I ordered the navy rug. The color is a lot darker than shown in the picture. It is a nice rich dark navy. The patern on the edge of the rug is kind of muddled and not so easy to make out. The rug itself is also thinner than what I was hoping for. It will definately need a carpet pad under it. I have another more expensive area rug in my dinning and you can see a huge difference between the two rugs. But considering the price I paid for it it was a pretty good deal. With three small children I would rather have this rug than a more expensive one in our living room. I would be a lot more upset if they spilled juice on a $700 rug then this one. That being said this rug will do until my kids are old enough and I can get a higher quality rug. If you are looking for a practical, functional rug this is it but if you are looking for elegance and quality keep looking.
