I love the style and look of this rug. I have it under my dining table currently, but it definitely still needs a non slip pad underneath, as it is slippery when placed alone on top of the wood floor (probably due to the woven wool style). My biggest complaint (and my husband's as well) is that it's stinky! Not a chemical smell or anything like that- closer to a wet dog smell is how I'd describe it. It's been 6 days so far, and the smell is still there. I'm really hoping it goes away soon- my next step is buying a rug deodorizer powder to see if that helps. If it weren't for the smell this would have been a five star review.
