Good looking, unique rug. It's thick and soft. The colors are a little duller than I expected. It's easy to vacuum, but picks up lint and dog hair like crazy! I eventually picked it up and put it away because it required daily vacuuming to keep clean. Not a good rug if you have pets!
I ordered the 5X8 version of this rug for my living room in a brownstone flat in Brooklyn. It's perfect! The exuberance of the rug design is a perfect counterpoint to the traditional moulding on both the ceiling and walls. I painted the LR a bright, glossy, cheerful purple and my couch is covered in a medium gray fabric. So this gray-based rug anchors them together beautifully. The accent colors on the gray background - teal, mauve, cream, plum - really pop. The rug feels great underfoot and great to lay down on! It did shed some for the first several days, but in my experience that's what new rugs do. A little vacuuming took care of it. I'm super pleased with my new rug (and the rug pad that's underneath). My living room is complete.
