This rug was delivered in great condition and came very quickly. We kept the rug, so we are generally satisfied with it, but expected the colors to be a little more vibrant. The rug is more of a dull brown, and the slate blue against the brown makes a very subtle contrast. But, for the excellent price for a rug this size, we're using it in the family room. It's great for that spot - it will get a lot of wear from a small child and a dog. The pattern is quite nice and a good intermediate scale for this size rug.
