You get a lot of rug for the price! I had been eyeing a rug at a furniture store priced at 4k but couldnt stomach paying that much. I took a chance on ordering this rug online after reading the reviews. Was really nervous about the quality and color but am very happy with this purchase. The rug is thick and soft. So far no shedding issues like other pple mentioned (but its only been down for a week). The color is a bit different in person - on my monitor it looked gold and tan but in reality the major colors are a soft blueish gray with some gold and tan and of course pops of red. It arrived quickly and very well-wrapped.
