I wanted to like this area rug so much since I adored the pattern and some of the colors. I say "some" because the online photo looked MUCH lighter than the actual rug. The online photo looked more ivory whereas the rug itself was actually more a Tan or Camel color (darker). The strange thing was that I couldn't get over how the color made the rug look dirty...as if it used to be an ivory colored rug that needed some washing. It was a strange effect. I would have lived with the color since I ADORED the pattern and the overall open, airy, and happy feel of the colors/patterns, but sadly, I had to return the rug for a few reasons: 1) Manufacturer defect. There was a short row of missing carpet material that created a "part" in the carpet that I couldn't hide. 2) The carpet refused to lay flat! The Manufacturer rolled it so tight on the leading end (rolled in about 1 inch segments) that created intense creasing in this already very stiff carpet. I spent days trying different ways to get the carpet to lay flat and to remove the creases. I tried steam, placing heavy furniture on it, pouring water on it...and nothing worked. It's as if the creases were permanent. It looked horrible and became a tripping hazard. 3) Lastly, the carpet was delivered in a plastic bag. During shipping, the bag ripped in many locations and the carpet was streaked with black grease like substance. I worked for about 2 hours with Rug Doctor carpet spray to get those marks out. They were stubborn, which tells me the carpet is not very stain resistant. This was all very frustrating because I truly loved the look of the rug (once I got past the idea that it looked dirty) and was sad to have to return it. I am now on the hunt again to find another rug that catches my eye...but, I'm now a bit leary of getting another rug through Overstock.com that may have the same creasing issues. We'll see what happens.
