I bought this rug to go under my formal square dining table. I absolutely love it. It is really soft feeling and has had very minimal shedding like about three strands in the past few months. It looks very modern and trendy, especially if you ruffle up the shag such that the threads all go in different directs (kind of like the effect of a Guinea pig fur rosette if you have ever had that kind of guinea Pig lol). The rug has a really cool sheen too, but with the ruffle effect, it sort of gives a mottled sheen effect which is even trendier looking. Be very careful when ordering different colors of this rug. I went through two other colors of this rug ordering then sending back before settling on the ivory one. The problem is that with the sheen in the rug, it makes the internet pictures deceiving, and you think you are ordering one color, and it arrives looking very different. For example, the sable rug looked a light champagne color in the internet picture when it arrived it was more of a gray/brown. I ordered the titanium next, which was a dark gray when it arrived not the sheeny silver that it appears on the internet. The ivory seems to be the only one that looks true to color on the internet picture. I have vacuumed the rug, and it vacuums easily providing you turn the spinning brush off on your cleaner and just use the suction as you would on any toledo or wooden floor. The rug fibers part quite easily for suction, and then fall back in place straight afterwards without any adverse effect. I would not recommend this rug for high traffic areas, due to the design of the rug, when walked on bare foot with pressure, you can feel the fiber attachment nodules underneath. That's not to say that it isn't comfortable .. it is but it isn't one of those fluffy sumptuous rugs that your feet sink into when walking across it. Hence it is perfect for under my formal dining area. If you like trendy and modern and have a more decorative area for this rug - then it is perfect for you.
While this is a lovely rug to look at, it is slippery underfoot. From my computer monitor, it looked as if it was mottled, ivory and beige. It is actually one solid color that is more cream and went well with my decor and so I did not have to return it. It is a glamorous-looking rug,.
Very very soft and the off-white color was nice too. I like the rug I just wish I bought it in round or oval. It looks a little strange in square.

I really like this rug. Its great for the money and looks very plush. A lot of other reviews said you need a rug pad, but mine seems fine without it. I have it in my couch area with my coffee table holding it in place and it doesn't slip at all. I really like it. Looks like a Polar Bear rug. :)

I purchased this rug for the first time 18 months ago, and have been so pleased with it that I bought a second. The carpet itself is extremely soft, and feels great underfoot -- adding a carpet pad makes it even better. The best part is that it is a breeze to clean.
