I wasn't sure I would ever order from Overstock again. I wasn't pleased with the quality of the sheets I had ordered a couple of years ago and wasn't sure I could trust the reviews. But a friend had ordered a couple of rugs from Overstock with success so I reconsidered. I am glad I did. This rug is exactly what I expected and wanted. It isn't shedding at all. The colors are beautiful. It is difficult to tell from photos what the colors might be but this was close enough -- sage green, rust red, a bit of warm dusty rose, light and darker browns and some dusty golden tones. The background is cream (not a white cream but more of a warm cream/beige). It arrived within three days of ordering too. Great value. I highly recommend this rug.
