We just ordered several rugs and thankfully we loved all of them! We ordered this design in the 7'6"x9'6" and the 2'x3'. It is a thinner rug, but soft to the touch. I would definitely recommend a rug pad under the larger rug. We actually had a piece of carper padding cut from our local home improvement store and it makes this rug feel very comfortable. We LOVE the colors. There are several different shades/hues of grays in this rug which make it very easy to match/coordinate with other grays. Most of our great room and kitchen are done in darker grays. We were having a hard time finding a rug that didn't clash. This rug works beautifully and it has the contemporary design we were looking for. The price is a steal!!! This is the same rug that is currently (jan2015) carried at a popular home store that starts with the last letter in the alphabet. Overstock has it for half the price!! I definitely give this a 10 out of 10!
