I never write reviews but ALWAYS read them prior to purchasing products online. This rug fits perfectly in the living room of our new house. The colors are great, the rug is plush under our feet and so far stands up well to our young kids and dog. I LOVE the fact that I don't see dog hair on the rug like I did on our old one. My husband has left decorating our new house up to me because he doesn't have much of an opinion and even he thinks this was a fabulous purchase.
