I purchased the 6 x 6 square version of this rug. I have heard other reviewers say that the color was not true to the picture. If you look at the picture of the round version of this rug you'll get a true depiction of the colors. It is true that the colors are more of a muted teal/slate blue color. I believe that the colors are so muted that they will accent any Decor. The rug is luxurious and has a substantial pile. Even though the colors are muted, they are vivid-if that makes sense to you. As the other reviewers have stated, I have seen this rug and at least twice the price in different stores. I purchased the 6 x 6 size to use as an accent in my sitting area of my master bedroom. It is surrounded by two club chairs and a large ottoman that I also purchased from Overstock. It makes my bedroom look put together as of a professional decorator had done it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this rug and LOVE Overstock. They are the best. I purchased anything I can from overstock. This rug is definitely quality and I would've paid twice the price for it. The rug has not been shedding.
