We wanted a neutral but non-boring rug for a sunroom addition. This is not a super high quality rug but for the price we didn't expect that, and with a good quality pad it more than fits our purpose. We also didn't want wool. We have big windows and this lends to the "outdoors inside" feeling of the sunroom. Goes great with a wide variety of colors. As to the quality -- we noticed a seam and pulled & trimmed a cord, and thought about returning it, but it's really not noticeable and wasn't worth the bother. Besides we really like the coloration and get lots of compliments on it, so it stays!
