I previously bought the 2.5 x 10 rug and it was stunning. That's what prompted me to buy this size rug.The 3.5 x 5.5 looks like it came from a totally different manufacturer. The star burst are not as raised as the runner and the beige portion of the rug is more of a dingy grey. The star burst is also much bigger and spreadout. The pattern matches the picture, but it's not the best execution or quality.
