I purchased this rug to go next to the bed to take the cold and hardness "shock" from the stone tile floor and give an aesthetic sense of warmth to the sleeping area. I am very happy with it. The rug came in well packaged and in excellent condition. It is well made. The texture is firm and ropey, and it is what I wanted to give the effect I needed in the winter without holding excessive heat in the Florida summers. It goes very nicely with my natural finish wood dressers. I recommend using a non-slip pad underneath it, especially for hard floors. I had looked in many places for natural fiber rugs, and, if I could find what I wanted, the prices were unapproachable for me. A friend told me about overstock.com, and I joyfully purchased this rug and two larger ones without financial strain and with great satisfaction.
