I wanted a large, colorful, unique rug for my small apt. kitchen. They didn't have these in my local store, but when they went on sale for half price, I gambled and bought 2 online. They are terrific! Identical in pattern and color to what I see on my monitor-- bright but not neon. Basic rug, nice quality, soft, but not plush. I removed the thread binding on one side of each rug, and laying the pattern alternating ways, connected them (w/carpet tape, and by rebinding the edges) to make one big rug. It looks great, and cost me less than twenty bucks! Couldn't be happier.
