This is a really nice looking runner rug, but it is not well made so the pile has not held up well. It has pulls throughout the body of the rug, so it did not wear well at all. It was not expensive so I am not totally bummed out that it did not hold up to the little bit of wear it got (I bought 2 for each side of the bed in the master bedroom) but I do question the quality control of the O purchasers.
I recently moved, and needed several rugs for my new space. I threw this one in on a whim. It caught my attention, but I thought I was crazy for buying it. It turns out that this is my favorite rug of the bunch! The pattern and the contrast are gorgeous and interesting, and look classy and striking in a spot where I wasn't even planning to put it, with my grayish-taupy slightly lavende-rish wall color (Martha Stewart Living "Cavern" MSL242 from Home Depot). I'm ordering another one so that it fits just right.
