I have already recommended this site and rug to friends ! The rug lays beautifully and compliments my décor without overpowering it. The only thing I can suggest about this rug is that I am not sure about it being pet friendly as dog or cat claws might catch in the sisal weaves, tho the weaves are snug. This has not been tested yet as we haven't had 4 legged visitors. The color is true to picture, and the herringbone style pattern could not be more lovely ! I also like that this rug has a rubber and grid backing, making it easy to stay in place.
