I bought this rug after reading the many positive reviews on all the "Cozy Solid Ivory" rugs on Overstock up through this size (note: I noticed the item numbers are related for all the rugs up to the 8.5'x12' rugs, but the poorly-reviewed 9.5'x13' rug is a very different item number, which may explain the difference - I ordered the 8.5x12 to be on the safe side and am glad I did). Other positive reviews are spot-on. The rug is so, so plush and soft without being too shaggy (fibers are about 1.25" long) and you can't feel the backing through the rug like so many cheaper shag rugs. The rug is made up of two thicknesses of same-colored warm ivory fiber, which adds some additional texture (the skinnier fibers are also twisted tighter which adds to this effect), and I hope will hide dirt. The rug smells like polypropylene rugs do the first day or two, but the smell is dissipating quickly. Having a dog and kids, I was worried this rug wouldn't be able to be vacuumed, but my Dyson handles it very well (no shedding!), and even my Roomba seems to do okay, though it occasionally hiccups when trying to climb up onto the rug. It adds a nice design element to my old home and sets off my darker leather furniture, while also making the living room look so much more inviting, bright, and comfortable. Couldn't be happier.
