Ordered 2 of these for LR/DR areas. Held my breath til they arrived, hoping the color was true to my computer screen. It was and They are beautiful! The fiber is more like strings than yarn. They seriously feel different than any rug I've stood on. Barefoot it feels like you are standing in shallow water, like the last bit of a wave on the sand...can't explain that but even my guests say it. They have a coolness to the touch. The color changes in my room ( I have south windows )from light teal to dark teal depending on the amt and type of light . It seems to me they are a green teal. I can't explain it but these rugs are so unique in their color 'behavior'. Be sure to vaucumn on a higher floor setting. Also when we first put them down, the edges seemed to be cut uneven, They were not, just the pile didn't all lay down the same way. After about a week, it has layed down and looks even. The color does not look like a solid single color, if that's what you're looking for, it has 'movement' with the sheens. It reminds me of a calmer ocean. I absolutely love everything about it! Can't speak to it's wearability as I have only had them a short time, but so far I couldn't be more pleased! .
I actually bought 5 different rugs in this material- 2 runners, 2 5x7's, and an 8x10. I was thrilled when they arrived. Even got the expensive under pads for them. I've had them about 8 months. Noticed yesterday, areas where you sit often and put your feet, the rugs are wearing down. Not just a bit worn, but flattened out fibers mushed together. I'm going to need to try and figure out how on earth to separate those tiny silky DELICATE threads. Reminds me of when our dogs get matted- and I cut those out... Areas that don't get "used", under tables, out of pathways, etc. are still great. Color is wonderful. Just be aware they're made for looks NOT use, in my opinion.
Like other reviews the 'thread' of the shag on this carpet is a thin silky one-most unusual feeling under foot ever! Soft, silky-almost slippery this is a gorgeous sensation. Alert- it is VERY aqua, very bright. I almost sent it back because in an 8x10 the color is a bit overwhelming. I got out voted by hubby and son who suddenly love sitting on the floor! Dog adores it too so I get the whole couch-bonus! If you are looking for a bright spot in the house this is the perfect rug for it. I did find some drapes to match but it's not easy being blue-green!
Ordered this for our guest bedroom which is utilized often by our young granddaughter for weekend sleepovers. The color is beautiful and I often catch myself stopping in the hallway just to look at the rug. The texture is equally soothing, unlike traditional shag rugs. If you purchase this rug, you will not be disappointed.
