I bought this rug for my family room. We recently remodeled and replaced the carpet with hardwood. After much online deliberating (there were so many I liked!) I chose this rug because of its light background and multiple colors. The rug arrived in about a week and we are thrilled with it! Even my husband and 18 year old son think it looks great. The colors are true to the picture, the pile is nice and thick and the pattern is beautiful. It even laid flat immediately (despite being rolled up during shipping). It's the perfect finishing touch to our new space.
