I ordered this rug for the entrance way of my apartment, which is my living room. I wanted an indoor 3'' by 5'' rug that looked cozy, but could withstand moderate foot traffic and the occasional pair of wet boots. This fits the bill. It looks smart causal. I like the olive border. To keep it clean, I should just have to run a vacuum over it. The seagrass smells a little funky for several days, than goes away, and it takes a couple of days for the rug to lay flat because it must be rolled up to be shipped. After about a week, you're all set. I've gotten compliments on it, and a friend decided to order the same rug after seeing mine and judging it to be a good value.
