The rug is beautiful, but it is not the colors stated. While I realize that different dye lots cause the finished product to be slightly different from rug to rug, this rug is not gold. Some have said it is sage green, but mine does not have the gray finish of sage green. I would say a muted olive with cream and rust accents. It is a beautiful rug, and I am very happy with my choice. Overstock is very good to deal with and I have been very happy with what I have bought here.
