From, the moment I unrolled this, I loved it. It's exactly as pictured. It's thick, seems well made and the colors go with most anything you put on it. I purchased this for our family room, and against the darker hardwood floors, it looks stunning. Our furniture is mostly charcoal in color and looks fantastic with this rug. Both my husband and I are incredibly please with the purchase and I would absolutely recommend it to friends looking for a large area rug.
