"Absolutely Gorgeous ! "
The quality of this rug is beyond compare. I was especially drawn to the colors used and the rug does not disappoint. The workmanship is outstanding and I will treasure this piece of art. I know these rugs are also made to be used on the floor, but it is so beautiful, I have placed it over my stair case so it can be viewed more easily.
