Rug arrived today and I really love it. Better than I had hoped. The colors are more slightly more subdued and "grown up" than what the picture on here indicates, in a good way. Still rich color, just not so "bright/neon" as the pic, which I was hoping for. The tan/browns are really great. I have this in my small apt-size living room with lots of tan, green, brown leather. Quality and thickness is excellent. I bought a rug pad, but one isn't needed, necessarily.
