I like the rug style and design. It looks just like I thought it would, except for the color. I had a choice of aqua or green. I chose aqua to go with other design details in the room. The reality was the aqua color is very green with just a touch of blue. Not aqua at all, not the color I saw on my screen, and much darker than I wanted as well. So lesson learned, when the color really matters, do not shop online.
I bought this rug in two colors, green and teal. The colors are vibrant and the rugs do not smell. However, they are not soft. It feels as if the design is painted on so the rug has a rough feel. Also, no padding. That said, we love it anyway because it seems impervious to our three cats scratching and hair.
