Overstock was great about returning it but.... Rug arrived quickly. We didn't get to opening it till next day or two. Within five minutes of my kid playing on it, the "starbursts" started to come out. The bursts are strange, not a part of the rug but barely & poorly attatched. They stick up, looking like bizzare pom-poms. In the picture it looks great. Up close, not!! Also the rug itself is not thick and the blue is darker than pictured, kind of plain.
I think this area rug is beautiful and compliments my room. The only disadvantage is the material that makes the white design comes out a little to easily. But then again I had small puppies playing on it which might have something to do with it.
