After shopping at rug stores, outlets, and consignment shops, we found the best deal at Overstock. We liked the price, size, colors, and low shipping costs for this rug. It arrived within 4 days (we live in NC) in perfect condition. I am female in my 30's and I was able to bring it in the house, open the packaging, unroll it, and place it in position by myself. The colors and detail were beautiful and in keeping with the online photo. 2 suprises: 1 good, 1 bad. Good: It is probably the softest rug I've ever felt, which is nice for me and our toddlers. Bad: It is thinner than high quality wool Oriental rugs that we have (passed down from inlaws). This does not bother me- it is certainly durable enough for everyday use in our living area (had it for 3 weeks and it has withstood 2 young children, house guests, our cat, and vacuuming without any sign of wear). But some people who care a lot about a rug feeling very thick, substantial and rough should go for a more expensive wool one. I would definitely order this again.
