Originally, I bought this rug in an 8' x 8' for a dining area. I liked it so well that I also ordered the 8' x 11' area rug to brighten up the great room. I put a pad under it to prevent slipping and would suggest doing that for wood floors. The only problem that I have is getting the wrinkles out of the rug. It came rolled up and when I unrolled it, it had a couple of big kinks across the rug. It has been a few months since I put it down. The kinks are much flatter now so perhaps in time they will disappear altogether.
The rug is a good buy... very pretty, looks exactly as pictured but not great for an area that receives 8 hours of direct sunlight. We placed this rug on our deck (that receives 8 hours of direct sun) and after a year of use the rug began to literally disintegrate. Bought the same rug again and after a year of use the rug once again began to disintegrate. I only recommend this rug to be used in an area that doesn't receive more than 8 hours of direct sunlight.
