This rug is gorgeous and very high quality for the price. The pile is mixed and is tight and plush. The colors are gorgeous - not too bright but still make a statement. I would love to find another rug just like this in a coordinating pattern!
This rug has beautiful colors and adds a warmth and vibrancy to our living room - we are overall satisfied. What was not clear from the description/picture is that it is textured and has a combination of looped and cut pile... we might not have ordered if we had known there was some looped pile, due to having cats who really enjoy clawing that type of texture. The other slight disappointment is that our rug was not symmetrical in color as pictured, meaning the prominent red that appears in the middle of the picture on the product listing was not placed in the same way on our rug. Rather there is the same bright red about one third in, with the width of the band similar to the picture, and then another chevron stripe of the same color in a narrower width about two thirds in, so the center is a darker color... I don't mind it so much but my husband was disappointed as he places a high value on symmetry. May not be a big deal to some. Also, it is not what I would call soft on bare feet, but we put a thick felt pad underneath though, and it is still very comfortable to walk on especially in contrast to our hardwood floors.
