This rug is stunning! The surface is plush and it feels great underfoot. It seems very durable - we've had it for 18 months in the Man-Cave, where it gets a fair amount of traffic. It's still kind of shedding (throwing off little fuzzies that have to be vacuumed up), which surprises me after this amount of time. I had found this rug on another site and saved $200 buying it from Overstock. Could not be happier with my purchase!
