I was so excited when I saw this bright cheerful rug on the site & read the great reviews. I couldn't wait for it to come! Boy was I ever disappointed! I couldn't get it out of my house & returned fast enough! What arrived was hideous, dark & dirty looking & smelled. I was afraid it might even have bugs in it! Definitely not the bright colorful & cheerful rug shown online. The rug appeared as if it was put together with torn, substandard scraps of filthy leather & it felt terrible to stand on. I really don't even want to give it one star! This is my first disappointing product from Overstock, as I generally love their merchandise.

I loved the idea for the rug. It was to fit in my new office and needed a fun, quirky rug that was bright as it's a north facing room and oak hardwood floors. The leather strap idea with the colors as shown in the images online is still a great concept but was disappointed with the result. The 6' round rug I received had more browns and blacks in it than the whites/turquoise/pinks/yellows in the picture and was darker than needed. The straps were thick and the overall rug was messier than I expected; I know Shag you'd think it was messy look but it just looked bad. I even moved it to another location in the house with lots of windows and looked better, but still sitting on hardwood floors, is not ideal. The rug is being returned today:( IF it had the colors as shown I would have dealt with the thick straps, etc. for the fun, unique styling of the rug.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The bright colors in the multiple images is NOT the case in the actual product
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The leather straps are thicker and bulkier than I expected and should be used for a low traffic area as the straps tend to loosen effortlessly...
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The colors and thickness of the straps are the biggest issue I have with this rug.
This was made in India & I hope the person making it had some fun in creating a craft so beautifully made. It is PERFECT for my funky styled decor!!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. All leather. New car smell ;)
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Completely accurate
I really wish I had read all of the reviews before I bought this rug. It was so cute online and matched my décor perfectly so I could not wait to get it. When I opened it, it stunk up my house. I even let it sit a few days to air out and nothing has changed. On top of that it doesn't look like the picture at all. The strips of leather a very wide and thick and are very long and far apart, when I opened it and rolled out the rug, about 15 pieces came out and I figured it was just from shipping and looses ends but every day more pieces came off and upon further inspection, this rug is very poorly crafted, I even found a strip of paper sew in it as a piece of "leather". Not to mention the colors are way off from what are shown. Sadly I have initiated my return of this item. Not happy at all, now if I could get the actual rug shown I would be THRILLED! Guess next time I'll read the reviews first.
Like the other reviews state the color isn't like the picture. I like the rug it's more black and maroon that the light tan shown in the picture. It does have lots of other colors so it's not a total loss. It also doesn't look as full as he picture. Oh and the smell is strong but totally a leather smell. Hopefully it will go away soon.
if you want the rug that is shown in the picture, this rug is not for you. the picture shows pastel colors and the actual colors are much darker. I am returning the rug. Very disappointed when I saw what arrived. I'm sure the quality is good, but the colors are just not what I thought I would be getting.
I just received this rug last evening and it was a great disappointment. I had a leather shag for almost 10 years and it was time to replace it. The colors of the rug that I received are not even close to what they advertise. The on-line picture shows a very nice pastel warm colored rug. What I received is something much darker with spikes of NEON (!!!) greens and oranges. The reason I am rating the overall value and the style of this product as poor is because the color is the first and foremost criteria when you chose a rug, and for this one the color was NOT what I chose and not what is advertised. I will return it.
It looked NOTHING like the picture. The pieces were long and 95% dark and gray. About every 6" there was a neon yellow or pink piece sewn in. The smell was awful. We had only unrolled it about 2' before we knew it was going back. I'm really sad, because I loved the picture. It would have been perfect. From now on I will pay much more attention to negative reviews.
The picture and the actual color of the rug I received is TOTALLY different. It's unfortunate because the rug I received is DARK, DARK, DARK. I will not return it as it is too much of a pain. I was going to order the largest one and I am so happy I just went with the runner.
I have ordered a lot from Overstock. This is the first time I have returned something for quality. I would have been embarrassed to send this piece of junk out. I have seen "leather shag". This was a woven rug of leather, with odd pieces of leather poked into the main part of the rug to make it a "shag'. They were falling out. The rug was the most uncomfortable thing to walk on. It was such a poor piece of work, I was shocked. And I sure don't think I should have to pay for the return.
This is a rug whose concept was better on paper than in real life. I will concede to ignoring previous reviews in favor of believing mine would be better. It wasn't. The rug off-gassed a horrid odor that was one part leather, one part barnyard, and it did not dissipate with time. The strips of leather and suede comprising the shag were five and six inches in length, and tenuously attached. In fact, the rug shed many of its leather strips as it was extricated from its three-bag shipping wrapper. While I understand these rugs are made with available materials that likely change from rug to rug, one would expect the color to be at least similar to the descriptive photograph. Rather than a lovely array of pastels, mine was dark and quite the departure from the decor it was intended to complement. Deciding to return it was easy. Getting it back inside it's three bag-within-a-bag shipping wrapper was an exercise in utter frustration. It is not a task one should tackle alone. Were the strips a little shorter, the construction more robust, the color more consistent, and the odor problem solved, this would be a lovely rug. In its current iteration, spare yourself the trouble.
Complaints I read in the past included things like the smell (which goes away after about a month); the color (yes, it's darker then the photos appear) and the workmanship (loose pieces) are negated by the uniqueness of the piece. I absolutely love it and would order another in a minute. Everyone who sees it compliments me on it. If you want soft and fluffy, this isn't the piece for you. If you want unusual or funky, you will definitely be happy. I'm saving the loose scraps and may sew them in some day.
I absolutely loved the weight of this rug-it is heavier than it looks and feels very rich and luxurious. It is the perfect finishing touch to my teenager's bedroom and the rainbow coloring pulls together everything else we have done to this area. Very updated, fresh and bohemian!
