Looking for a "rustic" large rug to go in log house without the normal bear,moose, etc. theme. The colors in rug are very complimentary with light leather furniture and chocolate couch and overall rustic look. Was worried for the price would be flimsy,scratchy rug but is exact opposite. Very soft and I do not feel the need for a carpet pad. Since I always base my purchases on reviews, I feel I needed to give my review for others looking for a great rug. Overstock is always my first "go to" site to find quality, low price items.
