I have tile floors but recently purchased large area rugs for all rooms in my apartment because my two elderly dogs started having trouble walking on the tiles. I needed rugs that were large, affordable, and durable - and hiding spots would be a bonus (see previous comment about elderly dogs :-p). I also wanted them to bring some color and liveliness to my apartment. This one has great colors and goes well with another Nourison rug I purchased. You can see in the picture that it’s still flattening out, but I’m hopeful that will resolve soon. It feels soft to walk on and not too fragile for an apartment with pets - as you can see, it did not take long for the dogs to start throwing their bones all over it. :-p Very pleased with my purchase (and with Nourison rugs in general).
