I absolutely love this rug. I spent $900 on a jute rug 5 years ago only to have my wonderful dog Wellington ruin it. This rug looks better and more expensive than the $900 rug. If I had more than one house, I would buy this rug for every one. If you are undecided, you can take the risk to buy this rug online! Even better is...initially....the rug never showed up...all I had to do is call customer service and they had the replacement out to me in 3 days. Customer service is great!
