I was totally surprised that the bamboo rug appeared at our doorstep days before I received the shipping notice from Overstock. Extremely fast service. It was well-packed and arrived in perfect condition. I bought it to protect a "worn" spot on our light-colored, hardwood floor in the kitchen. I had some misgivings about the size and color but it works well for the area under the table. The black edging is a nice accent the goes with a our black stove and dishwasher. We have a Scandanavian teak table and the color goes reasonably well with the rug. I chose the Burnt Bamboo color which appears darker (and shinier) on my monitor screen. For that reason alone, I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5. I don't know how well it will hold up as we've only had it a week, but so far so good. I'm happy with the purchase.
