I had been looking at a very similar rug at *** but they were out of stock. I ordered this rug in red. It is a very nice rug! The color is a wine/cranberry color. Nice plush feel. I'm happy with the natural fibers (wool and cotton) as it does not have a chemical smell at all (although it does smell like new wool). This rug is well made. At half the price of the *** rug I was ready to buy, I'm very pleased with this. It also arrived just 7 days after I ordered it--much faster than I expected!
