This rug is so good and beautiful that we bought 3 of them for ourselves- all different sizes. They are of very fine quality and such a bargain. We really like the rugs on Overstock.com. This particular rug is very muted in color, but it works well with our carpet which is close to the same value as the rugs. This makes for an elegant appearance and doesn't cut the room up visually. Also, the rugs lay flat on the carpet and are thick and luxurious.
