"I'd been looking at area rugs for over a year, trying to find the right combination of colours and pattern. This one is perfect to go with my denim blue sofa and taupe walls. Yes, the colours are just as featured - denim blue I would call it. My sister who'd also been looking at rugs said she couldn't find anything in this colour in any store. It arrived quickly though I live in Canada. It is soft and just the right thickness."
