I'm using this rug in a "girlie" bedroom on a wood floor and it works very well. While a mat is recommended, I'm not using one and I think this is ok. The pile is actually 1-inch high, but the off-white felted wool "accents" are probably close to 2 inches high and much thicker. This is no ordinary rug! The overall effect with the four off-white felted strands woven at regular intervals in the robin's egg blue background is akin to polka dots--very cute. With its high pile, this rug must be carefully vacuumed on low setting or "brushless" setting of your vacuum. I would NOT use it in a high traffic area as you would not want the pile to become matted. It's very tactile (feels great on bare feet), and most of all FUN.
