I bought this rug for my nursery and I loved the look of it. It was soft and looked of high quality but it smelled like chemicals. Granted, I am sensitive to smells but I wasn't comfortable putting this rug in my nursery. We gave it a few days to air out but it was smelling up not only the room it was in but also the surrounding rooms. The colors were bright and beautiful just like the pictures but I just couldn't keep it. Maybe it's the polyester (plastic) fiber?
