I ordered the 5x8 size for our kitchen dining nook:
I love it!! I wish it were a little wider, but when ordering from places like West Elm you have to work with what they offer. However, this rug is just as awesome as I had thought... it's so soft and looks great. Someday I'd love to have a house with all hardwoods and I'd put this rug in the family room for sure!
As for the kitchen, our weekends are booked up the next couple weeks, but I hope to get to the backsplash as soon as I can!!
