This rug is very nice. Before I started shopping, I was prepared to spend around $5000 on a nice wool rug. I'm really glad that we found this one on Overstock.com. The colors are pretty true, and it is comfortable to sit and walk on. We ended up ordering a rug pad (also from overstock) as well, and it really makes the rug a lot more comfortable to stand and sit on. Like a couple of other reviewers said, it sheds a bit, but it is nothing that the vacuum can't handle. We love our new rug, and would order another from this website in a second (and probably will!).
