I received this carpet 2 days ago and it was so well wrapped I had to call in a team to release it. It unfurled like it had never spent any time rolled up and I was able to place it right away. It is nice and plushy, good to your feet, and a really classically beautiful rug. I love that the binding is dark brown which the carpet it replaced was bound in beige and was high maintenance. It sits on a tile floor in a small living room between 2 beige sofas and the room has a welcome, cozy, inviting appearance.
