I ordered this rug and I thought it was going to be more muted, and it's not at all. However, it's still pretty, well made, and somewhat heavy. It is also kind of squishy under our feet, something which I would never have imagined with this kind of weave. Cheetah/leopard is timeless and goes with everything, so I expect to have this rug for a long time. I have the big room sized one, the 8'9 x 11"9 and it also hides dirt and lint very well. I have 10 grandkids, so you can imagine the stuff that gets dropped in it and it still looks wonderful. I would totally recommend this.
The colors and design of this rug are beautiful...it has a subtle shading in the background that make the leopard spots look "real" compared to many other leopard spot carpet designs. It is heavy and thick and laid flat on the floor. But this is a hooked rug; while it is beautiful, its quality is uncertain. The loops were not uniform; some were loose and floppy. (I can imagine how the loops would pull and unravel; some started to do so despite minimum traffic for the two weeks I had it on the floor. ) I returned it and Overstock was a pleasure to work. I will buy from Overstock again...soon! (I actually already did - since I bought a zebra rug just a few days after returning this leopard one.)
I also bought the 2'6"x12' runner. Nice colors - peppy pattern but still reads as a neutral classic that goes with most styles. The black edging isn't completely looped down in all places, and in some places there are spaces, but I still love it. I read that another reviewer said she just filled in the spaces with a black permanent marker. I haven't done that yet but probably will. Pretty soft underfoot. Love that it's wool and was 1/2 the price of two other sites that have these exact same rugs! My husband loves it, too, and our styles don't always line up.
I am very, very pleased with this rug. It is a beautiful print and the rug is heavy and durable. It is nice and soft, which was important to me since I'm using it on the floor in the playroom where my twin 3 year olds play on the floor. It is warm underfoot but still soft and comfortable to the touch. The colors are beautiful. At first I wasn't going to buy this rug since it was much more expensive than I had planned, but I'm really happy that I did. This rug is perfect.
