I purchased this rug for under my newly purchased dining room table and six chairs (also from overstock.com). It arrived in only 2 days! We rolled it out and it layed flat (rubber backing). There was no smell like I had read from other reviews. We had a pretty big spill the first week, but it dried with no mark or stain whatsoever (beer). Food/crumbs vacuum up nicely as well. This rug is PERFECT!!!
