I am so delighted to have received such a beautiful and unique piece. After I ordered the rug, I began to have doubts because my sofa collection is dark brown distressed leather, I felt it may be TOO much brown. I was trying to decide if maybe I could hang it on the wall -- Once the rug arrived and I placed it in my Livingroom-- there was no decision-- IT WAS STAYING. WOW-- There are several shades of brown leather weaved together in a fray pattern. This is truly a beautiful piece and the photo in NO WAY does it justice-- I also priced this piece at a gallery--($2500+ and no where near this quality) Thanks Overstock for once again being THE BEST!!!!!!
