The Caroline Herati rug has been a beautiful addition to our home. I mistakenly ordered the wrong color (Burgundy instead of Ivory) and am thankful for my mistake. The colors are vivid and true, and the value of this large area rug for the price is exceptional. I am next looking forward to purchasing the carpet pad to increase the softness and thickness. However, even without a pad, this rug is wonderful to walk on with bare feet. Was so pleased, I purchased 2 Caroline Herati runners in the complimentary ivory color. Enjoy your new rug, it will not disappoint. Hats off to Overstock.com - the delivery was quicker than I expected!
