Overall, for the price, you can't beat this rug. It is thin, but we needed thin and it looks like it is fuller. It has been a few weeks now and I am still waiting for it to flatten down where it had been rolled so tightly but that seems to be happening. I had to get used to the color difference. You can't tell from the image but the darker taupe/tan shades in the picture are actually more gold. I may not have ordered it if I had known that but I find it does look OK. The other colors - the flowers - are more muted, but enough of the color is there to accent what I have in the room. The other surprise was that for the first week the rug "shed" - tufts of stuff. That would be important if there are young children in the family. That seems to have stopped. We are generally quite pleased with this rug, would buy another if/when needed but this time we would be more prepared.
