I have been looking locally and on-line for an attractive and reasonably priced rug. There are many rugs in this world, and some very expensive rugs. As well, I waffled back and forth with choices from Overstock. I was looking for an overall neutral rug and this one hit the spot. The colors shown on my computer are almost accurate. As mentioned by another reviewer, the inset on the border is slightly more soft sage than leaning towards a soft blue tone. Other than that, color accurate. The red in the rug is a chili pepper red, not a wine tone. On the floor, it is very soft in color and comfort. As with all rugs, when new especially, they do loose fibers. Even hand knotted rugs with work up fibers as well. Expect to vacuum up a good amount of wool fibers for a time. It will get better. Also, there will be some short 1/8" twists that will come up............snip these, do not pull these. As well, use the proper pad for wood floors. I had one cut locally at a furniture/carpet store. The rug is a true 9 x 12. If you do have a dog that is a digger and digs frequently this rug or any rug could be damaged. My rug came within a few days, though it said longer when ordered. It was down for Thanksgiving and my family helped get it situatied. It weighs about 100 lbs. I love it, yall!!
