I want to state first off that my husband is the PICKIEST fashionista you've ever met. We buy and return stuff for the house ALL the time. Once he sees things in the house he no likey LOL! BUT. I took a gamble and bought this for him for our living room. 8.6X12. It is so soft. has longer shag and shorter shag to give definition to rug. The Cream and Tan areas are shiny and it just looks perfect in our living room. He couldn't believe that I got it from overstock. It doesn't look cheap and seems very quality. For the price and the quality it is such a deal! We are getting the 3x5 for near the fireplace too! Highly recommend!
