I bought these rugs to go in my den/kitchen dining area. The furniture in these rooms are a dark brown. These rugs matched the overall look of the room as well as lightened it up a lot with their light tan center. I bought 2 just alike since they are placed close together. One is under the kitchen table and one is in den couch area. They are comfortable and look so. My kids were impressed and that says a lot. The den rug has padding underneath but kitchen one doesn't since it is placed under a table. But both rugs still provide enough cushion for your feet.
