I bought two of these rugs to unite my dining and living room I bought both colors the sand and the taupe. These rugs are beautiful!! They look elegant and feel wonderful under your feet and they appear to be well made especially for the price!! My only complaint is that the sand looked much lighter and more like an ivory on the computer, but it is true to it's name. The taupe looked like it had a slight red tint to it but is much more of a light brown (like whole wheat toast) than I thought the picture looked. At first I thought Overstock had sent me the wrong rug. I love them both anyways and cant wait to get them down in my rooms!
