We've had this rug about a year and it is absolutely beautiful in our dining room. The quality is A-one. The picture online does not do justice to this rug. It's very rich looking and surpasses other area rugs that we have purchased at much higher prices "on sale" at area stores.
I purchased this rug about 11 months ago, and was happy with it up until yesterday. It is very attractive, although not very think, and it suited it's purpose perfectly. Yesterday, I was vacuuming the rug, and a long yarn caught the vacuum roller and pulled out of the rug for about 12 inches. I was so upset! To pay over *** dollars for a rug, only to have it fall apart in such a short time, is not worth the money. This was near a corner, and was an area that gets little to no foot traffic. Although I love the design, it is poor workmanship!
This rug is very pretty with warm colors, but the quality and workmenship is average at best. We are keeping our rug because returning such a large item is more than I choose to deal with, but will use it in a bedroom where our bed will cover most of it. Our plan was to use it in our family room in front of our couch, but I prefer a softer area rug of higher quality. I would highly recommend a rug pad or you can forget about buying this rug. I know this review may sound negative, but I know there are better quality wool rugs for sale on overstock because I purchased some that were unbelieveable in quality and was very soft to walk on.
