Exactly what I expected based upon the reivews I read before purchasing. Very nice, good quality, fast shipping, great price. The edge of the rug is still a little curled and it's been a couple of weeks but it doesn't bother me because that edge is against my wall anyway. It's not a big or bothersome curl and it'd probably flatten out if I put some weight on it. As a side note, before you use spot cleaner on this rug - DO A SPOT TEST! I tried to remove a stain with spot remover and it bleached the sisal. (the spot cleaner didn't say it contained bleach either.) Overall I'm very satisfied with this purchase though.
