The quality and workmanship on this rug is outstanding for the price. The rug is thick and luxurious. It coordinates well with my authentic turkish rugs. There was minimal curling from the packaging; overnight, it was laying flat on the floor. I gave it a 4 on appearance, not because there is anything wrong with it - it is a beautiful rug, however the description and other reviews indicated it had more prominent shades of sage and blue. In fact, my rug is overal a golden/honey shade. The blue is minimal, but provides a nice highlight. The majority of the blue is located in the center and is covered by my dining table. It is a lovely rug overall and I highly recommend it.
