This rug appears to be well made, but the latex backing crumbles off a little and has a strong odor for a few days. The rug lays flat after the first day. There are no imprints left in the rug from the table or chairs. The rug is not soft but not uncomfortable to walk on. My only disappointment is the color of the sisal is not as pictured on the monitor. It is a very ruddy brown color and so is the trim. Otherwise, great rug for the price.
