The rug "Sunset" is simply gorgeous. The knotting, the colouring, the layout of the imagery, the dimensions - everything is perfect. I travel a lot and have acquired rugs/carpets in many countries. This piece is beautiful and a great value. Sr. Vallejo is very talented.
I've purchased several Novice rugs in the past, but nothing this large. I'm wary of getting something this big without having seen it in person, but I took the leap and I'm happy. The main difference (to my eye) between the image online and the rug in person is that the image of the rug looks lighter, more yellow/orange. In person the overall effect is more autumnal, the browns are more dominant. Either way, it's a winner, big and bold and beautiful. I have a lot of wall space, so I hung it on the wall (velcro worked great), I also I couldn't bear the thought of walking on the light colors. It felt like a risky purchase at the time but now I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
