This rug is beautiful and a very nice quality for the money! The ivory part of the border is a little darker than shown. It did get a small tear in the center of it during shipping (due to the way it was folded), but I was able to tape the bottom and I believe it will be fine. They were also willing to issue a small credit to my account. It was too nice to return as they were out of stock at the time. We are putting it in a room intended for a baby grand piano and I believe it will be lovely!
