Imagine this rug on a black hardwood floor, with two Medford Black & White Houndstooth Chairs and the Austin Pearl Sofa, and you'll have a close resemblance to a Barbara Barry/Hollywood Regency look for thousands less than you'd pay for the real deal. This rug really tied everthing together! The color is actually more ivory than white, so there's not too stark a contrast with the black flooring; yet it brings so much balance to the overall interior design of the room. The pile is very dense and feels wonderful underfoot. I am very happy with my purchase and, in fact, followed the advice of another reviewer who recommended opting for the larger 5'x8' rug. If you have the space, definitely go larger rug -- keeping in mind that the five foot width is the widest part of the rug (between the "leg") areas. While the smaller version of the rug is equally lovely, the most narrow part of the rug will not be wide enough to properly place a cocktail table. The rug is very well-made, too. I'd definitely recommend this style over the typical rectangular shape so as to add interest to the decor.
I love this rug. The background is cream not white as it appears in the picture, which i think is better. It is a very well made rug and does not look cheap as a lot of zebra rugs do. If you're looking for a zebra rug, look no further...buy this one.
Great rug for the price. Fits in my husbands study on an angle. The cutout shape allows the office chair to miss rolling on the rug. Great decorator item.

This rug is an excellent price compared to other sites and their prices on similar rugs. I was very pleased with the pile, and quality of the rug. material. I wanted a zebra print rug and I kept coming back to this one, and I am glad I ordered it. The only thing to consider is because of the irregular shape of the rug it appears smaller than the 5 X 8, in person, so keep that in mind when you choose your size rug.

This is a beautiful, quality-made rug! The background color is off-white or ivory ... not white, which I prefer. The black stripes are not as prominent as they appear in the picture; there's more of the ivory background with smaller / thinner black stripes. I would consider this rug more a "fun" piece than a "fashion" piece. It can be used in almost any room you like ... from a child's nursery to a dining room to a living room or even a bathroom. It makes a definite statement and is very plush underfoot.

The stripes were miniscule. They look substantial on the picture. They are tiny black stripes with WAY more background color. Looks like a white tiger rug, NOT a zebra rug. Plus, it doesn't even measure up to a 5 x 8, even with measuring the longest points. I can't believe so many people gave it 5 stars...
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The background was definitely more of an off white.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality looks fine.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not accurate. The picture displayed is not even close to the product I received.
I love this rug! I previously ordered a plush type of faux zebra rug that was always shifting and shedding everywhere. I finally took it off the floor and used it as a throw for the dogs to lie on. This rug is absolutely gorgeous and gives me none of the problems the plush rug gave me. It seems to be high quality and is very soft. You will not be sorry if you purchase this rug.

This is a great rug! I was a little nervous about ordering it even though it got very good reviews, but I am very glad I did. The colors are black and off white. In person, I think it appears to have more of the off white than black. It is very well made, very soft and thick. I bought the 5'x8' size and laid it over a rectangular natural jute rug in my livingroom. I love the look!
This rug is great! I originally wanted a zebra cowhide, but when I saw the reviews for those compared to this one, I decided the price and the comments meant I'd get more bang for my buck. I couldn't be happier. The background is pretty creamy, but hey, at least it won't show dirt as badly as white would...I still LOVE it!
I ordered this rug after reading the reviews that other customers had given. I must say that they were not wrong. This rug is beautiful. It looks great and it feels great to walk on. Everyone that sees it just loves it. I am thinking about ordering another one to use in my music room. This one is going in my bedroom when the painting is finished. You will not be disappointed if you order this beautiful rug. It's what will put the WOW in any space you decide to use it. It is definitely worth the money. Great product overstock. This one is a winner.
We purchased this rug for our son's nursery and it is wonderful. It is nice and thick and we've already had to remove a red stain from it (done by daddy, not the baby) and it came out with no trouble at all. We know we'll be able to use this rug in any number of rooms once our little one decides on a different motif for his room later on.
