I purchased this rug for our living room and although it looked nice aesthetically, it smelled up our home for 7 days after my husband finally got fed up and threw it away! It was also full of dirt which I swept up 3 pans full after we threw it away. I would most definitely NOT recommend this rug to anyone who does not want a super smelly musky dirty home. Terrible purchase. Very disappointing...and I am not very picky.
