Overall this runner looked the way I wanted it to, but upon opening it was really surprised by the smell ... natural sea grass wrapped in plastic for who knows how long was pretty aromatic. I let it air out - outside - for a day or two, then brought it in. It still had a smell, but after 2 weeks the smell is gone. Mind you, this isn't a rotten or even artificial smell. It's just a very potent dried grass smell.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was comprable.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good. I've only had it for 2 weeks so we will see how long it lasts.
This runner and the rug are perfect for our Lake Home application. We wanted durable and a natural relaxed vibe, and this does the trick. The only concern is there are a couple imperfections in the weave, but that is to be expected given the material involved. We love it and can run the vacuum over it with no issues.
Rug is as described and pictured. I suppose the only negative was that for some reason I thought it would be longer, but measuring at 6' you get what you order. Here's the beauty of seagrass: it's virtually stain free! I have the same brand rug under my kitchen table and with two not so tidy children I'm impressed with how it has held up. Looks like new and I've had it almost a year- and my daughter had a flu, um, mishap and I was able to just use water and clean that up!! Love this line, the pattern is appealing, too.
this rug is perfect! I bought to go in front of the french doors going out to the yard. We have 2 dogs and it helps cut down on the dirt they bring into the house. They seem to like it come in and lay on it. Has a nice backing to prevent from slipping on hardwoods. I have a chair on one side helping to uncurl the rug from shipping. Just perfect!
Am very happy with my purchase. There was a jute smell (not offensive) for a bit but it has faded. Perfect rug for our entry way. Great for high traffic -- wears well and still looks like new after a couple months of getting trampled on by visitors and our 2-year-old. Would definitely purchase again.
You better like it when you order it because Overstock wanted to charge me 1/3 of the sale price to return it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Low quality
I am using the rug. Seems to be decent quality but when it first came out of the package it smelled TERRIBLE! I had to leave it outside for several days to air it out before I brought it in the house. The weave is also more rustic or rough-looking than in the picture.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK but again, more rustic or rougher than appeared in picture.
A great rug, especially for the money. My only complaint is that it doesn't feel great on bare feet!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? fantastic
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
This runner was placed at the back entry of our home, and after only a short time, there are already a number of areas where the weave has come undone. While the sisal is ideal for the high traffic through this hallway, it's a bit disappointing that it hasn't been more resilient.
We used this rug in our mudroom after researching materials that are sturdy. It did smell funny once we got it but went away within a day. I read other reviews pertaining to this but it is because of the Seagrass that it is made from. With 4 kids and a dog this rug still looks great and its been a few months! It also really does repel water! Great purchase!
