The colors of this rug were much darker than they appear on-line. The background is more tan/beige than cream/beige. The texture is chunkier than it appeared as well. The rug isn't terribly soft to the touch, but is thick and cushy underfoot. My young dog snagged a thread as soon as I laid it down so I'm not sure it will hold up in my household over the long term. But the fact that I can take it out and hose it off should make it a more pet friendly product. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It seems to be a reasonable value for the money but it's no steal.
I bought this rug for a basement family room on a tile floor. It's about half an inch thick, so you can't feel the cold tile. The turquoise and green are a little more vibrant than pictured, and based on the photo I thought the medallions would be bigger. On an 8x10, there are actually almost three full medallions across, not two as pictured. It's an excellent quality, thick loop rug that looks fantastic! I highly recommend it.
