The beige/cream background is only part of the story...the pattern itself is a lovely rust-ish orange, very pale blue, peach/beige and dove grey. It's a lovely warm pattern while still being light enough in color to keep an already dark room from getting too heavy.
I purchased this rug to protect the new hardwood floors we had installed from any stray embers from the fireplace. I chose the rust color and just love the way it looks against our new floors and used brick fireplace. The colors and design are perfect and the pile is nice and thick. Definitely a good value for the price.
This rug is bare foot comfortable. The colours are softer than what is shown and has more of an rust-pink-sage hue than the dark burgundy-black shown in the picture. The inner rug patterns are spaced further out and will display the rust-pink predominately. You will need to vacuum more because it doesn't hide lint as well as a darker toned rug. It will loose pile a bit after use, but minimal.
