Was very hesitant about purchasing this rug after reading some negative reviews about it on Overstock. But after looking at ...oh, say 5 or 6 hundred other rugs decided that the colors were too perfect not to take a chance. My expectations on the quality weren't very high, but I decided to give it a try. What a plesant surprise! The rug is absolutely amasing! The colors are even more viabrant than what you see on the photograph. The quality is very nice, but the rug is not very thick, so if you want something a little bit on a thicker side - try it with pading. The only thing I would change about it is the way it was shipped! I think maybe some sort of a roll in the center or some insert would have prevented unwanted creases at the inner edge of the rug, but it's not anything a steamer couldn't fix!
