This rug is a testament to the fact that you often get what you pay for. The pictures of this rug look great. I've seen it in Ballards and that's when I fell in love with it. However, in person and up close, it's terrible. The leopard spots actually have these black flecks in them that you don't really see in the photos. The black flecks make it look like a cheap commercial grade carpet and show the poor and cheap weave of the rug. I knew the rug was going to be thin and I've seen nice rugs that are thin; however, this is just a thin cheap low-end rug. It amazes me how lovely this rug can look in a picture online because it was a total disappointment in person. If you're looking for an inexpensive cheaply made animal print rug this a good deal for you. I'm afraid I will be sending this back.
This rug appeared to be of average quality and was relatively thin. I had to return it because the colors were much darker tan and brown than they appeared in the picture.

This rug is beautiful; soft without being too thick; gives a touch of glamour and glitz without being something you're afraid to walk on. We've used two of these runners in our new Master Dream Closet and it gives such an elegant feel to the space. I've seen this same rug for twice the price on another site. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.
I LOVE this rug! I can see where some people would think it is thin if they are looking for a plush rug. This one is not that. It's thin weave is not a quality issue. The leopard spots are more plush and the spaces between are a natural fiber weave. It's a beautiful contrast of textures. The colors are much darker than the picture. Some of the leopard spots are dark brown. Still very beautiful and great for my hallway.
Seriously, this leopard rug is absolutely gorgeous. I just opened it and I want more....

I had to send this back due to the fact that I needed another size, but I loved the rug! It is a Safavieh brand. I have the Paradise rug in this series. The patterns are pleasing and the colors are neutral, but the edges seem to fray a bit when vacuumed. These rugs are not for high traffic areas. They are somewhat thin, but overall I am pleased. They are the exact same rugs offered from Ballard Designs at a much better price. Overstock delivers again!
