This rug is fabulous. It is quite beautiful and very soft. It arrives with quite a few wrinkles from being folded in the shipping box, however they settle down and smooth out after a few days. The edges lay flat and do not curl. Looks and feels wonderful. Makes a big impact in a room. We have our angled at the foot of our bed. My only disappointment is I was hoping for a leather smell, but ours doesn't have any smell.
