The rug came and I can not be more thrilled with how it compliments the room. I was nervous ordering it, because it is listed as being gold. In my head and by the photo I was hoping it would look more like the color of seagrass and thankfully to me it does. Don't get me wrong it does have some yellow in it and would not work in every room, but our hardwoods have a slight gold tone as does a lot of my decor. It blends well with everything I already own and the pattern was just what this room needed. Somehow it just works.
