I love the looks of this rug - it is exactly as it appears on the website. However, it does not vacuum well, and the hooks are already coming loose after only a month. If the hooks continue to come loose at the rate they are now, I won't have a rug in a year. The rug was a great price, but I am going to have to replace it a lot sooner than I had planned on. In regards to the vacuuming problem, dog hair just seems to be pushed around rather than being sucked into the vacuum, and the vacuum has been thoroughly cleaned and tested on other rugs so I know the vacuum isn't the problem. This rug would probably work well in an extremely low traffic area, but I would not recommend it for anyone that plans to walk on it. As stated before, I love the looks of it, but am kicking myself for buying it on looks alone.
