I have to start by saying that I have purchased several wool rugs from Overstock and have never been disappointed with the quality. I am a bargain shopper and have yet to find anyone that can beat O's quality and prices on rugs. The downfall to shopping for a rug online is that the descriptions and pictures are not always true to the actual item. This rug is beautiful in design and quality; however the colors are different than what you see in the picture. Hopefully I can save other buyers the hassle of rolling the dice on whether this rug will match their color scheme. First, the red on this rug is a blood red and is not as bright as you see in the pic. It's not maroon or burgandy, it's a deep blood red. The border is definitely black but what appear to be gold accents, are actually more of a dull tan leaning toward a muddy green. There are no real gold tones in this rug. The main colors on this rug are sage and red. There is a LOT of sage, which unfortunately was not what I expected. Bottom line, if you're looking for a rug with deep red and sage that has some black in it, this is the rug for you! A very thick rug with no shedding and crisp detailing. Looks a lot more expensive than the $**** you're paying for it. Worth your money, especially if these are the colors that you need. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the description and pictures are not true to the actual item. I am very happy with the quality. I'm not returning it because for the money, this is a great deal even if the colors are a little off from what I was expecting.
