Of course we viewed all of the reviews so were not suprised that the colors are not as "vibrant" as depicted in the photo. It looks BEAUTIFUL against our hardwood floors and complements saddle colored leather furniture. The rug is all that I expected...plush and well made. Subtle colors allow many color choices to meld. I was looking for a rug that wasn't so "traditional"...fits the eclectic home choices I've made...no regrets. Yay!
