This rug is a great value! It is a perfect neutural color but still adds a little color. I recommend a thick cushioning pad beneath it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on my screen was exactly what the rug looked like. I would describe the color as a soft golden tan.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug is a little thin but is very nice for the price. It needs a thick mat beneath it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? the site description was acurate.
This is an excellent rug for the money. It is very good quality and even has something of a handmade feel to it, which we like. The color was as described. It is not all that thick, although the pile appears to be the advertised .5 inch. There were a few irregularities cause from the rug being rolled for some time, but these are gradually disappearing with each vacuuming. By the way, we have had no shedding with this rug at all. To get this rug in any local story, we would have paid 2-4 times as much, or more. This is a great value when you're furnishing a new home and want to save some real money. We are so satisfied that we have ordered an even larger Safavieh rug for our master bedroom. We are looking forward to receiving it today.
I went with this rug because of color and brand. (Had purchased a Safavieh rug previously that I love.) This rug was the price I wanted and it serves the purpose well. One of the reviews stated that there isn't any shedding with this rug, but that has not been my experience. It's not a big deal for me bc I already have a cat and two kids under the age of three, so a bit of shedding isn't causing much mess compared to what I already had. I will say the shedding isn't terribly noticeable because of the short length of the fibers. We have this in a high traffic area of our home and it masks spills beautifully, which surprised me bc of it's light color. The color is exactly as appeared on my iPhone screen. I was surprised at the texture of the rug simply bc my other Safavieh wool rug is so plush and thick and soft. I intentionally bought a thin rug, I just wasn't expecting it to affect how far apart each strand was in the rug. It's still an excellent rug, durable, nice color, feels good underfoot (with a rug pad), serves the purpose well for which I bought it, and hides dirt and spilled coffee surprisingly well. If you have pets and/or kids, consider this as a viable option.
