The 8 x 10 rug was a great buy. Size was accurate, center color is more blue as reviewers said, but blue is what I wanted. The tan is brighter than the picture, the black is deep suede black. It looks nice on the light oak floors and has interesting texture. This rug seems tough, so I think it will hold up to the dog and traffic. The variations seem like they will hide dirt and dog hair well. It's definitely not soft, but good for the home office. It vacuums easy. Overall with free shipping an amazing deal.
