My brother and I gave this rug to our Mom for Christmas. She is very hard to please, however, this rug did the trick. She loves it. It is so well made, the colors are just wonderful. It brought the room to life. It does look different on the floor than on the computer screen. Much better! The gold was soft and the red is almost a brick that blends well with other shades of red. It is just magnificent! We ordered this rug only a week before Christmas and it arrived right on time for the big day. Thanks Overstock.com for making our Mom's Christmas so special.
