If this is the type that you are looking for, you will love this rug. Cant beat the price and quality and was shipped real fast too, got it within 2-3 days. I used it for the dining room and the room now looks clean, simple and chic. I like it because I was looking for a simple rug like this to match my dining room style. The jute feels great, not rough at all as I thought it would be. The smell was there when I first unwrapped it but I didn't find it an issue at all, and it went away fast, barely smelled anything the next day and after few days its completely gone. I have been researching online for a while for a rug and realized this is the best deal and convenience I can find. I am satisfied.
