This rug is great. So much better for the money than same size retail rugs we were considering in the same price range. This rug feels great under the feet, and adds great texture to the room. Using a rug pad with this, and we get no slippage on the tile, and a nice cushy feel. My only complaint is that the color is much more reddish-brown than we were expecting, but for the price it's not much of a complaint. Guests always love it and comment on it!
