I bought this in ivory (8x8) for my bedroom, hoping it would absorb some of the noise issues I've been having. I used standard delivery and the rug took about 10 days+ to arrive I can't really tell if the rug has helped with the noise issues, or if its the fact I also have some other furniture in the bedroom which has helped drown out the noise issue....but back to the rug.... It was well packaged in clear heavy duty plastic and was easy to open. The rug itself is very heavy (8x8 size) for a single gal to move, dragging is the only option. I didn't have help laying the rug, and my bedroom is not big enough to move the bed completely out of the way to centralise the non-slip which I had purchased for this rug, so everything is off centre. That said the rug is a very deep shag, and feels great under bare feet. Tip if you are laying a rug of size by yourself and buying a non-slip pad, measure and mark out the placement first to ensure everything is centred! I had no issues with curling rug corners or any chemical or odd smells from the new rug. It lay flat straight away. Because the shag is so deep the cabinet next to the bed did wobble a bit when it was sat on the rug. I've had to move the rug forward to ensure the side cabinets are not sitting on the rug. If I knew this before I would have bought a slightly smaller sized rug.

I was looking for an 8X8 square ivory shag rug to go with a gray sofa. This rug turned out better than I thought because the shag texture gives off some gray tones. Rug is plush and doesn't shed. Great price and great quality.

I did a quickie budget redesign of my decor-challenged best friend's new house and she needed a mod rug so we ordered this one. When I saw it at her place, I liked it a lot and when we moved to a new home, I realized the color was also perfect to go with an existing patterned rug in an open concept space. It is very soft underfoot and doesn't seem to look messy, though it is in a space that doesn't get walked though. I love it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good. Maybe more of a light taupe than ivory -- it doesn't have a yellow tone, which is perfect.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was a little smelly for a few days but that is gone
