Hi! There's been some confusion about the same question I asked for another similar 5x8 rug, so I just want to clarify. All I'm asking is for someone to measure the width of this rug (only 1 rug, not all of them in stock) just to get an idea whether it is slightly under 5', exactly 5', or slightly over 5'. I know there can be some variation in 5x8 rugs and any of those scenarios is possible. It really is important and it would be so much easier than the large expense and hassle of trying to return the rug if the size was slightly off. Please respond ASAP as I've been waiting since Jan 12th for a response! Thank you!
When I told a friend I ordered a giraffe print rug for the dining room, she thought I was a bit nuts. When she saw it, she changed her mind immediately! The rug doesn't scream animal print. It is a much higher quality than I expected. Unlike other posts, I do not agree that it sheds horribly. Yes, it will shed a bit the first few vacuums, but it is significantly less in comparison to other rugs I've purchased especially considering the thickness. I've had it for several months and highly recommend it. I think the color isn't as vibrant/dark in comparison to the photo. I have it on light wood flooring under a dark modern dining table. Dog hair vacuums easily and the meatball my boyfriend dropped didn't leave a stain with a quick blot with rug cleaner....

The rug is just the way I imagined it. It works perfectly in my office. The fibers do shed a bit at first but that's usually the case with a wool rug.Read More
Love my new rug! Seems to be great quality. I just wish my cat would stop scratching it! I have bamboo floors and was looking for a natural fiber rug for my 20 month old to play on- cushions the floor as I was hoping. Will probably move the rug to my daughters room. Great price, great product.Read More
Love this rug! Looks really great and well made. Goes perfectly with the giraffe theme I'm going for our son's nursery. My friends used it as part of decoration for our baby shower and received countless compliments. I cant say enough good things about the Quality and color! (also nice and thick).Read More
This rug is totally worth it. I bought it for my daughters room and it is such great quality.Read More
I bought two of these for my daughter's rooms. What a terrible mistake! They arrived on time and as described, no issues there. The problem was after arrival. They shed for one month and there was lint everywhere all the time ... not fun. After many vacuums it finally stopped. Not, after ONLY 6 MONTHS, they look awful! The white parts are all black, they are so dirty and the rug looks warn and terrible. This is not recommended in children's rooms. The kicker is that you can't get it professionally cleaned. Instructions say you need it to clean it yourself Who is going to wash this heavy, thick pile, wool rug? I'm so upset I'm stuck with these after spending the money to buy two Unless you're single and have no traffic in your place, I don't recommend these for anyone else. Don't make the mistake I did.Read More
Be prepared to vacuum this thing daily. One hour after vacuuming, it looks like a trio of shedding cats rolled all over it. We've probably vacuumed it two dozen times so far, but it's stills still throwing off fuzz like nobody's business. If not for that, this would be a perfect rug. It's plush, soft, and cushiony.Read More
We got this rug for our baby's nursery. It fits the space perfectly. The delivery was prompt and the quality of the rug is quite good for the price. The only negative aspect we have found is that the rug pills a lot. Hopefully this will improve over time.Read More
This rug arrived promptly about 4-5 days after I purchased it. The description is right on point. It really livens up the living room! Colors are a beautiful chocolate brown with cream. This was definitely a great buy!Read More

Hello leslars, I'm sorry that information is not available. All the rugs would slightly vary. Have a great day!
How to Size Your Room For an Area Rug
A rug in the right size can complement the whole room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull room, or make a subtle statement. However, if it's too big or too small, it may leave the impression of an unfinished or poorly decorated room. Before you start shopping for area rugs, you'll want to size the room. This guide will help you to select the right size rug in any room.
How to Place an Area Rug
Area rugs establish the style and color in a room, add warmth and texture, muffle sounds, and help to divide, identify, and conquer space. Area rugs also feel soothing under tired feet, keep high-traffic areas cleaner, and protect fine flooring. With all of the qualities, you'll want to start shopping for them immediately. But before you begin, be sure to read these ideas and simple rules of placement, so you can buy the right rugs and make the most of them.
