I like this rug. It is casual but looks good against the hardwood floors in my dining room. I got the light green boarder and Scothguarded it right away. Otherwise it would have gotten grimy in just a few days. I gave only an average rating to "ease of assembly" because it arrives rolled with the top side out, so you can't just unroll it where you want it--you have to flip it over! That was quite a job for me because my husband was out of the country at the time! The non skid backing makes it lie flat and not slip--which was great after I finally got it into position. Overall a nice rug at a good price.
