on the rug as the pile makes interesting patterns as you walk or drag stuff on it. It works to "distress" the look however. The rug is thinner than I am used to so you definitely need a rug pad. It's soft and comfortable however. My only complaint is that it seems to shed. I am hoping this stops after a while.
I was nervous ordering such a large rug online sight unseen, but was pleased when it arrived to find it has a tighter weave than I thought it would and is quite soft. It blends well with the entire room which is largely beige, with a dark orange wall and dark brown floors and tables. Couches are a caramel color. The print on the rug is faint enough to have printed furniture right up on it and the 2 patterns don't compete. Rug rolled out flat with no curling on the ends or corners. Gives the room an expensive, finished look.
This is a truly beautiful rug. Very happy with colors and quality. It is shedding a bit, but that's to be expected with a new rug. We're using it in a 3 season porch and it gives the space a very cozy feel. FYI...the packaging was damaged in transit. When I emailed Overstock they automatically sent a new carpet. Turns out the original carpet was fine, and FedEx picked up the second carpet with no charge to me.
