This rug is beautiful and looks great in our living room next to the furniture and other accents. My (our) only complaint is that it has a slightly funky odor...not foul, but not almost as if it was sitting rolled up in a warehouse for a long LONG time. I know this is a possibility, but I thought the odor would fade much faster. We got the rug in December, and it still has a slight funk to it, despite vacuuming it 1-2 times per week. i don't know if this is normal or not but i hope it fades because the rug looks great with our decor!
