This is a very nice rug & definitely more expensive-looking than the price denotes. The only reason I gave it a 4 as an overall rating is because the jury is still out as to whether it will remain in my foyer. I have wood floors, so I purchased it for the foyer as a place for people entering my home to be able to remove their shoes (no shoes allowed in the house). I really like it in the foyer, because although it doesn't match my wood, it is durable, and can easily be kept clean and it is not thick, so my door does not get caught on it when it opens. My mother on the other hand doesn't like it in the foyer, she says it belongs out on my patio. I will wait for my boyfriend to get back to town for the final opinion. But I would definitely reccommend it based on the overall appearance (very true to the picture) and overall value for the $$.
