Yeah, this review is a little late, but it's probably better than immediately after purchase. I've had this rug (brown) going on 2 1/2 years now, and it's still in amazing shape! The colors are still wonderful, and I vacuum twice a week! Still no holes or tears. Really, you can't beat the quality of a rug like this for this price.
I bought these because it coordinated well with the damask design in my family room. Bought it in brown and it looks great with my brown leather sofas. Love the low pile for the heavily tracked area where all family gettogethers start and end. Also bought the matching runners.
Bought a pad for underneath and it feels great. It looks great as well. It does fade over time though and becomes difficult to vacuum because it sort of gets packed down flat. (The parts that are under the coffee table are darker and fluffier than the rest of it.)
It took me a while to find a rug with the colors I wanted but not so traditional and common. I really liked the way it looked on the computer. When I received it a year ago, I liked the colors but thought it looked cheap. I kept it because I didn't want to deal with returning it and looking for another rug at a reasonable price. It's been a year. I have it under my dining table, and I think I will look for a replacement soon just because it bothers me that it looks cheap.
I recently purchased this rug after having hardwood floors installed. The rug arrived quickly, but was not used until several weeks after I received it. However, I had no problems getting the rug to lay flat. The rug is gorgeous and I will have no need for a pad because it will mainly be covered by a sectional sofa. Very good buy for the money.
Since I was looking for an area rug for our main family room, I didn't want to spend much on it. With 3 young kids running around, it would be silly to spend crazy money on something that is bound to have spills, snags, etc. I just received this the other day and laid it out. I'm very impressed with the look and feel. I was also happy to see how it smoothed out so well. I've seen runners that still curl up for weeks or months. This rug laid flat after a day. It is true to the picture and the design is great. I have the Black and Cream rug. So far I love it! The only reason I gave the quality 4 stars is that it is not the highest quality of a rug BUT for the price it is definitely a good quality and the value for the price is worth 5 stars for sure!
It's very strange to order a rug online. I kept hoping color would be at least close to the photo. Color is perfect, better than the photo. I put a pad under it to keep it from moving. I'm very happy with my purchase, looks great in my livingroom. BTW, delivery was very fast, I was impressed.
Sept. 2013 - We purchased 4 different sizes of this rug (black & cream) and love them all! They are well crafted and beautiful. A great accent to our new dark hardwood floors. They came quickly and were rolled up so there were no folds in them, which was nice! We would recommend these rugs without reservation.
