A great rug for the money! It may not last forever but for what I need it is perfect. I love the pattern. It's a very flat weave-which I like. The cream is a nice ivory, not yellow at all. I bought two rugs for my eating area and family room and absolutely love them. They were not so expensive that I will be sad to switch them out in a few years. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. And everyone thinks so too!
