We bought the round rug and the large runner. Received them (with pads) 8/12/15, and have been vacuuming everyday since (today is 9/9/15). These rugs shed terribly, but will keep them instead of going through the hassle of returning.
The colors in this rug are rich. It looks just like the web site pictures. We are really happy with the quality and heaviness of the rug. Now I want to order another one to go under my dining room table.
