The rug was perfect to make an understatement in our formal dinning room but it still has enough detailed pattern in it to give an air of elegance. The texture is great for having multiple animals since it isn't the typical fuzzy wool fabric. Instead it had flat, tightly woven fibers that don't allow pet fur to easily get tangled in it. Also, we decided to only place the rug directly under our elaborately carved and inlaid wood table and chairs with about 4" of the outter border visible. So, if you're looking for a beautiful, easy to care for rug with style and simplicity this is the rug for you.
I purchased this rug for a high traffic area, thats why I went with indoor/outdoor. The quality is good, it will take some time to get the ripples out from packing. My only dissapointment was that in the photo it appears more of a gold. It is not, it more a very dark beige, almost brown.
