After months of searching, we decided on this rug for our living room. Yes, the rug is a statement and the colors are beautiful. However, the thing sheds like you would not believe and the small ribbons that make up the pattern are dislodging left and right. We have only had it down for 3 days and I just called about a return. A rug that sheds, losing key material, and is fraying already is of no use in our living room.
