We long-needed area rugs in our dining and living rooms--these fit the bill on a tight budget. Nice sea grass weave, sharp borders (if a bit frayed), a bit prickly to walk on, but not as bad as other natural fiber rugs we've had. Compliments from all.
I love this rug. It looks exactly like another one I have that I paid a much higher price for. I'm a designer and would have no doubts about putting this rug in a clients home. I know other reviews have commented on the smell the rug gives off. It does this because it's a natural product made of grass. With time the scent goes away. These rugs hold up to all kinds of abuse from spilled drinks like red wine to pet vomit. Excellent for beach and lake houses.
If you are looking for a jute/seagrass/hemp/whatever rug, this is it. Nice basket design, good construction, true to photo. Just what I was expecting, and a great value. For a 9x12 rug, you really can't beat the price. It's heavy, no need for a pad underneath if you don't want. It's not soft on the feet, but you shouldn't think seagrass will be. Quite pleased with this purchase.
Color: It is not as gold \ yellow colored as sisal. It has more of a green undertone. I have read that this color will change over time, but I haven't had it long enough to notice.
Smell: I truly think that people overreact to the smell. Yes, when you initially roll out the rug, it does have an earthy "stinky" smell to it, but this fades in a few days. Unless you are having a party the night you open it, I think it is fine.
Wear and Tear: I had the carpet for a few weeks now, and I have cats and dogs. This is the reason I purchased this type of rug. The cats have scratched away and so far nothing seems to be disturbed on the rug. The dogs puked twice on it (the nice orange colored vomit) and it was easily cleaned up with no mark. I chose the seagrass over the sisal because I read several site stating that sisal will leave watermarks in spots when wet and the only way to get rid of it is to get the entire rug wet all over.
So, what you do not know about this rug is that it is a Safavieh Rug. OMG when this arrived I was totally thrilled. The Sea Grass is better for high traffic areas, I have this in my living room with a Pennsylvania Leather Couch and you would think this 9x12 rug was thousands of dollars. People talk about the smell, it lasts for about 2/3 day, however it is ORGANIC people, the smell is refresing I think. I am very happy with the prices, best online as well as the quality of this rug. I did some research and I found that Ralph Lauren paired up with Safavieh to do Sea Grass Rugs. The black baorder is crisp and does NOT collect lint or dirt. I have a 50 pound Boarder Collie and he LOVES this, he rolls his back on it and I see NO hair, nor tears. It is perfect to hide dirt. This rug also has little latex rubber dots on the back so, you will not need an extra slip pad. The corners laid flat in one day with putting some books on each end, just two corners, the other corners were perfectly flat. I am telling you this was a jackpot at the price on Overstock. I am so happy. If you are looking to compare... STOP here and BUY this one !
on Apr 18, 2012 someone from Customer service clarified this has a black border and not a beige as it states in description.
