I was unsure ordering a rug this large and expensive without seeing it in person, however, I need not have worried--it is exactly what I wanted. It was delivered by UPS on a hand truck (129 lbs) inside our home. It was folded, not rolled, but when we layed it out it immediately was flat without wrinkles. It is thick, about 5/8" -3/4" and the color is true to the picture. It is very muted:light sage green with gold, beige and some cranberry. No need for a rug pad on our hardwood floor. It is very expensive looking and I definitely can recommend the product. From date of order to delivery was 7 days-very quick!
