I needed a large for a high traffic area ( family room) that would look nice with exsisting furniture and not break the bank. This rug came in a large size at a resonable price. The color description is a little off while listed as "Ivory/Rust" I think the ivory is actually more of a dark cream with a yellow undertone. The colors work well together, but if you have yellow in the room I think it would clash a bit. We like the rug and it is a bright addition in the family room and holding up really well. I would buy again.
