I bought this rug based on other reviews. I received it in a timely manner and it was in good condition. The color was a little lighter than I expected but that did not bother me. I am returning the rug because it sheds excessively! I put it in my family room and next to my dark hardwood floors and dark wood furniture I am going crazy!! I vacuum every day to no avail. I gave it two weeks to see if shedding would subside....But it hasn't. It sticks to the bottom of our socks, my furniture etc. It is too bad because it is an attractive rug otherwise.
