The pictures unfortunately, do not show the detail of the Ivory Rug, which was ordered, so color comparison is difficult. However, the rug is detailed and the colors more separated than appear on the overall picture, meaning there is more of the primary color of the rug than appears in the picture, especially around the borders. The burgundy is true and it has many subtle beige, blond, tan and cream variations which are clearly separated by black and charcoal subtleties. The rug has a rich appearance and both appears and feels to be a more expensive rug. Nothing in the rug is overbearing. It adds warmth to the family room and blends perfectly with the colors of the decor. It complements the mahogany floor and mahogany furniture beautifully. The advertised size was fairly accurate (2 inches shorter in width than advertised), the rug rolled out flat with no kinks or damage and the estimated delivery date was DEAD on. The rug arrived only 2 days after shipping (from the east coast to the gulf south), which was quite impressive. I would certainly recommend Caroline Medale rugs to anyone. Very nice.
