I ordered this rug based on the picture (pretty!) and the reviews.We recieved this rug very quickly (under a week), so Kudos to the distribution center. Carried it inside--oof, it's heavy--like a bunch of mobsters. We unrolled it onto our bare wood floors, and I was surprised because the light part of the flowers is actually white!At first I didn't like it (though my husband did), but now it's either grown on me, or the shedding process has blended the white out a bit more.This rug is obviously a good, high quality rug, but at a price that I don't have to worry about regular kid wear and tear (I have 3 under 5 years). The colors go really well with our living room furniture, but with enough other colors that I like so I don't feel trapped into any one color scheme, should I so choose.Thanks Overstock.com!PS: The colors almost exactly match my copy of Seurat's La Grande Jatte!
