I purchased two of these rugs for my large family room. I was leery to buy online, but was extremely pleased when they arrived. The colors are fabulous......so rich and cozy. They are thin, but still soft and with a pad underneath, they're wonderful. I do have one small section where the binding around the edge is starting to pull away from the rug and with them only being a couple months old and light wear on them, I wasn't very happy about that, but I think I can fix it. I would highly recommend these merely for the rich color and softness of the rug. Great rug for the price!!
We just updated our living room and this area rug was the focal point of the color scheme. We accented in dark red, with the primary colors being beige and black. The rug and runner pulled it all together. It's not a top quality rug, but you get what you pay for. We have animals so we prefer to get less expensive rugs and change them periodically. It's perfect for what we were looking for.
Colors are as close to true as you can get on a computer screen. Beautiful detail, doesn't look "cheap". The corners took a few days to finally curl down but I'd recommend just putting large soup cans on them to help flatten quicker. We're very pleased..just make sure to get the non-slip pad for underneath as the bottom of the rug will scratch wood floors.
My rug laid flat within a day. (I suspect I may have had better luck because I live in a damp climate.) It is so soft! My cat never laid on the floor before, but she lays on this rug and stretches and rolls. She loves the feel obviously. Now, this is not a $1,000 rug. I don't buy those because I have pets and visitors with pets. They have occasional accidents. When the rug gets fusty, it goes and I get a new one. I suspect the reviewers who didn't like the rug, expected a premium rug for a bargain basement price. You seldom get that, and this is not it either. However, the colors are vibrant. It feels luxurious (especially with a pad underneath) and it is a fabulous price. That is 5 stars in my book any day of the week.
