This rug is a perfect runner between two doors in a high traffic area. Had a party with 30 people and 5 dogs with their shoes on during winter time and the rug is great. Definitely not the softest rug but durable. I just bought a larger version for our living room area where the couch is (no kids so I'm not concerned about it being super soft.)
Ordered 3 runners for hardwood floor kitchen high traffic areas. The sisal weave is well done with the borders securely stitched. Soft on the bare or sock footed folk! The latex back works perfectly in staying in place so no need for a rug pad. Ordered my previous runners from O and they held up for almost 6 years in three different homes. Extremely satisfied .... again!

I purchased the 6x9 rug and immediately purchased the 2.6x12 runner for my entry. Note that the rug is slightly lighter than it appears on website but with dark floors it looks striking. It took me a little while to get use to that. It is more of a dressy look than the standard natural fiber rugs. The fibers are soft to the feet and do not stray like most natural fiber rugs. I was constantly cleaning my floors with the other fiber rug that I had before I received this one. I also does not have an odor in my estimation. It vacuums well and does not pull at fibers like it would with other natural fiber rugs. The rug also lays well on the floor with the slight rubber coating on the back of the rug. This is a feature that I especially like as the rug does not move like natural fiber rugs. A padding is not necessary. I had a runner pad that I tried it on but it does better without the pad. I got both rugs on sale and truely love them. Overstock shipping was quick too. I would definately recommend this rug to anyone who wants the same color and feel that this rug offers.
