Love the style of the rug - a nice transitional look. Very crisp and modern with great color. It is a berber, which at first I was a little disappointed with. But since the rug is under my kitchen table, the berber should work out even better. Should hold up well. I was watching this rug for a while, since I thought it was a little expensive. Once there was a sale, I purchased and II am glad I did.
This is a beautiful, thick, soft rug and perfectly breaks up the monotony of my plain tile floors. The only thing that bothers me is that it sheds a lot. The texture is like berber and it's constantly shedding little fibers. I have to vacuum it at least every other day. I don't really mind that because I vacuum a lot anyway. I've had it down for about three weeks and it seems to be shedding less with time.
This is a very thick rug so it needs no pad. The design is beautiful, it layed well after a short time and did not shed much. I have it in a dining room and it's a nice alternative to a busy oriental pattern that is in the adjoining living room.
