I read enough reviews to know that the color on the picture was not accurate. I found this rug on another website with a slightly better picture matching what people have described. This rug is mainly a taupe, or chocolate milk to cocoa color. The border is a soft, slate blue. There is ivory, light and dark sage green, navy, red to rust, gold, and dark brown in the pattern. This rug is thick, plush, soft and beautiful. From Safavieh. Made in India. I ordered the 2x4 first to see if the color suited my needs. Based on that, I ordered the 9'6"x13'6", 4x6, and some pads for all three rugs. My husband is tired of hearing me say "I love the new rugs!!!" I had previously bought a poly/acrylic rug at a local furniture store and took it back the next day. I spent more on that poly rug I returned, than I did on the three rugs from Overstock, plus the three best pads, and two gorgeous leather storage ottomans (also from Safavieh) I am more than thrilled! :) About the shedding, ALL wool rugs shed to varying degrees. My vacuum is certainly collecting wool, but I would expect this to subside over time. After 20+ years of vacuuming after Labradors, it doesn't phase me.
