Overall, the rug is exactly what I thought it was from the description. However, I was expecting the rug to have some gray throughout because of the picture, as well as the description of the product. The rug was completely black, without any gray undertones whatsoever. I was initially disappointed, as it would have looked a lot better with my color scheme had the rug had some gray throughout. But, luckily, I do have black accessories in my living room, so it pulled it all together. The description did note that the color can vary slightly, so I was expecting that the rug might be a bit darker than on the screen. But, again, I would say that based on the description, even a little bit of gray would have sufficed. On a positive note, though, this rug brings a lot of texture to a room and is very, very different than traditional rugs. The leather strips that are woven between the cotton cording make the rug have a very rugged and earthy feel ... very textured. You see shiny pieces of leather, as well as matte suede mixed throughout. It's quite heavy. Oh, and definitely put a pad beneath it. The instructions called for a pad to protect your flooring in case of bleeding. This is going on hardwood laminant flooring, so I'm not as concerned with staining. But, if you are putting this on carpet, I would strongly suggest a nice pad so you don't ruin the color of your rug in the even that the leather rug gets damp and leaves behind a stain. A really great and unique rug. Just what we were looking for.
I really have enjoyed this rug. I purchased it for my bedroom so I wanted something darker to match the decor. The color is darker than represented in the picture, more blue/grey/charcoal/black tones. It softened up after a year or so and is much more comfortable to walk on now, though its not super cozy or anything it being leather and all. Very cool & mod with a rustic flair and a killer deal for the price
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Relatively close but different tone, darker and bluer
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Durable & well made
The rug itself looks pretty close to the picture, but a bit on the lower end of quality. It has a fairly strong leathery smell. It has 2 large creases running the length of the rug because it is shipped folded. I could not get the creases out.
Fair price for a unique rug that promptly arrived in a surprisingly small package which resulted in numerous folds and creases deeply imbedded into the rug. The color and texture worked well in the bedroom but months later the unsightly creases remain which has resulted in the rug being relegated to my basement workshop where it's uneven leather surface has made it the favorite back-scratching spot in the house for my retrievers. Save your money.
