I bought this area rug to put down over bland light brown carpet. I purchased the burgundy colored rug. I got it in 5 days and it is absolutely gorgeous. The quality is top shelf, it is very soft and the colors are vibrant. It really brightens the room. People that have seen it think that it would have cost much more than what I payed for it. I love it! If you're on the fence and thinking about buying one... you can't go wrong. It is one of the best values for the money I have spent in a long while.
