We received this rug 2 weeks ago and are absolutely thrilled. It is very plush and soft. A small amount of shedding was noted the first week, nothing out of the ordinary for wool. The colors are lovely and compliment our family room perfectly. The quality seems excellent. We have three children and a dog so it has been receiving some "abuse" in the last few weeks, yet shows no signs of wear. The colors overall are very close to the picture- I would say beige, browns, a muted ivory, and a small amount of subtle sage green. Very, very pleased with the rug and the excellent price. Would definitely recommend!
