Beware of the excessive shedding of this rug. Seriously, I've been vaccuuming it every three days for the last three weeks and it still sheds. It fills up my Dyson every time. I find shed-balls all over the apartment -- even in rooms that are not near the rug! I even wake up with little fibers of rug shed in my mouth --- its getting everywhere! But, alas, I love the way it looks, so will keep it for now. I got it for less than $*** using a coupon, so I can't really complain. One more thing --- what I thought was brown in the rug is actually an olive green. But, it still worked with our room, so it wasn't a big issue. Overall, this rug looks great, just is a real pain in the butt to care for.
