Have been looking for an affordable and good looking rug for my dining room for almost 5 years. Just couldn't find the right look under 1,000. Narrowed it down to this and a couple of others and couldn't beat the price. The rug came quickly and was well packaged. Have let it lie for 24 hours to get all the lumps out, and it looks great in the space. Initially a lot of new rug smell, but that is to be expected - just open the window for a while if sensitive Gives old world charm without the stodginess, and the colors are just lovely. The online pic is a bit darker overall than the real thing, but the other reviews prepared me for that, and I like it just fine! Have bought rugs before from Overstock and have always been satisfied with the results.
