Great statement rug
We bought this rug for our living room to add some bold patterns and color to the space. The quality is excellent so the value you are getting here is great. The whites and blues are slightly muted versus the picture, the white especially has a very natural wool color white but adds to the character and makes the construction more authentic. I suggest a good rug pad the same size as the rug, the rug is thin and slips easily on hardwood floors. We get a ton of comments on this rug due to its unique style, certainly not something youll find in most stores. Also, this item shipped directly from Spain and arrived very quickly via small parcel air delivery. Great experience overall!
