I loved this rug, and the design was beautiful and bold (without being obnoxious). It instantly brightened the room from our previous traditional, dark-colored rug. The down side is that it is not soft, and there is no pile/plush. It felt more like an indoor/outdoor rug. Since this was going to be the main rug in our living room, it just wasn't going to work. We tried it for 2 days, and I noticed our kids weren't sitting on the rug to play, which they typically do. And none of us wanted to lay on the floor during a movie, which we typically do. It just wasn't "livable" for our needs. So I sadly returned it (and Overstock was awesome to work with on my first site return). But, If you don't spend a lot of time on your floor, and you don't need a soft place to sit or play, then it's beautiful.
