I purchased this rug in burgandy, needing a full-size room rug and was pleasantly surprised at the plushness of the rug. It is much thicker and softer than a rug that you would purchase from Khols, J.C.Penney or a home store of the same size - and you would spend twice the price for this size rug at any of those stores. The color in the picture is a bit deceiving - the burgandy has more of a blue or purple undertone than a red - but it worked perfectly with my furniture. It is not a garish purple, just not the red-toned burgandy that one usually thinks of. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a large rug at a very, very reasonable price. Shipping was great, as well. I placed my order and the rug arrived two days later. It has turned my drab living room into the real formal living space that it was meant to be.
