We received this rug today. It is gorgeous and very soft. The colors are not quite like on line, however the gold is more of a pale ivory yellow, the brown is a golden brown and the other color is a very light sage green. The colors are still extremely neutral, the background is a very light off white but I would not describe any of the colors as beige. The "suns" are a pulled chenille-like ribbon which will definitely not work well with a powerful vacuum cleaner; they rise about a 1/4" off the rug.We are already planning on buying another rug because this one goes perfect in our living room but we purchased it for our lake house! I love you Overstock.com. I ordered the rug on Monday, it arrived Thursday morning. Very fast. I highly recommend a rug pad because the back is a wool or solid woven cotton and will be very slippery on a wood floor.
