I was very pleased with this rug -- it doesn't feel "hard" like my other indoor/outdoor synthetic rugs. I put it in an exercise room over an interlocking rubber floor so we could make the space do double duty as a guest room. Because of the rubber flooring we don't need a rug mat, but I would suggest one if you put this rug on hardwood. Although it's not that thick, the surface is soft enough to kneel on for exercising. Even though it was a shade darker than I expected (pale tan rather than "ivory") the overall effect is light and it is very pretty. Because it was almost a foot longer than described, I wasn't able to orient it in our small room the way I had planned, but the quality is so nice that I wouldn't consider exchanging it. I would definitely recommend this rug to a friend.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I'd call this "pale khaki" rather than "ivory"
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Surprisingly soft underfoot, kind of a looped pile.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description says "size may vary" -- mine measured 7'8 x 10'11.
