I've bought several area rugs from Overstock and this is the first one that has been a total disappointment. It is cheap and looks like one would pay a whole lot less than this price - looks really, really cheap. Very thin and feels totally synthetic - which it is, but should at least aspire to imitate something better. Also the design looks really elegant online but just lame and flimsy in person. I can't believe this has received so many good reviews. Only buy this if you have really low-end furnishings and don't need something elegant or high quality. Oh, and it's costing me $**** to return it! ugh.
