I was a bit skeptical buying an outdoor rug sight-unseen. However, I couldn't find this size at this super price anywhere online or otherwise. Delivery was quick as usual with all my O purchases. It came rolled in plastic, so of course there were little bumps in the rug after laying out. These went away in a couple days. There were a couple "dirty" marks on it when I laid it flat for the first time. Cleaned up perfectly with a little soap and water. I put v-shaped 2-sided carpet tape on all four corners, after smoothing flat, so the corners would be "trained" flat. Worked like a charm. LOVE the colors. Really brightened up my screened-in porch. If you are looking for fluffy, then this is not your rug. It's very soft underfoot, but not a pile like you would have on indoor rugs. I do not want a rug liner since rain will blow into this area with high winds. Great decorating item and very practical.
Nice rug, very soft, colors are beautiful, more yellowish green, looks great of my deck, great buy for the price, all others this size are $300+

Should have trusted the previous reviews. This is a great looking "outdoor" rug and also a great value for the size. However, the backing is not properly designed to allow the rug to breath and dry out after a rain. This rug holds and retains water like a sponge. It holds so much water that after a heavy rain, it will still be wet even after being in the sun for days. It has gotten to the point were if we want to enjoy our outdoor space, we have to plan ahead and use our indoor carpet cleaner to help suck up the water. The carpet cleaner will suck up literally gallons of water! After that the rug will generally dry in a short amount of time. We've had multiple outdoor rugs in this area before and never had an issue with drying or water retention. The rubber backing does not allow this rug to breath/dry at all!
This rug holds water better than most sponges! It is on my concrete patio and I love the look, but when it rains water does not come out of the rug! The concrete around it will dry but I have to use a squeegee with great muscle involvement to get water to flows from it. Holding water here in Atlanta where we get lots of rain and its quite warm, means it gets smelly quickly. Will have to throw it away by spring.
I purchased this rug for our screened porch and needed it to tie together our steel blue house color with some recently purchased nearly lime green furniture. This rug works perfectly! It is also very soft and thicker than I expected, so spending time on the porch in my bare feet is a joy! The rug was bigger than I expected, so I had to roll under one side (which I thought was a better option than sending it back!) I am very pleased.

The color is much darker. Instead of blue and green it is tourquoise and yellow. Also the rug is light overall with a very dark navy or black border I was not expecting. Also wasn't expecting the diamond shapes to be so large. Does not have a tight pattern. If it wasn't such a good price I'd send it back.

I love this rug. We have it in a screened in porch and it had a few rains storms test it...it has dried out nicely and you can't tell its been through the elements a few times. You can't beat the price and it came within 4 days! I always get compliments on it because of the unique, modern pattern and colors. I would definitely recommend it and have been very happy with it so far.
This is a nice quality rug, but it should only be used indoors or on an enclosed porch/deck. The rug does not drain at all! If I forget to cover it when it rains, I have to remove all of the deck furniture and hang the rug. The water literally pours out of it. The colors are vibrant and the rug has a plush feel. If I had purchased it for indoor use, I would have rated it higher. As an outdoor rug, I can only give it 2 stars.
This is perfect for our cabana. The quality is definitely for the outdoors and the stitching around the edges is a different blue shade. This is very turquoise on the blue which was a little off what I was looking for. Still very comfy on your bare feet.
