I like this rug. It definitely has an interesting look -- I would describe it as a rag-rug style that happens to be made with leather. It did have the leather smell when it arrived, and still does 2 weeks later. But I like it -- smells like a leather jacket. I have mine in the family room which is a good, casual place for it. The rug sits on tile and I have noticed that it moves if the dog is playing but it's not a rug that slips all over the place. I plan to put a skid-free type pad under it, I'd like to put an actual carpet pad under it for cushion but because of the rag-style I'm not sure it would look right. Don't expect it to be smooth underfoot -- it is leather after all, and couple that with the rag-rug style, you're getting something nubby / textured underfoot. Not rough -- just textured. And I'm fine with that because it looks so good. Everyone who has seen it walks into the room and immediately says that it's great or cool or wow. A large rug that looks cool, adds texture, gets lots of complements at an amazing price: Great buy.
