I got this rug based on the many reviews that the colors were NOT what was pictured so it was a bit risky for me. The red is NOT a vivid red but more of a rust and the yellow is more golden rather than a bright yellow. The green is more sage green, not a leaf green. But this was all exactly what I was looking for and what others had said so I took a chance and went for it. It is just perfect. It does shed quite a bit but it's wool and that's what wool does. It's a natural fiber so it's not like you're inhaling some nasty, man-made, petroleum based, chemical fiber. It's not super thick but it doesn't say it is either. I ordered the non-skid pad and it added to the plushness a bit but really, being on a wood floor, if it sat too high we'd be tripping on the edge all the time anyway. The edge did need to be weighted down for a few weeks to make it flatten out from being rolled but a heavy-ish throw rug did the trick and now it's fine without it there. I love it and an extremely happy with it. This is my 2nd Overstock.com rug and I'd never go anywhere else for one. Prices are great and these reviews really help with any questions or concerns. And here's a tip... if you sign up for Club-O, the 5% back covers the sign-up fee so make sure to join before you purchase the rug! It ends up being free and also gets you free shipping for a year!
