This rug arrived with a planned life as an entry rug, for visitors to wipe their feet on. I figured that it was far less expensive than the current rug that I had at the front door so I'd make the GardenGold rug the foot wiping rug. Wrong! It's beautiful and it made me sad to think someone would muddy it up! I instead placed it in to service in my Master bathroom, which has out-dated gold faucets. The GardenGold rug makes the out-dated gold faucets look hip and cool! Who knew? I ordered a Waterhog carpet for the front door and am quite happy with both purchases from Overstock.
