I got this rug more for the hard to find 6x9 size, which used to be a standard size, but in today's market seems now to be 5X8 as the standard. It came today and the color and texture are good, but not great. Then again, I wasn't expecting great for the price, and it will serve its purpose well. Homegoods had a similar rug in the 5X8 size more reasonably priced for like quality, but like I said, its the size that drove my purchase and is needed for the bedroom so I am keeping. I would definitely order a better quality rug if using in the living area.
