This is lovely in the "Countryside" palette. It is a beautiful addition to our living area. The braids are like ropes of calico. We added a rug pad underneath and it is very comfortable and kid-friendly. No knowledge yet of durability. Arrived well-packaged and was easy to bring into the house. Lays flat quickly. Slight scent like fabric softener or a dryer sheet; faded within days. Great value for the size and price. Happy it is made in USA. Would buy again; am considering another for a different room.
