Overall, this a is a great rug! I waited to get one of the lowest prices it's been offered at, and it was a good buy at that, but I might not have been quite as happy with it had I paid full price. It is important to note that the actual colors are much more saturated than in the picture (for example, the blue is much more deep and rich than in the picture, which I liked), but that there is apparent color differentiation between only two of the three sections that contain shades of beige/light brown (i.e. there appear to be only two rather than three shades of beige/light brown). The pile has a nice thickness, and is soft, not rough like a lot of less expensive, synthetic rugs. It looks like it cost more than it actually did, and I love the style. With my animals, its nice to have something so stylish and good quality that will clean up so easily and inexpensively.
This rug is beautiful and looks great in the room, however, I don't think it is going to last long. When someone wears shoes on it , it starts to break up. Pieces of the carpet can be picked up (individual strands) you constantly have to vacuum it and the vacuum canister is always full.
