The rug looks great in our living room! The color is a dark, rich brown with the ribbons being russet red, orange, and beige. When I unrolled it, only two hours passed until the entire rug lay flat and there are no curling corners. My cats LOVE to roll around on the rug, which is definitely a fur magnet. Taking the advice of others, I have not ran a vacuum over the rug for fear it'll loosen the little ribbons. I have, however, used the Pledge Fur Sweeper to get up most of the hair. That seems to work the best, but I'm bummed out because I can see little brown fibers coming out of the rug. Even when my white cat rolls around on the rug she will come off with little brown fibers in her fur. There are two ribbons that seem to have come loose already, so I just cut them off.I really like the rug, it's aesthetically pleasing, but it's a pain to clean. If you have pets make sure you have some time to devote to cleaning gently as not to disturb the quality of the workmanship. I've also found that gently taking a Dustbuster or working with the upholstery attachment from my vacuum can also help clean the rug. This product is recommended as long as you realize you'll need to put some work into the maintenance.
I bought this rug to pull my color theme together in my living room. I have a chocolate sectional and a deep red loveseat. This rug is amazing and it looks more incredible in person. The bursts of color are raised up higher than the chocolate base and it gives it an interesting textured look!
When I first got it and rolled it out I loved it, don't get me wrong I still love the look of it but did not expect the burst to made of ribbons, was expecting a carpet material. Anyway, I love the look but as you know ribbon is going to fray and I think when I vaccum it is pulling these ribbons causing them to fray and once ribbon starts to fray it is neverending. Overall, it is a beautiful well made rug. I have to vacuum often because of it being wool and it seems that everything sticks to it and with it being brown it shows. I can't recommend it because of the ribbon material and everytime I vacuum I cringe. Just make sure you keep your vacuum on the higher setting. sometimes I just use a sticky roller to get up any dust or hair. Good luck on your rug purchase.
I am absolutely in love with this rug! I have been on the hunt for an area rug to put in my tan walled, brown furnitured living room. I had color in mind, to bring the space together and brighten up the room, but was having a very hard time finding the right fit. Then I discovered this beautiful rug! I was a new customer to overstock.com and in general, somewhat skeptic of ordering an area rug online, without feeling or seeing it. Trust me, potential buyers, this rug will not dissapoint! It's crafted beautifully and is just the absolute right touch of color in my neutral room. Exactly what I was looking for. I have received only the best of compliments.
It is as good as it gets, makes a stunning statement for the entire room. Laid it over Ivory carpeting to define a conversational area, and it draws people to sit and admire it. The conversation always starts about the rug itself! Thanks again for the varied products you offer.
This rug is fabulous. We have received so many amazing comments from folks. They cannot believe the quality of the wool rug and the price we paid. We also bought the runner rug and the door mat rug because we were so thrilled. The pattern is spectacular - when people first see the rug they say "WOW!" . Enough said!
Absolutely beautiful - even more beautiful in person. Had friends over a few weeks ago and they each made a comment about how beautiful and unusual it is. However - be warned - this is NOT an ideal rug for a high traffic area. We have it set down in a "sitting area" with very low foot traffic. It is impossible to vacuum, so the less you need to, the longer you will have your sanity.
So first of all I must say that we picked this product because of the vibrant colors in it that go perfectly with the design in our living room. Upon receiving this rug we were pleased with the quality(thickness and weight) of it and the colors. Also the size was right and the price point was great. The only issue we are having is that some of the colorful threads have started coming out of the rug. We are hoping that this won't keep happening because that would make this purchase a total wash since the colorful threads in rug is why we picked it. So far it has only been a few threads that have come out. We are keeping an eye on it but so far I would recommend this product.
The design is very nice,but the workmanship is very bad!!!! When i unrolled the carpet there was several loose ribbons and when i ran my hands across more ribbons came out.Overstock was very helpful and understanding in the return of this items.
Purchased for college apt and it has had lots of traffic held up very well. Very true colors in picture great contemporary rug for the money. You have to be careful with the vacuum cleaner on the sunburst pattern as this is 3dimensional fibers or strands and they can be caught in the vaccum. Overall happy with the rug.
I really love the idea of this rug. The flower bursts are unique and give this rug a 3D effect. The only issue I have is the ribbon-like material the flowers are made of allow the ends to get ragged looking after running a vaccuum over them. In addition, the ribbons come out fairly easy. I think this rug is very well made otherwise. It's thick and the colors were perfect for my room. This rug is better suited for a lower traffic area and probably better wihout pets. I'm considering returning due to the above.
I have only had this rug a year but the ribbons have been coming out weekly. I would say it has lost about 50. It is in the room where my television is, and is only tread on by me and an occasional guest. I would say I watch tv about 4 days out of the week, so I walk on this rug maybe 30 times a week in slippers of flip flops. I find it odd that in a low traffic area it has not been able to withstand light movement. It also pills a lot. I am already wanting to replace it, so while I paid a good price, if it only lasts a year, it is not a good price. Rugs are meant to be walked on - they should not fall apart. Also, I vacuum with one of those slim dust buster on a stick situations, so the ribbons have not come loose from vacuuming. In addition to pilling I find that it attracts dirt which is tough to get out.
Beautiful, thick, soft rug ... You won't go wrong purchasing this one! It's like the rugs that sell for over $800, but at an affordable price.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors match the website colors perfectly! They are very rich.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug is thick and soft to walk on. We have one of these rugs, 5x8, in the foyer and a smaller one inside the back door. I get tons of compliments by anyone who enters our new home. The sunbursts are actually narrow pieces of material and are a little taller than the rug and are tightly secured even when vacuuming. A few came loose at first, but not anymore. Overall, this is a very quality, beautiful handmade rug and I highly recommend it!!.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfectly!
