Although this beautiful wool rug did shed a bit in the beginning it was a great buy and a wonderful addition to my family room. The rug is on a Brazilian cherry hardwood floor and it blends beautifully with the dark flooring and the adjacent cream colored porcelin tiles in my kitchen and dining room. The colors in the rug are very true to the picture. I like the touches of blood red, gold, and the greenish hue to the tan color. The quality is excellent!
