i bought the 2.5x4.5 in this pattern. If you are looking at a larger size you won't have the issues i'm having. I love the style of this rug, nice colors, the stripes have great detail and coordinate nicely with the other bali collection rugs i ordered to scatter about the main living areas of my house. it is nice to have indoor/outdoor ease of care in the busy living area. My main complaint is that the rug is a bit flimsy. It doesn't lay flat (even though i rolled it the opposite way for a couple of days before placing it), and it won't stay put even with a rug pad. I think if it was a tad heavier it would be ok. Additionally, it is not completely "square". The edges are not parallel/perpendicular, there is a slight angle to it, so I can't get it to lay straight in the space. This wouldn't be as noticeable if it weren't a striped rug. That said, I am still trying to get it to flatten out and plan to keep it. I bought 2 larger rugs from this collection that I am much more happy with. I think the weight helps them to flatten out sooner, and adhere to the rug pads underneath.
Great indoor/outdoor rug

Love this line of rugs. Stains come out with just a little dish soap on a wet rag. Fabulous! Have a different design in mud room and kitchen. Bought this to go on our 3 season porch and even my husband likes it.

It looks beautiful. The rolled memory undid itself and stayed flat after 24 hours. Very happy with the material and the elegance.

Great value for the price. Versatile color and easy to clean.
Very attractive but edges won't stay down even when taped.

Great looking for my sunroom but no matter what we have tried, the edges will not lay down which makes dangerous .
