The only disappointment initially was that they had sold out of the black border rug. My second choice was to get the red border rug as I was desperately in need to protect my wood floors from my child and his rambunctious friends. Constrained by a budget and having read many rave reviews I decided to give it a try. The rug arrived within days in perfect condition. It was well-packaged therefore no dirt or damage done during transport. The red is more like burgundy but I didn't mind. In fact the red border and light-colored jute weave gives a nice accent/contrast to my very khaki/dark chocolate kitchen. I believe it worked out better than my first choice (black border.) The construction of the rug is top quality and the rubber backing saved me some money on having to buy a rug pad. I've only had it for three days so don't know how well it'll hold up against the chairs over time. I should probably have it scotchguarded too. How does one clean a sisal rug if stains get into the grooves? Overall it is a great product that won't eat away at your wallet. In some areas it doesn't lie completely flat but it's minute. It does not smell at all and rolls out easily. Compared to a very similar rug (possibly identical) I saw in a reputable retail store, this rug costs less than half of the onsale price of the other rug.
I bought one of these with a tan border. The label indicates it is jute from India, not sisal as advertised. The quality is okay, but it's not what is advertised. Overstock gave me a $15.00 credit, so I decided to keep it. Just be aware it's not sisal.
I like this rug. It is casual but looks good against the hardwood floors in my dining room. I got the light green boarder and Scothguarded it right away. Otherwise it would have gotten grimy in just a few days. I gave only an average rating to "ease of assembly" because it arrives rolled with the top side out, so you can't just unroll it where you want it--you have to flip it over! That was quite a job for me because my husband was out of the country at the time! The non skid backing makes it lie flat and not slip--which was great after I finally got it into position. Overall a nice rug at a good price.
I was very happy with the rug when it arrived. It is of the same quality of others I have purchased but at a lesser price, especially for the size. The rubber backing keeps in in place and it works perfectly under my dining room table.
Bought this rug to protect my new wood floor from dining chairs. It's really taken a beating in the month I've had it but still looks good. Didn't bother with rug pad because it's got a latex back and table weight holds it. My only complaint is that the color of binding appeared online to be rusty red, which would have been perfect, but actual color is burgundy. I notice the difference from chair covers, but no one else seems to. I might have returned it for perfect color, but a houseful of guests were arriving for a week, and I needed it down. They all thought it looked great. I shopped around online and in town, and the price couldn't be beat. Great for casual rooms!
This rug is really very, very attractive. The thing I liked the best about it was that the back of the rug is slightly tacky so that it sticks to the floor so it won't slip and you don't need a rug pad. But when you pick the rug up there is no stickiness on your floor. Highly recommend this product!
This type of rug has been a pleasant and functional floor covering in my home for 10 years. Overstock.com was the only place I could find the desired style and size in an affordable price. The on-line stores were too expensive for an outdoor rug. Although the rug has several small flaws, it is perfect for the enclosed patio!
I was a little disappointed in this product, compared to other things I have purchased through Overstock. The rug does not lie quite flat, even with a mat underneath. This takes away from its appearance and makes it a little less pleasant to walk on.
I ordered this 8x10 rug on Monday afternoon and had it by Weds. Wow. We use this under our kitchen table. It is high quality and looks nice. It vacuums nicely. Does show all water spots so difficult to keep looking new. Overall we are pleased with rug at the great price. We looked long and found nothing we liked better. Haven't had to clean it yet so can't report on that.
I rug was delivered on-time and was everything that I expected. I really like the casual look of the rug and the quality is very nice. Although, if you have a cat this may not be the rug for you. My cat loves to use his claws on the rug (not good). Overall, the rug is great.
This rug arrived quickly. A super price for a great quality rug. I looked everywhere for rugs of this kind. Saw many with flaws. This one arrived with no flaws, no smell, thick and durable. I am very pleased and would buy another for another room. I definitely recommend!
I ordered an 8x10 sisal rug with a black border for my Dining room and couldn't be happier with it. I looked at several well known stores and websites for the rug and overstock.com had the best price and color selection. I would highly recommend it.
I received this lovely big rug today and was most suprised at how fantastic it looked on my hardwood floors. I bought it with some trepidation - have never purchased a rug on-line. It goes with everything - is a great compliment to my pale yellow walls - I bought the red trim. It's light (in weight) - multi-neutraled - and gives the room an airy, almost tropical retreat feel. I'm using it for my home office and can honestly say that this rug is going to make this a place I look forward to working in. True, it isn't soft - but your are purchasing this rug for textural appeal to the eye. It creates a certain atmosphere - casual with great character. I highly recommend it. And it has actually caused me to clean up my office because now it is a place I'll be proud to show off when I have guests. When I had just boring old cheap throw rugs about, I'd keep the door closed and allow no entry when I had little soirees. Also, I read some complaints from other reviewers about the smell - but the smell is one of newly mown hay - people spend lots of money on scented candles and oils to create this charming country smell. I hope the sweet fragrance NEVER goes away. And now I'm even saving on candles in here! It's a great buy and worth every penny (and it isn't very many pennies). Buy this rug today!
