The rug is very good quality. Thick, soft and well-made. It's amazing to get such a nice rug for this low a price. Unlike what other reviewers said, I don't notice any smell. I just wish the rug was true to the colors shown online. Online (and in the photo that came packaged with the rug when it arrived) it looks like a very bright red/orange color. In reality the colors are much less intense. The red has a lot more brown in it. The creams are browner and the greens and blues are more muted too. Too bad because I absolutely loved the rug in the photo. I am still keeping it and it looks pretty good in my living room. But I'm shopping for an eventual replacement.
