we are renovating & redecorating our 1920's 3 story home. This rug is a highlight of the living room. We have a beauti ful 1930's sofa & an antique 1887 pump organ in immaculate condition in that room & the rug brought it all together & gives the victorian look I want. The colors in the rug are beautiful pastels and I love walking in my bare feet on it. It is so plush. The first comment from some friends entering the room concerned the lovliness of the rug. The antiques were secondary. Can you beat that!?
