This rug looks exactly like it does online! The colors are slightly less vivid, which I was expecting, but otherwise, it's exactly as described. I bought it to put in front of the couch in the living room, and it'll be great there, bringing some great colors and a nice pattern into the room. The pile was shorter cut, but soft, so it feel great on the feet, and shouldn't be difficult to vacuum. Overall, it's exactly what I was looking for, and at such a great price too!
