I was a little hesitant about ordering this rug because the trim color looked almost brown in the photo. After receiving the rug, I was so happy that the trim is more of a burgundy color and matched my curtains perfectly!. Also, this is my very first Seagrass rug so I was a little unsure if I would like it. I LOVE it! Not only is it much thicker than I imagined, it ties together my caribbean inspired dining room perfectly. There is a faint seagrass smell that I'm sure will go away after a few days. The carpet laid beautifully and isn't bubbling or curling at all. The only thing that I didn't take into consideration was the fact that my cat thinks it's just a giant scratching pad for her.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No
- How is the quality of the product? Great!
Other reviewers complained about the smell. Well, nothing smells in dry Cali air. Ethan Allen is selling the exact same rug it seems for five times the price. It looks great in our cottage-style living room. Cat resistant also. Cat loves to scratch it but fibers don't break at all
One caveat: it is not cotton canvas backed, as stated. It has a felt-like backing with little dots of plastic. I have to get canvas to go underneath so it doesn't damage my engineered wood French oak floors. I decided to deal with it rather than ship it back because I would have to get help to repackage. Otherwise, it's a good value, & looks really nice in my dining room. It smelled like hay for a couple of weeks. Not unpleasant, just hay-like, but that has now dissipated.
