I bought this rug for our sunroom, to put on top of quarry tile floors. It looks great. Texture takes some getting used to -- it is definitely bumpier than other rug materials, and not at all soft. On the plus side, it doesn't seem to show dirt. I chose a border in the same color as the main rug so it wouldn't show the fur from our Golden Retriever. Almost the same color as she is -- works well!
