We spent a significant amount of time researching rugs from various retailers. In fact, we purchased a rug from Pottery Barn and ended up canceling once we came across this one. The colors of the rug go perfectly with our smokey blue couch and we were pleased that the tones were lighter than the image online. The only compliant is that the rug sheds. (We were prepared for this based on other reviews.) We hope after vaccuming it many times that the shedding will subside. All in all, we are very satisfied and for the delivery timing and the price, you can't beat it!
