We purchased this rug to go outside under our patio set and we truly could not be happier with it. It looks great, and it is a high quality rug which will last us for years. We have already gotten many compliments on this beautiful rug. If I had to give one con about the rug, it does look slightly different in person than it does in the picture. You can actually see the beige material under the black, which makes the black not quite as "black" as we had thought it would be. Otherwise, we love this rug.
