First of all, I ordered this rug on Sunday afternoon and it was delivered Tuesday morning! How is that possible? (I just had to pay Amazon $28 for 2 day shipping of a golf bag!) Anyway, this rug is beautiful. I needed something the same color as our blond labrador retriever for obvious reasons and this is a lovely light beige with touches of sage green, gold and burgundy. I have it over dark hardwood floors and it really pops. Macy's carries these rugs but not this big size. The 9x12 is triple the price at Macy's for what I paid for a 9'6"x13'6". Overstock is truly amazing. I did not have any issues with folds or smell but it does shed which will stop eventually. If only I could say the same for the dog.
