I've been searching high & low for a nice, yet durable, rug to put in our entryway. I've always loved the look of jute rugs, and know them to be capable of withstanding frequent use by wet/dirty shoes. The problem is that all of the jute rugs I seem to gravitate towards are pretty pricey...but not this one!! I have yet to be disappointed in this rug choice. The color is a great olive, not too dark but not too light/lime-colored either. The size is perfect as well. I agree with what others have said about getting the rug to lay flat. I placed some of our kitchen chairs along the end of the rug that was wound up the tightest. The other end seemed to flatten out on its own after just a few days. Do be careful not to trip on it (or allow guests or children to trip on it) in the meantime. :) All in all, this was a fabulous purchase. For the look and the durability of it, I don't think you'll find a better product...and you certainly won't beat the price!
