Perfect for our TV room, where a 8 year old and 5 year old, plus 3 dogs spend considerable time. Its coarse, but doesn't shed. I love the shade of dull grey/ blue, which is somewhat brightened by the white, geometric lines. Looks very mid-century modern, with clean lines and no fuss. Easy to clean-- our newly adopted 13 lb rescued dog decided to use it as her bathroom. The rug cleaned up EXTREMELY easily-- with paper kitchen towels and disinfectant wipes. No stains, odors or any nastiness.
I am disappointed that the color is lighter than in the photo. Instead of making a statement it is just washed out. Most of all the texture is scratchy and unpleasant. I would never use this in an area that I would walk on with bare feet. it is going under my dining room table so it will be good enough. If I had seen this in a store I would not have purchased it.
