I have looked for a rug like this for years. I read other reviews and decided to take a chance and I'm so glad I did. I have a green sectional sofa and dark wood floors, taupe walls. The softness of colors gives such a beautiful contrast. I have had the rug for the better part of a month and have had very little shedding. I still get a little heart flutter when I see it in my family room. I couldn't be happier. Thank you, overstocked.
