I got this for a small area near my bed. It was to replace another rug that I had for several years and was showing wear. I was amazed at the thickness of the pile, very plush and comfortable to even lay on. It gives my bedroom an ambiance of of richness and the colors are pretty much as depicted. It appears to be high quality and has not even shed over the first several weeks like other rugs I've have of this type. a great bargain.
