I got this rug to add some color to my new house. I already had an apple green chair and curtains. I wasn't sure if it was going to be bright enough....it is! This rug brings so much life to my living room. It's also a good thickness. Not to thin. My dogs and kids love sitting and playing on it. I get compliments all the time when people see pics on Facebook. This was well worth the money. Great color, great rug!
