I ordered this rug for my dining room and am very happy with it. The color is a true ivory (no yellow cast) and the fibers are long and plush and surprisingly soft. I love walking on it with my bare feet. Mine has not done much shedding like some of the other reviewers mentioned, but it doesn't get walked on too much. It gives a contemporary retro twist to my old world dining table and I really like that. Very happy, Overstock!
