I actually bought this 2 years ago. We have used it EVERYDAY since. I have 4 children, dogs, and adults that are on it daily. It has held up incredibly well. I am beyond impressed. I vacuum daily and it looks brand new afterwords. The color scheme is very neutral but attractive as well. I have received many compliments on my rug and have been asked where I got it from and price (if I would tell) and I always do. It was a GREAT price for a very central piece to my living room. I have used in on hardwood floors with no padding and it is still soft enough to lay on and on top of carpet (to protect the white carpet from my family abusing it) and it worked great in that situation too! Can't say enough good things. Would definitely recommend to a friend (and have) and would buy again if something were to happen to the one I have!
