We love this rug! We bought the size down from this one and it was too small, so we went up to the bigger one and absolutely LOVE it!! It was just as described, and looks identical to the picture. We have it in our kitchen and it looks great! We have to vacuum it every other day, but that's only b/c we have a dog with light hair so it shows easily. I would definitely recommend this rug, it's beautiful and is great quality...for a great price!!
