This rug is not my usual style, it's very traditional and I was hesitant when I purchased it. I wanted a rug for my dining room to dress up my table...I was not disappointed! It arrived about a week after I ordered it and the packaging/shipping material was very secure. In fact, it was raining the day it was dropped off and it didn't get wet at all after hours in the rain outside (wrapped in two separate layers of very heavy plastic). The green color is very understated, it's definitely a maroon and beige rug. It rolled out very easily and the edge didn't take long to lay flat. This rug is soooooo soft under my feet, it's wonderful. And it's elegant enough to be just what I wanted without looking too stuffy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a rug to dress up a room a little.
