I had very limited options for a 9' x 12' rug for my family. Under $*, modern, easy to keep clean (children) and not too rough like a natural woven rug. This rug fit the bill, literally. And wow! When I unrolled it, I just fell in love with it. It just what we needed for our boring living room. With a decent mat underneath, it's just like any other indoor rug you would buy. Thanks to some trendy blogger I ran across, I was willing to give an indoor/outdoor rug a chance in my living room, and Overstock's quality and cost can't be beat any where else on the net or elsewhere.
