  • The carpet was as described but the colours in the photos were vibrant and on reciept of the carpet they were not vibrant . I dont think this was intentional but more realism is needed.

    Everything re: delivery was fine, but the colours of the rug are not the ones in the pictures: red on pic was in fact brown and yellowish was beige
    So colours are not shiny as seen. Too bad
