I sent this rug to my son for Christmas and he loved it. I saw it when I visited recently. It is a different color than what the picture shows. The colors are a true burgandy with a light tan and a much softer gold. The background has a cream color also. It is much prettier in person and the colors are softer. The rug is very thick and heavy. I would hightly recommend this. It also sells on another site at a much higher price. I have found Overstock to have good pricing specifically on their rugs and have purchased quite a few.
