I love this rug! The brown is a rich-looking color and I love the striations that show up in the picture. There is a little bit of blue on the border that I did not really notice in the picture, but it complements the other colors really well. I ordered it on a Sunday and the rug arrived on the Friday - and shipping was only $1. Comparable rugs that I was looking at elsewhere were $600+. I was nervous about buying a rug online without seeing it in person, but I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. Just a side note - vaccuum the rug when you roll it out! It filled up my whole vaccuum insert with little fibers.
