I have this rug in our sunroom and I must say for the price I am very satisfied with this sisal. I was afraid it would stain and very shortly after putting it down our little 2 yr old nephew spilled apple juice on it. I cleaned it with soapy water and there is no evidence of any stain. I would buy this carpet again, it looks great.

I bought the 8x10 sisal rug in beige to go in my dining room over hardwood floors. It's fabulous! The beige border is pretty much the same color as the rug itself which was fine with me. It's soft enough that my 2.5 yr old sits and plays on it and I can walk barefoot across it with nothing 'sticking' me! Overstock shipped it so quickly and it arrived in good packaging. There was no damage and once unrolled, it flattened completely out overnight. I'm thrilled with this purchase and once we rip out carpet in our master bedroom, I plan to buy another one to put over wood floors. I highly recommend this rug!
Beautiful rug that we put in our dining room. Great for us because we dine in there for special occasions only, and we have an all adult household. Can be difficult to remove a spill stain, which could be a problem for high traffic, spill prone, or pet households.
First, I ordered the rug about 4 PM and the rug was on my porch the next morning by 9AM. I can't believe how quickly I received it. I ordered the black binding on my rug to go over a dining room table that has black legs and black chairs with antique pine tabletop. The rug immediately lay flat. It had only a slight smell which was barely noticeable. The quality of the rug is excellent. It feels soft to bare feet. I have a friend who has bought two of these rugs from a popular store and paid more than twice as much as I paid, and my Overstock rug is as good quality or better than hers. The rug is very attractive and enhances our traditional furnishings. I am sure it would great with modern or any period of furnishings, and I may order more of these rugs for other rooms. .
We bought this rug in an 8x10 and 5x7 for our family room. It looked great with our furniture and cherry hardwood. BUT.... the sweeping is a nightmare. I couldn't figure out how so much dust/dirt was being tracked into our home when my brother mentioned that this rug crushes under foot. It would not be a problem outdoors, but indoors I was having to sweep THREE times a day -gets worse with wear as fibers break down. We moved the rugs outdoors to see if we noticed a difference and it was a dramatic change. I like softer rugs in the house too as the dog and kids don't like sitting on the hard floor.
i am very pleased with this rug. all the other reviews helped me make the decision to purchase this online. smelled a little when opened but that went a way after about 2 weeks. great addition to my dining room. just the look i was going for. i would recommend this! the price was very good. every place else i looked they were far more expensive.
Only buy sisal rugs if you never plan to spill anything on them. I bought one from Overstock, thinking it would be a practical choice with pets in the house. They are impossible to clean - as has been the case with a soup spill on mine. If you wet them, they shrink. If you put baking soda on to get rid of stains with a "dry-cleaning" method, the baking soda bleaches them. If you try rug cleaning liquid, that too leaves a stain. If you run a hose on them to get them clean, they shrink and take for ever to dry. My regular rug cleaning company refuses to clean them - saying they have to be dry-cleaned and if water is used on them they will shrink. The colored band around the edges bleeds on to the rug when it is wet.. They are totally over-rated because they are a "natural" product. Think twice before purchasing one.
This is a great rug for the price, looks nice & is sturdy. My only complaint is on the color options, I chose "Red" as it goes with the rest of the room and the color is actually a very dark deep burgandy. Just wanted to put this warning up for others. I would have bought one of the similar rugs here had I known it was this color.
The size of this rug opens up my living room. It gives a clean look, but you can hardly walk on it barefoot (knots are too hard/rough). The rug can be a little crooked, which may become obvious if you have multi-colored stained wood floors. Can smell like hay in the beginning, but goes away after a week. Very happy with this purchase.
