I purchased the black and beige area rug for the dining area in 9’10” x 13’2”. My table length is 6’ long without the leaf and 8’ with. Even when standing up there is plenty of room for the chairs to remain on the rug. The colors are very rich and bold. The black in the center is absolutely gorgeous and the red is a deep maroon. The brown bordering the black is a deep caramel. The picture does not do it justice. My dining set is a medium brown and looks great on the rug. There was no odor when placing the rug. The pile is not high but perfect for me. I am very happy with the purchase.
