The colors are not as pictured on my computer screen. The blue is not the steal-blue shown, but rather an aqua blue. The burgundy is rust. We have a brick red sofa and it works! These colors do "pop". The tan, gold and olive colors are more muted and understated. Even though the colors were different than I expected I love it. The color combination is very rich. The quality is excellent. I have a $4000 Karastan in my dining room - this rug is of equal quality (the only difference is this one does shed slightly, not bad though). Overall the rug is gorgeous and I am extremely pleased with it.
