This rug is exactly what I wanted. The quality is excellent, and the color is really nice. As I was hoping, it seems that the photo is slightly "blued," making the border look bluer and the main area of the rug cooler in color than they actually are. That being said, it is still a cool-colored rug. The border is more of a dark slate/charcoal. The weave has a hint more gold than the picture indicates, but it is still the creamiest-colored jute or sisal rug that I've seen. It rolled out flat immediately with no shedding, no odor, and no need for a nonskid pad on hardwood. This kind of rug is definitely not soft, but it works perfectly for high traffic areas and households with pets because it does not show dirt and hair immediately and is really durable.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The border is less blue, and the the main area of the rug is warmer in color (both differences make it more attractive than the pic)
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very Good
I wanted a neutral sisal that was more on the cold tone than warm tone. This sisal is definitely neutral enough to go with every decor, even browns and earth tones. If you are looking for a pale grey rug fiber, this is NOT. It is however just as show in the image (more like the first two images) and described on the order receipt as "marble". To my eye, the base color is just a plain bleached out natural with grey heathering throughout. (My wording may be deceiving - it's exactly like what you see in picture #2). The border is a medium gray - maybe ever so slightly darker than what I see in the images. This is a beautiful, sturdy, and lovely-but-simple weave. There is a latex backing and after 2 weeks in a closed room there is still an odor, but I'm not concerned - I kno wit will dissipate. The great news is that it is a BREEZE to cut if you need to (using a carpet knife). I'm not a designer by any means, I did this out of necessity because the 9x12 was out of stock. I actually ended up getting TWO of these 6x9's abutting them together (EASILY took off the border at the seam and the raw edges matched up PERFECTLY), carpet taped them together, custom cut to fit the room and attached the border at the unique cuts using carpet tape - - you'd never know that it didn't come this way and looks like a fabulous wall to wall sisal with border! FABULOUSLY LUXURIOUS FIND, I highly recommend!
I like this rug a lot. It's pretty rough on your feet but we use it under our kitchen table so it isn't really walked on and is easy to vacuum. It also has a little odor - probably the natural fibers but I'm sure they will air out. Overall it's a nice rug and looks great. Happy with our purchase
I ordered this rug for a sitting room and it is lovley! Very durable yet sophisticated. We are happy with this purchase. We moved into a new house this summer and we have been very pleased with our purchases from Overstock. The trim around the edges is also nice! Thanks again Overstock!

We love this rug. We used to have a very old ll bean rug which served it's purpose but it was time for some upgrading/refreshing of the kitchen. It looks great under our wooden kitchen table. I vacuum right over the sisal and I haven't had any issues. Love it!!!
sisal rug! Using it under my dining room table and the size is perfect. Love the feel of sisal on my bare feet, but the "gratiness" is not for everyone (my daughter hates the feel). This was a perfect choice to anchor and accentuate my space. My rug has the gray border and looks great with my decor (muted greens, blues and grays).
