This rug is a good value, it's a really, really big rug for a good price. I love the look of the rug. I wouldn't call it soft or necessarily comfortable to walk on but it's really thick. It had a funny odor for about a week after I took it out of the package. The worst thing about this rug is the amount of sand that it leaves on the floor. I was shocked when I lifted up the rug!!!! So much sand! I am afraid of what it's going to do to my hardwood floors. Unfortunately now there is furniture down on the rug and I can't keep picking it up and sweeping. Not happy at all about the sand.
