These are fine. I got them to put under a little laptop table that I drag around the floor to prevent scratching and noise on the hardwood. I got the beige color. BUT, the set of two do not match. They are different colors (different shades of beige and the rug material is differently textured as well as being different colors). Plus, they are different sizes. One of the is a good 6 inches longer. So...I'll keep them to use as multipurpose mats/ floor protectors, but it annoys me a little to look at them. Also, they are quite thick! I was expecting something much thinner that would slide under a door when it opens, but not these mats! They seem rather good quality, really, they just aren't what I bargained for.
Mini poodle tracks in wet paw prints and dirt off the balcony and entering after a walk; I do too if it's raining. These jute rugs have a great look, a non-slip backing, can be swept or shaken of debris and have stayed looking good both at the indoor patio and front door. Highly recommend.
I've used these rugs many times and am ordering once again. Great area rugs for a small apartment. I also use them in a multitude of ways- as a mat inside the front door, for the kitchen floor in front of the sink, as a small runner, and as a pad under small pieces of furniture to protect my wood floors. the latex backing is a plus- it holds the rug in place and does not mar the floor finish. Best part of all, it's a very smooth weave- NOT at all rough like most jute rugs. I only wish they came in larger sizes. Great deal for the price, as well. I keep ordering the taupe, which look fabulous on a natural wood floor- very neutral and goes with everything. Highly recommended.
I assumed, incorrectly, that the 2 rugs would be identical since it was a 'set of 2'. However, the color of the jute surface differs from a natural beige-tone on one rug to a yellow tone on the other rug. Also, the color of the border on the rugs differs from green on one and natural color on the other. Since I planned to use the rugs in the same area, I am disappointed in the very obvious differences between them.
This is the second set of these rugs I have purchased (one year apart) and I love them. They hold up well to two boys and a dog bringing in mud, grass and other gross things. I have washed them and the fabric on the side cleans up very nicely. Highly recommend!
