Unfortunately in this case, you get what you pay for in rugs. The material was cheap looking and feeling. It was a very thin pile and just looked very cheap. I returned it the next day, which was exceptionally easy thanks to Overstock.com.
This rug is beautiful and soft. It is plush, but is much more comfortable with a rug pad. Color is navy. The pattern is an oatmeal color, not white! Great rug and holding up well in a high traffic area in our family room. Only complaint is the dark rug shows lint and pet hair easily!
