Great value rug. Soft on the feet and finished well. Handsome in a room where you don't need the carpet to be the centerpiece, but want a quality floor covering. Boarder is nicely finished. You have to vacuum this rug a few times to get all the loose fibers out, but that seems pretty normal. Shipping was fast on this. You need 2 people to move this rug - it's heavy; another sign of good quality in my book.
WE wanted a rug for our family room to put on top of hardwood. We have 4 kids and a non shedding dog. This is neutral enough not to show foot traffic or small stains. When we had company over, I noticed lots of shedding due to the increased foot traffic with shoes. But on a daily basis it does not shed much. Overall we are happy with the purchase.
