I'm writing this because there were no other reviews when I bought it, so I felt I needed to add one for those of us who rely on reviews. First of all, all the rugs I really want are in the thousands of dollars... beautiful wool Persians. So, that's my taste. However, I have kids, dogs, cats, a budget, and you know a real life. So, I needed a rug that would fulfill my aesthetic needs but also be good for my life. This rug is good for that. I'm not in love with it, but I didn't expect to be. But for now, it's good. It's soft, seems to be much more easily cleanable than wool, and has a decent design. The colors are not too vibrant (as in obnoxious vibrant) which seems to be the case with the other rugs in the Evoke line. It is NOT brownish tan-ish as in the pictures, rather more silver or sand, depending on the angle. For my needs and the price, I'm happy. I like an antique looking house, and while this looks like a "now" rug, with the right accents in the room, it'll do for now.
