This rug arrived within a few weeks and all I can say is that it was beyond my expectations. The colors are desgines of muted blue-gray, brick-red, light-brown, seafoam-green, and light-gray, all set on a sandy-taupe background. The blue-gray centered sun design helps to break up the right-angles of any room while the softness of the color palate works to create a foundation for multiple design schemes. I chose to paint my room the same color as the rug background and use red and gray accents. I can see endless possibilites with this rug and the quality is easily 4 times what I have paid. The only caution is to exect shedding for the first few months. I had to vacuum every other day for the first month, but it has been about 2 months and it's stopped now. The rug is very soft and thick but I would still recommend a rug pad if you are using on a wood/tile surface.
