Outstanding rug for the price! Very minimal shedding. Not super plush, but thick enough and soft enough for my toddler. The colors are darker than appear on screen and are not as described. The blue is really more of a teal color. The beige field (background) color is darker than I expected. The colors that stand out are rust, sage,chocolate, and goldenrod. The pattern is lovely and if these were the colors I needed, this rug would be a keeper. It has a warm hue over all and I was hoping for cooler colors. If these colors work for you, this rug is an outstanding value for the price. Beautifully made, super fast shipping. Has Pottery Barn look to it at half the price. The image shown may be of a smaller size because the pattern is more spread out on the 7'6" x 9'6". Pattern is bigger, more open and less busy. Looks more transitional than traditional. Would totally recommend!
