This rug is the perfect color and accent to our newly remodeled bedroom. We replaced the old blue shag carpet with dark bamboo hardwoods and got this rug to put in our dressing area as an accent. Both my husband and I use it to do our stretching on after we go for a long run. It's so soft and thick. I'm very tempted to buy a runner in the same rug to go along each side of the bed so I have something soft and warm to step out of bed on to, but I do love my new hardwoods.
