I was very pleased with the rug. The color and workmanship are fantastic, exactly what I wanted. I had looked at various stores for a rug to go in my family room, with no luck, but this rug drew my attention when I saw it and I have not been disappointed. Some of the reviews mentioned shedding but I have had the rug for 2 weeks now and am not experiencing any problems. I would definately recomend this rug to anyone looking for a product to brighten a room, that has the look and feel of something very expensive without spending alot of money.
