Perfect choice, on my part. I purchased it for the lakeside slider doors at our cottage. I needed something a little wider than the traditional runner as this entry would get a lot of use by grandchildren and dogs. The rug is sturdy, yet not rough; lays flat and I don't anticipate that the edges will roll or fray. Overstock was out of the color I wanted which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because the brown looks perfect on the wood floor.
