This rug is the only animal print in my traditional home and it looks fantastic. It is more contemporary with a bigger print rather than all the small intricate lines some rugs with animal prints have. I have it in a room with beige leather couches. I've had it for two weeks and it is still shedding. Based on the other reviews I am expecting this for another two weeks to come; then i am going to scotch guard it. Absolutely love it and it shipped quickly.
