Carpet arrived in 2 days- unfortunately pad took 3 more. What could be better than having a heavy and bulky item delivered to your home (nice UPS guy brought in for me) for $2.95 ?! I am using it in my kitchen- added attraction that the pattern helps hide the need for vacuuming. The carpet is well made and comfortable on bare feet. There is some fuzzy shedding but not an issue. The colors are more vibrant than pictured- bright brick, medium blue denim-ish and rich cream.
