We are very pleased with this purchase. I was a bit hesitant but the price was right and the shipping cost was so low - I looked at the rug every week for about a month and then we finally made the purchase. Colors are almost exactly as they appear, which is rare when there is any shade of red involved. It is more of a rust/burgandy than a dark red- which is perfect for us. Rug quality is great - it is very thick and plus - virtually no smell at all and it has done the job we wanted in warming up our bedroom and adding to the decor. Thanks Overstock - i wouldn't think twice about buying another rug from this site!
