I've had this rug for over a year now, and it's in great shape. I got the large size that covers my entire living room. My 65 lbs. dog lays on it, chews his toy; and he's never been able to damage the rug. My good friend split red wine on it, we quickly got a towel, pressed; and it came right up. I love the modern pattern, and it will match any living room colors. I've received many complements on the rug as well.
The other reviews convinced me to purchase this rug and it lives up to the ratings. I love the colors, which will tie in with nearly any decor. That's especially important because we are still furnishing our new home. It is thick enough to be comfortable when sitting and walking on it. Most importantly, the day after we put it down on the hardwoods, the baby learned to crawl! She had previously been slipping and sliding on the wood floor and very frustrated. This gave her the cushion and friction she needed. Now she's cruising and we don't worry about the occasional fall. Sounds like an ad, but this is true. Buy the rug!!
We already had purchased area rugs from Overstock that we were very happy with, they were black background with an off with contemporary design and really liked them, great value for the price. However, we recently adopted a light colored dog and although she has short hair she sheds. This shows up really badly on the black background. This color is light enough that the dog hair is not an issue. Great value for the price and does exactly what we needed it to do.
