The colors don't pop as much as the pictures may have you believing and its much thinner than I expected. It isn't as soft as some of the other comments I read said, but it doesn't feel bad to the touch either. Over all I'd give this rug a moderate rating. I don't hate it, but there isn't anything about it to make me fall in love with it.
This rug arrived with a planned life as an entry rug, for visitors to wipe their feet on. I figured that it was far less expensive than the current rug that I had at the front door so I'd make the GardenGold rug the foot wiping rug. Wrong! It's beautiful and it made me sad to think someone would muddy it up! I instead placed it in to service in my Master bathroom, which has out-dated gold faucets. The GardenGold rug makes the out-dated gold faucets look hip and cool! Who knew? I ordered a Waterhog carpet for the front door and am quite happy with both purchases from Overstock.
Should have refused delivery when the fedex guy was holding the rug in one hand. It was much lighter than expected. Decided to open after a few days -- the colors not as described but I thought I could make it work and put on floor in living room. After numerous attempts to straighten and days of trying to make it lay without scalloping up on the sides I am returning. Don't know if this one is defective or all are like this but as soon as I can figure out how to return it, it will be done. .
