Rug was delivered well ahead of time. For the money, it is okay because a similar one at a department store costs at least $600. But this one is clearly a second since it has 15 or more pulls /imperfections--not like what you would get in a department store model. However, since we have dogs and don't expect it to last that long anyway, it's fine for the money. For anyone who is looking to design a room around this rug, I would not recommend it.
