The rug itself is pretty nice -- not the highest quality rug I've purchased from Overstock but I wasn't really expecting that either. The pile is decent for the price and we are using a pad underneath. The only thing I would change is the amount of lime green color that is in the rug. When you look at the picture, it looks like there is a goldish color which is prominent but that color is actually a lime / pea green color. It's not horrible but I would have preferred a more neutral color instead - tan maybe. The rug is clearly very bold -- I wanted something that wouldn't show dirt easily but wasn't an oriental style and this fit the bill. I'll probably replace it in a year or two but it was too much work to return now. Some guests will probably love it, some will secretly hate it. That's OK though!
