When decorating our nursery, we ordered SEVERAL rugs from Overstock. Some we loved, but had to return because of a terrible off-gas odor. Some just didnt work. This rug completely fit the bill. We ordered the 8x10 white and it is perfect. It is soft and fluffy and really makes the room feel cozy. And, it doesn't stink! It hasn't shed either-even with the cat attempting to claw it. It is a definite keeper!
