[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First off, the blue really brightens up the room. I like the relaxing color and not overly busy design pattern. I'm not into the flowery or too colorful designs I see in a lot of area rugs. This one works well, and covers a nice 5'x7' area—almost exactly the length of my sofa on the long end and the length of my loveseat on the other, with a coffee table in the middle. Perfect!
