I received this rug today and I love, love. love it!!! We have an open concept contemporary ranch home with a living room that has two seating areas. We have an oriental area rug in one seating area that I wanted to match in the other seating area but was unable to find it because it's no longer being made and all stock has been depleted . I decided to purchase this rug because it has similar colors ---not to mention is way less expensive than the one I wanted originally. Even though this rug is an oriental design it seems to be much more contemporary and much less fussy than a traditional oriental although it works very well with the very traditional one we already had. The quality of this rug is exceptional.
