We had been searching for the PERFECT rug for our lanai. We spend a lot of time on it, so it needed to be durable, but we didn't want something all dark because the furniture that sits on it is dark. This rug is just PERFECT! It has a great design, and feels great under my bear feet. I was worried that I wouldn't like the pattern, but it is great. My only regret is that I waited so long to finally make the purchase. Then the shipping time was very quick. We are so happy.
