This rug is very plush and has beautiful colors. There is no need for anything under the rug as it is very heavy. I ordered the rug originally on July 17, and UPS lost it. Yes, lost it. I am not sure how you lose a 7X10 rug, but they did. UPS said that it had been given the wrong code on the shipping label. Uh Huh. So I called Overstock to whine and they were very nice and ordered me another rug. Long story short, I am very tickled with this purchase and the rug looks amazing in its new space in our living room.
This rug is exactly as expected. The color is a rich brown with tan, deep red (or maroon) and some very nice blue and green accents. It is colorful without being loud. The pile is soft but seems tightly woven and durable. We had a rug pad already but you wouldn't really need one with this rug if you didn't want one. We have dogs who shed a lot and the hair vacuums up quite well. So far we have not experienced any spills but I anticipate that they would clean up easily. This rug is in our family room and will get a lot of traffic. We have only had it for a couple of weeks but we think that it will hold up well for a long time to come!
