I purchased the 3'3" x 4'11" in red to put in front of my fireplace. It looks elegant and suits the area perfectly. I have two Newfoundlands, a well trained 7yo and an incorrigible 7mo 85lb puppy. She did peepee on the carpet two days ago. I took the carpet outside, turned it over and seriously hosed it down. It started to rain and I left it outside. Yesterday my husband folded it over the fence right side up to dry. We left it on the fence all day and brought it in this morning. To my surprise it was totally dry and looked as beautiful as it did the day I received it! I couldn't be more pleased. As a result, I'm buying another in the same size for my kitchen as well as the runner for my upstairs hall both in ivory. Well done KM Home!!
