color discrepancy
 from Louisiana,  Jun 28, 2009

I had been looking at this rug for awhile and finally decided to buy it. The quality of the rug seems superb, although I've only had it a day so time will tell. It's thick and very comfortable to walk on. I'm very happy with the quality for the price. My only disappointment has to do with the colors. The other reviews I had read that pointed out color discrepancies stated the rug colors were muted. I was okay with that because I just took it to mean they weren't as dark as they seemed. But now seeing it in person I realize the word muted isn't quite the right description. The colors are actually quite vibrant. But they are all in the cool color range rather than the warm color range. The picture depicts the colors on the warm end, so I was expecting for example a yellow toned olive green. The green color, however, is a gray/blue toned olive green. Ditto the golds, corals, etc. All tend to be in the cool range. The effect overall then is quite different from the website picture. The rug is still very nice and I won't send it back, but I was admittedly disappointed since I thought I had made a great purchase that would fit exactly what I was after. Alas, the trials of shopping online, sight unseen.
