I had purchased the Dakota Dark Cedar 72" Dining Table on 2/8/12 from Overstock and wanted a rug to go underneath it. I looked around at local Home Goods, TJMaxx and Marshalls for rugs and the selection/sizes were limited to certain colors and the prices were quite high (up to $400!) I chose the black color and it really is true to what the photo looks like on the web site. It is lovely and I love the detailing now that I get to see it up close. Also, our dining area is small and the rug dimensions fit perfectly in the space and the dimensions of the awaited dining table. I ordered this rug on the 13th and it arrived on the 15th via Fed-Ex. The pile isn't as thick as another Made In Italy rug I had purchased for our living room from Overstock years ago, but it will do because it will be under our dining set. But if you use the rug elsewhere, you will need to purchase a rug pad. Overall, I am happy with another purchase from Overstock.
