I read the customer reviews and the detailed product info regarding this rug before purchasing. Not sure I agree with the color description; sage green is the predominant color, it is inaccurate to say that it has a gold border because the gold just melts into the green. Other colors in this rug are; moss green, rust, several shades of taupe, brown and muted tones of gold. It is a thick, high quality and well made rug but I'd hoped for a slightly different coloration. As many other OS.com customers seem to do I will keep this rug and use it in the intended area. It doesn't make sense to return a 22lb rug and pay the return shipping. As Tim Gunn from Project Runway says: "Make it work"! One final note; when reviewing a product please try to be as specific as possible about the colors and quality. Other customers depend on these reviews!
