I purchased this rug to match the black 8' round Kashan Heritage wool rug.The round rug is under my round kitchen table and the 4'x6' rug is in the adjacent room. Even though the colors in the photos appear different, these rugs ARE the same colors. Minimal shedding and absolutely no odor. Excellent quality. I am amazed that Overstock can sell these rugs for such low prices. Definitley has an old-world look which is exactly the image I was aiming for. Love it!
