i wasn't impressed with the quality of this rug and will be returning it to overstock. the pattern and pile looked really cheap, and the color is a lot darker than on the picture. after reading the great reviews, i was disappointed with the appearance of the rug. for this area of rug, i guess you get what you pay for. be forewarned - this rug is 30 lbs and ups will not pick it up from your door despite the $**** shipping charge for returns! i'll have to figure out a way to stick this in the car and drive it to a ups site.
