It has been quite a few months since we got our rug. We have put it thru the "family test." It has passed with flying colors! It replaced the much smaller, but more costly rug i had in the living room. It is not as plush, but that is about the only difference. AND - I knew it wouldn't be when I ordered it. I will say that the first thing my guests comment on when they come in is how lovely it is. I agree. The colors were perfect. The design is not overwhelming. It has the muted colors of aqua, light blue, sand & brown blending in with the off white background. It has held up to 2 cats, a dog, grand kids, etc. It is a pleasure & easy to vacuum unlike my other rug that i constantly struggled with being able to maneuver the vacuum. I sincerely wish i had found this one first and saved myself a lot of money. If you order one of these rugs, I sincerely doubt you will be disappointed. It is soft and comfortable to walk or lay on. (pet & grand kid approved of for the laying & playing on part! ) Shipping was done in timely manner. We are very, very pleased.
