I read the other reviews on all of the rugs of this style from thie manufacturer so I knew what I was going into. The rug is thin, which is perfect because THICK rugs are a real pain in the behind when laid over carpet instead of hardwood or tile. The material isn't gloriously soft, which is to be expected from olafin. The pattern/design actually looks nice. It isn't as pixilated as most reviews commented that it was. If you have your nose DIRECTLY on the carpet, yes, it APPEARS pixilated, but me and my guests typically don't snort stuff off of the floor so it doesn't have that appearance. It is a very SUBTLE design with purples, teal, and turquoise. It isn't attention getting, which is exactly what I wanted, but it isn't something you can completely overlook. The size is perfect to mark off a seating area in a larger space, and it vacums nicely. The cons, since it's black based, hair, lint, etc, shows up on it. If you have pets, I'd stay away from this rug because you'll see EVERY LITTLE HAIR. The edging of the rug is a little disappointing, for the price it should have been tighter and more uniformed, but I can't complain too much because it serves its purpose and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. If you are looking for a unique area rug that will tie in a Gothic Victorian feel without being blasé or antediluvian, this is the perfect rug.
