We bought this rug because we loved the style, and the style is great. Unfortunately the hand-tufted construction has been a headache from day 1 through the day that we have to get rid of this rug. For starters the fibers of the rug come out all over the place when you first install the rug, but after vacuuming it diligently the first week that will slow down. We're dog owners. 2 smaller dogs. 1 in particular will run into harm's way to chase blowing leaves, bird feathers, drifting fuzzies, etc.He's 2 years old and has a long history of living peacefully with carpet. My best guess is that he saw a group of fibers on the surface, aka a fuzzy, ate it, then picked at the fibers beneath that and found that they pull right up. In 15 minutes while I was showering the rug went from perfect to having a 2" diameter bald spot. He's since put 2 more large holes in it despite disciplining him while in the act and using bitter apple spray. Pet owners beware! Your dog might just mistake this rug for a giant deer carcass. Also I complained to Overstock customer service that rug basically fell apart when my dog pulled at it. They suggested getting it repaired locally and offered at 10% discount if I purchase a new rug. I don't know whether to be thankful or upset. It's just a bad situation where an otherwise well behaved dog destroyed a rug because of its unique construction. I know it's the dog's fault, but he absolutely doesn't get it. There's something deep and instinctive going on with him. Above all it's painful to lose $400.
I LOVE this rug and wish it had come in an even larger size. But since I love it so much, I'm going to order a second one! The colors are fantastic: pale blue, sage, camel, orange (muted), soft reddish-brown, several tans and browns, ivory. And some of the squares are woven with a different texture, which adds additional interest. Would work almost anywhere and is perfect for my wood floor/yellow-walls living room. It's a great way to add some color and movement into a room, without it being over the top. LOVE!
