Size is pretty accurate & it fits perfectly under my 6 person dining room table with room to spare when I add the leaves to the table. I received the rug in 4 days (WOW!) & it came neatly rolled up & is laying flat very well. I have heavy books on the end that was rolled tightly which I should be able to remove in a few days. The colors are close to the picture but the main part is definitely a golden beige -camel color with what I can best describe as gray-flecking stripes. Sounds strange, but it looks very nice. I think the outside colors were described as red & green and that is not an accurate description. The colors on the outside are a wine/burgundy (not red) and a grayish green (not teal or aqua). The colors aren't perfect for what I wanted, but I like the rug so much and the colors are so rich that I'm going figure out how to make it work. (The green is grayer than I thought). The rug is soft and slides around a little, but for right now I do not have any kind of pad underneath and it seems fine with the table & chairs on it. Other things that might be helpful to know. It is made in Egypt & actually called the Amelia rug made by Sphinx of Oriental Weavers. The tag says that professional cleaning is recommended and that regular vacuuming & rotating is also recommended. It is 100% heat -set polypropylene. My one final thought. Because of the pattern of this rug, If you are going to place this underneath a dining room table make sure you have enough space in your room when you center the middle of this rug under your ceiling light fixture.
The rug is very true to the item pictured. The colors are nice and it blends with my dining room very well. The rug is a decent quality for the cost. I put a felt pad under it and it is more luxurious with the pad. I wish it had been rolled differently for shipping. It's been down about 3 weeks and the one edge still rolls up where it was rolled for shipping. If manufacturer could fold in half and then roll, it would eliminate the "roll-up" problem. I would recommend this to a friend.
Was not sure about the colors but they go very well with my dining room chairs. Some wrinkles but not sure how they got there -- looks like four wrinkles/creases from folding but the rug was rolled. Left it out overnight and put tons of heavy cookbooks on the ridges and they are basically gone. Wasn't horrible to start with as per other comments. Not overly plush but a very tight, compact, somewhat short pile. It seems like it will be perfect for dining area, but just got it 2 days ago. The cat tried to claw it and she leave 'rake marks' where her nails go but no permanent damage, but she seems to love it as well if that helps anyone. The colors range from a burgundy red to a wine-y purple to a dark cherry red with black speckles, and the browns, grays and goldish tan. I was looking for the right red/purple tones and there's enough variety that while one doesn't exactly match, overall it looks good. Bought a good premium pad to make it more substantial and plush. Very nice rug for the money.
We really like the color pattern of this rug, it works well with our new dining room décor. We read another review that indicated we might have a problem with creases in the rug from the way it was shipped. And unfortunately that was true in our case. It took us a week to get them out before we could put the rug under our table. They really need to rethink the packaging. If they had wrapped it around a cardboard tube, it would have made a big difference.
Arrived within 7 days. The rug looks exactly like the one pictured, the quality is excellent and the colors are wonderful. For the price, what you get is outstanding, I am thrilled, even my husband loves it. So glad I ran across Overstock, the price and quality beat other stores hands down. Highly recommend.
This carpet is very beautiful but the packaging was horrible. when we unroll the carpet it was lumpy and edges wouldn't stay down. We have to tape the edges to the floor so that the kids wouldn't trip over it. I am hoping to remove the tape in a couple days to see if stay down. I also recommend a you buy a grip to put under if you are not putting something heavy on it. The product it self is great, the pile is better than i thought it would have been and the color is beautiful
I received this rug and loved it immediately. It did have a defect in that about a 2 inch area of binding was unraveled. I contacted o.co immediately and they shipped me another rug right away. The rug is soft and easy on the feet, yet has been durable even with 4 grandchildren. It looks great in my room!!
I hesitated to order a rug without seeing it in person first, but my I am very pleased with my purchase! The colors are perfect for my family room (tan, gold, deep red, and olive green). Very plush and easy to care for. A great price for the quality and the size (8'2 X 10). Also, flattened out nicely by putting furniture on the edges for a day or two.
The material has a nice feel and the quality seems ok. But I just can't get past the design. The "speckles" spread across the rug make it look really dirty. I had to look closely to figure out that it was actually new. It looked like it was sitting in a smokey bar for several years. Maybe it will grow on me, but for now I'm leaning towards buying a different rug.
I bought these rugs to go in my den/kitchen dining area. The furniture in these rooms are a dark brown. These rugs matched the overall look of the room as well as lightened it up a lot with their light tan center. I bought 2 just alike since they are placed close together. One is under the kitchen table and one is in den couch area. They are comfortable and look so. My kids were impressed and that says a lot. The den rug has padding underneath but kitchen one doesn't since it is placed under a table. But both rugs still provide enough cushion for your feet.
The colors of this rug are brighter and prettier in person. The texture is very smooth with a slight sheen. The rug is not all that thick, so you can tell it's not the "highest" quality, but it is a very good rug for the price. I'm very happy with it and it looks great in my dining room!
