I just received this rug 2 days ago. As soon as I opened the wrappings and caught a glimpse of the rug, I could see it's very high quality. It is a well-made, beautiful, and thick rug and for the price, the value is simply phenominal. Once I saw the back of the rug with the makers tag (a well known, quality manufacturer), I immediately went online to check the rug out, and found that the 3x5 size sells for $300 at a DISCOUNT area rug site, and much higher at other sites, like a large, well-known department store. One note though, it is not even close to the picture colorwise. This rug is a pastel, mint green. The gold and ivory accent colors are close to the picture, however. I did notice that on the other sites that carry this rug, the green color was very off as well. I highly recommend this rug if the color works for you. For anyone with a Roomba, mine does manage to make it onto the rug to vacuum, but just barely!
