Overall, we're very happy with this rug. The quality is better than expected and certainly a value for its price. Two points were note: the color is darker than my screen displays. The grey weave is much closer in value to the black border. From a distance, this rug appears black. In fact, we have a matching all-black version in the adjoining room and it's difficult to tell them apart. Also, the was a major imperfection running through the center of the rug. One distinctly lighter grey fiber runs half way down the center and is a bit of an eye-sore. We decided not to send it back because our dining room table obscures the imperfection. We tend to buy this type of inexpensive rug knowing that a cat, dog, or kid will ultimately destroy it, so in this instance we were more forgiving of its defect. While the rug is lovely, of good quality and worth the $$$, my hunch is that it ended up at Overstock because the manufacturer was aware it was imperfect.
We use our Safavieh rug under our dining room table. It is soft enough for our bare feet, but extremely durable. Food particles wipe and sweep up without a problem. The color is great and true to what is pictured on the computer screen (I know that there was some debate about this in recent posts/reviews). We have not had any problems with the rug in our short time owning it. So far it is worth every penny.
The carpet looks exactly like the picture. It is well made and lays flat. I say that because I ordered a lesser quality from Overstock that never did lay flat on the floor. I use this carpet under a 5 x 8 carpet and it looks great. I think this rug is actually bigger than 8 x 10. I think it may be a 9 x 10. The part of the carpet that is walked on does certainly hang on to dog fur, so I would probably need to vacuum it A LOT if it used alone.
These rugs look wonderful in my loft. The consistency of color and texture is terrific and they arrived with no wrinkles, rolled up on a heavy cardboard tube. Exc. price for a great look.
