The colors are beautiful and the rug arrived quickly. However, it is much thinner than I expected. Compared to other rugs I've purchased, this one has very little cushion or thickness. The biggest issue is that the edges won't stay down. Some curling of edges is expected since it has been rolled up for a long period. However, I've laid this carpet out for over 4 weeks, rolled it the opposite way, curled the edges the opposite way, and put heavy weighted objects on the end - all in an attempt to get the rug to lay flat. Short of taping it to the floor (which I am not going to do on hardwood), this rug is a tripping hazard and I'm not sure I can use it. Big disappointment. I will be very hesitant to purchase a rug again this way.
