I love the colors in this rug...mostly sage green, some light blue, dark blue, beige and gray. True to color as pictured. Very thick and soft. Don't need a pad underneath, it doesn't seem likely to move around (I got the 5'x8' size), and the back isn't scratchy (so it shouldn't scratch hard wood floors). My biggest concern was actually that my cat would want to tear it up right away, but I put a scratching post next to it and it's been working like a charm, he uses that instead. Delivery was prompt, I feel I got a good deal for the price, nothing negative to say! Don't hesitate to buy this rug!
