Although the name of the rug has the word RED in it, there is NO red in the rug. It is EXACTLY as pictured. It arrived very very quickly, in perfect condition. This is a high quality rug at unbelievable pricing. The feel of it underfoot is very soft, not scratchy at all...and nice and thick pile. I am thrilled with this rug...looks, quality and style.....and it matches our livingroom perfectly!
