I bought the 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 foot version of this rug. The weight and thickness are luxurious. Much more than I'd expected for the money.The size and colors are great for my room. As soon as I ordered my black and red furniture, I started worrying how to get blues in the room. This rug solved all my problems - practically any jewel tones would go with it and there's no doubt that I'm aiming for modern design.The blues are a bit lighter - more marine or medium blue and gray-blue than dark-medium. The reds and others are true to the color on my monitor. There's a definite nap - colors vary in value from different directions.It's still shedding a bit after filling my Dyson vacuum at least once a week for 5 weeks.
