I am so happy that I bought this rug - it's completely different from my normal traditional style, but it looks amazing in my family room and really pulls together my traditional wool sofa with my more contemporary chairs. I love that it's more abstract than the normal animal rugs too. It's nice and soft and I haven't had a bad problem with shedding that one reviewer mentioned - certainly nothing like my hand-knotted wool rug that was in the room previously and shed so much that I finally gave it away. This one has worn well and looks as great now as the day I put it down. One other thing - I ordered this and when it arrived, there was a hole in the packaging and the rug. I called customer service and they could not have been better - they shipped a replacement rug that arrived only 3 days after I called and they handled the UPS pickup of the old rug - all without any extra charge. This is my first Overstock purchase and I am a VERY happy customer!
