I originally purchased this rug for my living room. I now have it underneath my dining room table. While it looks good (very much like the picture), it does tend to shed quite a bit. However, I've only had it for a few months so I hope it gets better as time passes. I got to the point where I basically hand picked off anything that I'd otherwise vacuum as the vacuum would take fabric out of the rug and I'd end up with clumps of wool everywhere. I would recommend for a lower traffic area that you don't need to clean a lot.
This plushy rug's color is as described. Expect a rich truffle brown with center lines that vary intermittently with golds and tans, providing a slight shimmer. I used it to ground a conversation area in a large living room, but it would be appropriate in a dining room, bedroom or office. It sells elsewhere for much more.Before use, airing it outdoors is needed, since its protective plastic shipping case has a chemical odor.
This item is exactly as described. I am very happy with the quality and appearance of the rug. And although they give 2-6 weeks allowance for delivery, I received mine within 1 week. Other than the fact that it pills (which all new rugs do), I am very content with the rug and love the way it looks in my living room!
