Our Victorian Shingle style house has a character all its own, which we have striven to maintain. This rug is just perfect. It looks much better "in person" than it does in the photographs online. There is a wide range of colors, and they all coordinate with each other. Some of the photos make the design appear blurred and indistinct, but they are not really like that. The design is more detailed than the photos indicate. It goes well with a brown leather chair, a blue one, the carpet underneath it, the drapes, and the wood in the room. Having all those colors in the rug brings all the items in the room into harmony, grounding them all. We have other oriental style rugs as well as this one. One has fringe on the ends- it has not worn well, and just looks old and messy. I am happy that this new one does not have any fringe. Another point of comparison is the backing. Our older ones have much thinner fabric on the back; this one has a very strong, tightly woven backing, hemmed with sturdy, snug stitches. There is a huge difference between them. The pile on this rug is somewhat shorter than our older ones, but I believe that it is more dense, and in no way does it detract from the beauty or quality. I have tried to mention things that cannot be learned from just seeing the pictures, so that this review may prove genuinely helpful.
The rug arrived promptly and I was very pleased with the colors, the thickness of the rug. It laid down well and the colors were actually better than the picture online. More muted and blended. The rug does shed but I have had many wool rugs over the years and they all have shed when first purchased. This will slow up over time. I am very pleased with the rug. The price was exceptional for the quality and the size of the rug.
This rug was quite a find!! Great quality. Thick & durable. You will be vacuuming daily for 2 weeks. Description was very accurate, except the border was a deep navy, not black. The colors are beautiful and rich. Really gives a classy pop to a neutral room. So many options of accent colors to bring out. Though the red is bordering on a rust, and I would've preferred a cranberry red. The brown is a very milky chocolate. Overall, great find for a great price.
I recently re-decorated my living room and was looking for an area rug that would complement the new décor as well as be cost effective. This rug fulfilled both of these requirements. I love the colors and design . The size is perfect for the area. However, I have one complaint. The rug is wool and sheds. I vacuum it at least 2-3 times a week, not because it shows dirt, but because it sheds so much. If you wear anything dark colored and sit on the floor (as we do when we play with our grandchildren) you will be covered in short woolen hairs. I have had the rug for several months now and had hoped the shedding would stop. It has not, and if there is some way to stop it, I would love to know.
THICK AND SUBSTANTIAL!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I AM NOT EVEN USING A RUG MAT, IT IS SO HEAVY THERE IS NO NEED.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? VERY WELL
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. VERY THICK
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I THOUGHT THE BORDER WAS BLACK, BUT IT IS A VERY DARK BLUE - STILL BEAUTIFUL.
Expected what was pictured - received an overall burgundy rug that is at least three times darker than expected. It sort of sucks the light out of the room. Clearly not the rug I ordered, so be aware you might not get what you order. It's still pretty and good quality so we will keep it because it's big and heavy and not worth the hassle to return, but now something we will have to get used to instead of love at first sight. I recommend it because of the nice quality and value for the money, but keep in mind it might not be the same as pictured. How can you trust the image if it's so clearly inaccurate? Customer service cannot help because they rely on what is shown, not the actual product, although they offered a full refund. We chose to keep it.
the rug is true to size, deep pile, vibrant colors. It is very soft under and comfortable under foot.

First thing I noticed unrolling the rug was the rich color. Excellent backing material and perfect edges feel of quality. My wife and I debated what size, color, design and style rug for our new home that had previously had a Spanish style decor, but we have gone a different direction and the rug certainly adds everything we wanted. Wool rugs shed. It's a fact. This wool rug sheds. If you want a 'shedless' rug, get something else. We use a Dyson band vacuum and it does an excellent job. Our home now has a warm floor accent that put a special touch in the decor. You cannot get the color or feel of this rug with nylon or other artificial material, nor can you get the permanence of color and longevity of wool any place else.
