The palm trees are not nearly as crisp looking as shown online - they look more like poor decals. The field color of the bamboo is also much more yellow than pictured. When the package arrived (UPS left it on my front porch while at work) the plastic had a large hole in it. Then, when I unrolled it, there's a large area near one corner that has what looks like spattered dirt all over it. I tried to clean it off with several different products, but it won't budge - now I'm thinking it must be spattered paint. Overall, I'm disappointed with the way it looks, but for the price, I'll just live with it until I find something I like better. I do like the bamboo style rugs - I have another one (plain) in my dining room. They are much easier to keep clean that the cut pile type rugs - especially if you have pets. I have long hair cats, and trying to vacuum cat hair out of the old cut pile rug was a losing battle! I purchase from Overstock all the time and I think this is the first item I've ever received that I was really disappointed with.
