I bought a couple of these runners, along with coordinating small area rugs. The rugs are a little darker than the photos suggest, and I would describe them as a warm mahogany rather than wine colored. They're more brown than red in color. Because I was flexible with my color choice, these worked well for my purpose. I haven't noticed any/much shedding, and the rugs did not have a weird smell out of the package either, which can be an issue sometimes. One minor issue is that the rugs come rolled up, and two months later some of the edges are still curling upwards. Overall I'm very satisfied.
I received the Amalfi Flora Area rug Runner and it is just as lovely and exquisite as the 2 - 5by7 and an additional smaller area rug all in the same pattern. We had some wall to wall carpeting installed in our family room last week and the carpet installer could not believe the reasonable prices I paid for these rugs and the superior quality at Overstock.com. I did get the red and the color is just perfect with my decor and and pattern compliments the furniture and accessories in my living and dining rooms. Friends who have visited are stunner to hear the price and see the qualtiy of all 4 rugs.
