Delivery was faster than I expected. Delivery was made during a rain storm. The rug was wrapped in plastic and the black magic marker used to mark the plastic ran all over the back of the rug. This is a concern, since I don't want black magic marker on my wood floors. The rug is over 150lbs., and was left on the first floor hall floor by the delivery guy. Problem is that it needed to be placed on the 2nd floor. Thanks to a very strong neighbor, the rug is now in my LR where is belongs. However...the rug that shows up on this site has a blue/green background, and the rug itself has a dark tan background. I will be unrolling the rug tomorrow, and will see if it works for my room. The backing seems somewhat soft, and will probably need a rug pad.
