This rug has a nice rich color to it, but it is more green than brown/orange like the picture. I have green in my room so this rug blended in nicely with the furniture and so forth, but if you don't have green as part of your color scheme, you might want a different product. The rug is thick and has good weight. It sheds some but I think this is pretty common as it is wool. Very satisfied with this rug.
