This was my first purchase on overstock.com. I had been looking for nice area rugs for my hardwood floors. I couldn't find any wool rugs in this size, thickness, and quality for under $650. The rug is plush, thick, and soft to the touch. The red in this rug is a true dark red (not orangy like the picture looks). I have received many compliments and when people hear what I paid for the rug they are very surprised.
