This 4x6 rug looks exactly as it did in the photo. Color matched perfectly in the space it was intended for. Also, the natural cotton border (to me) is more attractive than the black. In past I had a similar rug with a black cotton border. It's just a matter of personal taste, of course. I also really like the rubber/type backing. It causes it to stay in place. Another plus! Have considered buying another. It's just the rug I have in other space is one that I like also -- I'll have to decide I guess. All in all wonderful purchase from Overstock. Thanks.
