I had read the reviews before I purchased this rug. I knew it was going to be lightweight. The colors were a little more muted that I was expecting, however, I like it and it fits right in with my decor. I am using it in my den. Had thought I might use it in my dining room, but it looks better in the den. It changes up the room and makes it feel warmer. It came quickly and in a smaller box than I had expected. I would recommend this rug. I have it over my carpet. I can see if it was put directly over a hard floor, it would definitely need a rug pad.
I am so happy with this rug. It was heavier than I expected for a flat weave and while it is not super soft like a 100% wool rug would be I like the addition of the jute because it is going in a high traffic area of my home. The colors are not as bright as I had hoped, especially the blue which is more like a dark slate grey, but it still is a beautiful rug. It will work excellently with my whole bohemian funky mismatchy look that I'm going for in my place. I would of expected to pay at least $100 more for this rug in any store.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was more muted in person

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was acurate besides the colors being not as vibrant
This rug is so beautiful! I had one in 5 X 8 and thought I was getting another 5 X 8, but, received a 6 x 9 rug! It's larger and more of a presence in my large living room. Now, I have the 5 X 8 in my den. It's wonderful to have 2 rugs that match. And, what a bonus, to have received a larger size! (Which isn't even available online!) Thanks Overstock for a happy little accident!

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good, except I got a larger rug, and, I am thrilled
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THIS IS A FLAT RUG THAT IS NOT SOFT ON THE FEET DUE TO THE JUTE FIBER. I KNEW ALL OF THAT BEFORE I PURCHASED IT AND I AM VERY PLEASED. IT IS WELL MADE, THE COLORS ARE RICH AND STRONG AND EVERYONE WHO SEES IT WANTS ONE.
This rug is lovely, however, the colors are not as bright as pictured. They are very muted. More of a rust and grey tone. I am keeping it, because I have the runner (which is wonderful, also at Overstock) and I wanted them to somewhat match. The runner is vibrant colors, and, this rug is VERY muted, but, I like the heft of it and it's a nice rug. The fringe is not so long (like some I'd bought at import stores) that it will be difficult to vacuum. It is flat weave, but, not as flat and lifeless as other rugs also bought at import stores. (Won't name them, but, xxx is the initial!) If you can accept that it's not as bright as pictured, it's a great rug. It's well made and lovely. Just not bright reds and blues. More like rusty and grey.
I enjoy the craftwmanship of this artisan rug. But buyer beware!! Notice the tag on the rug import slip. Directly from India it states "70% jute/30% wool"..The rug description on all sizes at Overstock states 80%wool/20% jute. this date 4/24/10. I have reported this to them and I hope they check their imported rugs more carefully. This rug would make a great wall hanging in any size!!
This rug is exactly as it is described. It adds an eclectic look to my mostly contemporary decor of my pre-war apt. The colors are perhaps a bit more muted than in the photo but otherwise it looks exactly the same. I am very happy with this purchase - worth every penny.
After months of renovation in my antique farmhouse, I was eager to finally start putting in the details that would make the place "home." This woven rug is exactly the piece I needed for one area of the LR; the colors of charcoal, maroon reds, and slate grey, work to tie in that corner with my decor. I love the simple, bold pattern, and the rough feel of the jute/wool blend. As an "armchair traveler," I enjoy filling my home with handmade arts that denote exotic, or primitive cultures. I am very pleased with the ease of ordering from Overstock.com, and the timely manner in which I receive my goods.
I bought this rug for our second home "cabin feel" and I am thrilled about it. It is exactly what I was looking for. The brick color is a little more dull than what I expected but overall it is a great buy for the money. I would recomend it if you are looking for a "cabin feel" rug.
Not as soft as some of the wool rugs I've purchased from Overstock (feels more like rough jute, but very thin), so probably not appropriate for a bedroom or for children to spend a lot of time on (my son had marks on his knees from playing on it). For a high traffic area it is great. Colors are a bit more muted in person, which I like. Looks very high end at a fraction of the cost. A rug pad is a must though.
this is a massive, well-made rug for the price point. colors are much less brilliant in person, so plan for more rust/gray where you see red and blue. jute content is really high, so this is best for areas with high traffic and low lounging- it's a bit scratchy on the feet. a great fit for my kitchen, but would not work in a bedroom or living room.
The rug arrived today (two days earlier than scheduled) and it's absolutely beautiful!, As other reviewers have said, for those of us who spend much of our summer barefooted, it's a bit scratchy underfoot, but that in no way affects how really great looking it is. The colors are perfect for its surroundings in living room, and I'm looking forward to a long life together!
