I bought the emerald runner for my tile floor, high traffic kitchen & it's perfect. I use a non-slip pad with it. It's very snazzy, doesn't look fake, hides everything & spills wipe right up. I'm ordering a smaller one for another part of the kitchen. Note that the picture shows the color accurately, but it's not what I think of as "emerald" green -- the color is a bit more yellowish-green than .emerald. We love it.
