I was apprehensive about ordering a rug online, but based onthe other reviews, took the plunge. I'm so glad I did. This rug is perfect in my great room and I've received many compliments on it already. It does shed at first, but we've had it three weeks now and it's noticeably less. The colors were very true to the picture. It arrived in a long roll which weighed 90 pouds, so helpis preferred. Once rolled out and put in place, it flattened out in less than 24 hours. I'm very happy with this rug and am already looking for one for my fopyer and dining room.
