Originally ordered this rug but called back to cancel when I found another I liked better. Seems couldn't cancel because already in the processing mode so thought Id be sending back when arrived. Im so glad I unwrapped to be sure. When I it layed out on my wood floor.. turns out this was my favorite. It is really a beautiful rug and now lays in my front entryway. It does shed like others have stated reviewing these type rugs, but as with all the others I have ordered, Im sure it will stop in time... I love this rug. I have bought several from Overstock and love each one.. nice and thick with rich colors - very classy. The picture is pretty true to the colors.. rust on side may be shade darker but overall, what you see is what you get. You won't be sorry on this one.. it is BEAUTIFUL!
