This rug arrived less than a week of ordering. We've not yet placed it on the floor as we are still waiting for our hardwood floor to be installed; however, we did unroll it to take a look, and it is everything we'd hoped for. The colors are gorgeous, and as someone else had posted they are slightly more subtle than the online picture (which is a good thing). The blue in the center is more like a soft greyish blue, and we wanted that. It is a thick, well-made rug, with a canvas backing, and very nicely bound on the edges. My mom is an interior designer and couldn't believe we got such a well-made, beautiful rug for this price. Once we start living with the rug on the floor, I'll update my review, but I'm sure it'll remain 5 stars.
