It was love at first sight when I found this rug online. It perfectly matched my new decor and was the perfect size for the space. However, I expected it to be bound on the edges, and it is not. Within a couple of days, I started finding little fluffs of fibers that were fraying from the rug. Also, I couldn't tell from the pictures, but the pattern is highly textured and high heels tend to catch it and pull the fibers. After 2 weeks, I had to sit on the rug with a pair of scissors and give it a "haircut". This has happened with light-to-medium foot traffic and no pets. Hope it helps.
it was a great rug in the beginning but after about 6 months the ribbons start to frey if you vacuum it more than once a week, I would recommend taking it out and shaking it out versus vacuuming it so it will last long, I did replace it with the same rug and shook it out and did not vacuum It and it looks brand new, NOT recommended for high traffic areas though i.e kitchen. hope this helps
I liked the style and really thought that this rug would work almost as an art statement. I read the reviews and saw that they were mixed. However, the quality just isn't there on this rug. You can see the white backing through the pile. The color splashes, as another reviewer pointed out, are rayon ribbons which on my rug (just out of the packaging) had already started to unravel. I really like the design and was going to hang this rug on a brick fireplace, but even then you could tell that it wasn't a quality rug worth hanging. The good news is it was easy to send back.
I received the rug in only a few days. I was very happy when I unrolled it. The quality is exceptional- very thick and plush, very well made, and heavy for it's size. The colors are vibrant. Don't think twice about this purchase, you won't be sorry! The price here at Overstock is much less than at other sites for the same rug. An excellent purchase
This rug arrived yesterday and I was surprised to find that the rug's "sunbursts" are open looms. If you're not expecting this, it can be a little off-putting. I'm trying to live with it for a week or so then decide whether or not to return it. It certainly doesn't look exactly like the picture.
When people come to my house, everyone compliments it. Another reviewer mentioned the ribbons come off easily, so I normally vacuum the dark section and use a lint brush near the ribbons. This is not a problem for me, but if I had kids or a cat, this might be a problem.
