I purchased this rug for a Guest Bedroom and found it to be the high quality I've come to expect from Natural Area Rugs. I was a bit surprised by the very flat & tight weave that is somewhat coarse. However, I think I will be able to achieve some cushioning from the rug pad I've selected. As another reviewer stated, the colors are a bit different than depicted on my screen ... the green stripe is more of a blue-green and the lightest cream stripes are darker than they appear (very light tan instead of cream/off-white). All in all, I think it will blend in well with the decor in the room and I think the quality will make it a very durable rug that will stand the test of time.
