This rug surpassed my expectations. I thought it would be fine, but I actually love it. The colors are rich, and it feels great underfoot. Pleasantly surprised by how great it looks. I added a Home Depot foam carpet pad underneath, and rolled one end back on itself for a couple hours and that more or less solved the rug's slight tendency to curl up along the edge. Really pleased--for this price, you cannot get a better look and feel.
