I needed a neutral rug for a short hallway that gets a LOT of traffic. This area rug has been perfect for that. The grey is just the right color, the sisal is durable and has not shown any wear after many months of heavy traffic, and the backing keeps the rug from slipping; it stays firmly in place. Best thing is that it doesn't really show any pet hair or dirt between vacuuming. Not really soft under bare feet, but that is not an issue for us, as it's a hall way rug.
We use two of these in hallways. They lay flat which is important because at our age rugs are deemed a falling hazard. They are easily vacuumed and do not appear to shed. I like the rubber backing so they do not wander. Color is muted and unobtrusive enhancing our new laminate floors.
i bought this as a replacement for the same rug i purchased 2 years ago- that one was awesome and i love it. But after a lot of construction in our house i wanted to start fresh so i bought a replacment. The replacement is nothing like the original- this one has fibers sticking out that dig into the soles of your feet. I will be returning and looking for a new one.
This rug is extremely durable but if you have to hose it down (we have two and they are used inside the doors to the pool that naturally have heavy traffic with wet kids and dogs) the color of the jute darkens a bit. I will end up buying more of these do to the clean look, being easy to clean, and durability. This rig is jute and therefore not "soft".
This rug size is perfect for putting in front of sliding glass doors to the outside. It has a bit of a rough surface (not good for bare feet) which is excellent for grabbing dirt and leaves from bottom of shoes. The dogs have no problem laying around on it, so it's not too rough. It catches alot, but it doesn't show all the dirt and dog hair, so I love it!
I have this rug in a square one at my condo in place and I got the runner for another entry. It requires no pad because it does not slip. I use it at entryways where we remove our shoes. It never shows dirt or tracking and vacuums nicely, as well. I highly recommend it. Overstock is quick to ship...
