I bought the 8x10 sisal rug in beige to go in my dining room over hardwood floors. It's fabulous! The beige border is pretty much the same color as the rug itself which was fine with me. It's soft enough that my 2.5 yr old sits and plays on it and I can walk barefoot across it with nothing 'sticking' me! Overstock shipped it so quickly and it arrived in good packaging. There was no damage and once unrolled, it flattened completely out overnight. I'm thrilled with this purchase and once we rip out carpet in our master bedroom, I plan to buy another one to put over wood floors. I highly recommend this rug!
