We moved into a new house last April and purchased a discount 10X10 rug online from some no name rug shop. I have hated this rug with a passion because it had tassels that weren't pictured online and was very thin and always looked dirty. FINALLY! I found this rug on Overstock.com and LOVE it. True to other comments, it's a bit lighter than pictured and has lots of lavender but it has such a variety that it could work with a variety of decor. Also true to other reviews, it does shed a lot for the first week or so, but with frequent vacuuming, it's fine now. It's plush and thick and great for the kids to play on. Also, the variety of colors and size of the rectangles hide stains really well. And you can't beat the overstock.com price and cheap shipping!!
