We love this rug. It was a little on the pricey side so we were nervous to purchase it with no reviews. But we took the plunge and ended up loving it. It is plush and soft to walk on and super pretty. It does have some black in it that I didn't realize from the photo that originally surprised me, but I actually really like it. We use in our living room. The only negative about this is that it does shed. I think it needs to go through some more vacuuming before it stops. But - overall - great purchase.
