I should have checked the pile height of .39. I thought it would be a cool, hip, modern design rug which can make you overlook the short pile that always makes rug seem cheap, but they style and pattern of it is so ugly in person that I can't imagine this being inside anywhere other than a college dorm room. Note that this rug has blues/greens in the pattern along with the ivory, black, grey. Wish the description indicated that!! I wouldn't have purchased it with those colors included in the pattern.
