I love this rug! It lives in my library, and it brightens up the whole room! When I remove it from time to time to clean it, the room looks dull and uninviting. This was one of my first purchases from NOVICA, and I have never regretted it! The rug is very well made; it has been in use for about eight years, and although it gets a lot of misuse from my dog (as well as lying on it more than anywhere else in the house, she loves to run into the room and have the rug slide across the floor under her feet ? weird dog!), it doesnt look as though it has been used much at all! Ill say it again; I love this rug! Thank you for making such a wonderful and beautiful product!
