My decision for this one was based in large part on great reviews; really deserved! It's really gorgeous - dense, rich, heavy, and looks way more expensive than it is. The overall effect is actually more earthy than gold - I actually like the colors better than I did in the (pretty close) site picture. It'd work very well with a lot of different color schemes and room styles. I purchased a different rug for my dining room, and it's lovely (same very good brand), but this is truly one of the nicest rugs I've owned. I love Overstock - this is MUCH better than anything in that price range I've seen in stores. Very fast delivery, too.
