The rug is great under our dining table. The green is lighter than expected, more of a kiwi green, but is fine. It seems durable for high traffic areas. Very simple and nice. The only thing is the ODOR! Phew! The smell of stinky feet throughout the house is wicked. Burn some candles and use some Febreeze and hopefully in time the odor will pass! I would recommend this product to a friend, but they would have to be alerted to the odor first. As far as the rug goes, it's great and just want I needed.
