The colors are wonderful and the texture is perfect for us. It is thick and sturdy so if you are looking for a big rug, this is a good choice. There is only one disadvantage, If you need to slide furniture on the rug, like a footstool, furniture will not slide on this. So, you have to pick it up and move it. If your furniture is fixed,, no problem. Two dogs have spent about two weeks with the rug and there are no snags or pulls.
