From, the moment I unrolled this, I loved it. It's exactly as pictured. It's thick, seems well made and the colors go with most anything you put on it. I purchased this for our family room, and against the darker hardwood floors, it looks stunning. Our furniture is mostly charcoal in color and looks fantastic with this rug. Both my husband and I are incredibly please with the purchase and I would absolutely recommend it to friends looking for a large area rug.
The carpet is thick and holds up well. Spot cleaning is a breeze. The only negative I have about this carpet is that, on the larger size carpet the design does not show the same as it does in the picture. I was expecting the blue to show more but on a larger scale it does not.
Looks great and feels very nice! I haven't experienced any "shedding" at all. The only problem was with delivery as I wasn't aware that someone should be at home to sign for the delivery in person. We ended up having the (very heavy) rug delivered to the FedEx location and picking it up from there.
