I was looking for a new rug to replace an 8 year old pottery barn wool rug in my living room. This one is perfect! The colors are gold, beige, very light sage blue, and a wonderful splash of cinnamon/rust. The overall color is light and this may be a consideration for those with kids that may eat or drink on the rug. The rug looks and feels similar to a pottery barn rug. I haven't had an excessive amount of shedding as some reviewers reported. It seems to be about the same as other wool rugs I have bought- initially some shedding then it subsides. The rug is beautiful and a great value!
