I had found a similar rug in a high end catalog that was smaller and still $100 more. I am very happy with this rug. It looks great in our sun room. I was afraid it would be rough on our feet, but it is actually really nice. Very well made. The crease down the middle is already almost gone and I've only had 1 month or so. Great bargin compared to other stores/catalogs and looks like you paid the bigger price tag...but didn't!
