I got this rug for my family room--it's soft and thick and my kids love lying on it. We had a thinner rug here before, but this one makes the room feel so much warmer. Make sure you know that the medallions are carved into the carpet design, so the pile height is not even the whole way across the rug. My only reservation when I ordered it was that it wouldn't be forgiving of the toddler stains that are bound to show up on it as it wears. I was pleasantly surprised because 1) it is a browner beige (rather than super pale) and 2) there's just enough depth to the color that subtle things won't show up immediately like they did with my last rug. I love this rug and would definitely buy it again.
