I must say, when I received this rug I was afraid to open it. It looked so dark! However, I'm VERY glad that I had a moment of courage. The color is indeed darker than the picture, but it looks great against my dark wood floors. If you are standing on the rug, the area where you are standing looks the darkest, and the area farthest away looks much lighter. The parts of the flowers that look white in the picture are actually beige. It is shedding, but that is quite normal for wool rugs. Several friends have seen it and like it a lot, as do my husband and I. It added some much needed color to our living area. The backing is soft so it will not scratch the floors while we wait for the rug pad to arrive. Another bonus: it is cut pile so my cat's claws will not snag it and cause pulls. Tip: Be sure to get a rug pad with real 100% rubber if you need non-slip. Most waffle-type pads from box stores are simply sprayed with chemicals which can rub off and stain your floors over time. And they're smelly!
