I bought this rug for my daughter's room, and it is exactly what I had hoped. It is soft & comfortable to sit & read on, and stays in place on the hardwood floor without any rug tape or gripper. I was worried that the color would be too bright -- on the screen it looked like a neon green -- but it is just right: bright & cheery without being overpowering. I was very pleased that it made it through the washer/dryer without any damage -- I put it on the delicate cycle & medium heat, and it did great. So happy it is easy to clean, in addition to being fun, comfy & attractive!
