    • ****

      I dearly love this rug and what the abundance of color does for my livingroom. However, as soon as I put it in place, I noticed that the (color) threads came out of the rug very easily. I am in a difficult position of knowing just how to clean it. If I vaccuum it, it pulls the threads out more. That is a real design flaw. I don't want to return it, I haven't found any other rug that I wanted this much for the place it occupies in our home, but this is something any potential buyer should consider.

      Worst carpet I have ever purchased. The Burst designs are individual ribbons which pull and fray, when being vacuumed. I am 75 years old, I cannot remember when I have purchased anything this disappointing, I am on my hands and knees to cut fraying strings every day. Without a doubt, I would not recommend this rug!!!!!!!

    • Not easy care at all and looks worn fast! cannot just vacuum this rung!!! doing so pulls the silk ribbons loose so you have to get down on your hands and knees and carelly vacuum around and in between all the starbursts... Its not an easy keeper nor does it hold up well in high traffic rooms like family rooms. It looks pretty when you first put it down but looks worn after only a few months. I don'r even have kids and it's a real pain to care for!

    • Nice and thick wool rug that adds warmth

      This rug is well made with thich wool, which has a nice and comfortable touch. The colors are exactly as shown in the picture. The starbursts are vibrant which add warmth to your room. Dark brown and red/orange/biege provide a good contrast. I noticed there are other comments on the startbursts being made of other material, which does not bother me, since I am not using it for a high traffic area. For the quality and price, you can't resist this rug.

    • Don't do it!!

      I bought this rug a year ago and let me say it was the worst purchase ever!! It sheds constantly (little brown balls EVERYWHERE) and you can't vacuum over the sunburst because it pulls them and you end of cutting them with scissors. Because it's such a hassle to maintain I don't vacuum it often at all and when I do my husband jokingly says "So how long do you think it will take to groom the pet today." BUYER BEWARE. I recently found a rug to replace it. I didn't send it back b/c the shipping and handling was OUTRAGEOUS.

    • I don't know what to think

      I was so excited to find a carpet I really liked online. But picture perfect is not real life perfect. First of all, the carpet is not made in New Zeland! It is made in India. I couldn't find any note on it noting that it was handmade. The brown part of carpet is made of wool, but the flowers are made of ~1/3in wide synthetic twine (I was so upset when I saw it because they make the carpet look cheepish!) and this twine is kind of sharp when you walk barefeet on it. Be careful not to pull it because it comes out really effortless. I think, for the quality of it, it is overpriced. The only reason I am not returning it is the hassle of returning it. It weighs 62lbs., so the shipping by UPS or FedEx will cost me at least another $xx...

    • Chic and Thrifty

      This is my third rug I've purchased from Overstock. I will continue to outfit my house with items from Overstock as this website has the best prices for very high end merchandise. This rug is for sure a high end piece of art. The brown is a true chocolate color and the "star bursts" are made from a satin type of ribbon. I have noticed that when I vacuumed the rug, some of the "ribbon" bursts will start to unravel and fray a bit. However, I just clip the unraveled part of the ribbon bursts with scissors. This rug is very textured and even when the ribbons fray and become more "fuzzy" looking, it only adds to the textural nature of the rug. Overall, it is an incredible value and everyone who has come to my house is drawn to the rug and how incredible it looks. By the way, it feels really good under food and almost "massages" your feet and is super comfortable!

    • Not impressed

      Rug arrived within the same week that I ordered it, in good condition. I do not believe that the rug looks as good in person as it does online. As mention by others you cannot just run your vaccum cleaner over it, you really have to get down there on your hands and knees with one of the attachments. The brown part of the rug is everywhere, all over my hardwood floors and my sofa. Although I did keep the rug, I am currently looking for another to replace it. I would not recommend the purchase of the rug.

    • Worth it!

      I am and interior designer and have been searching for a rug that would make a statement in my living area and this was the perfect choice. Others have mentioned that it is like a piece of artwork on the floor and they are correct. Both my husband and I were impressed with the quality of the rug and after searching everywhere the price could not be beaten. The background is a rich chocolate with the bursts being red, terracotta and cream. The burst are actually made of a different yarn and are cut higher to make it raised. Others have said that they though design was ribbon and above the rug, but it is not. You will get some shedding from this rug as it is tufted, which means that the yarn is glued to the backing. All tufted rugs shed to some degree. All in all, well worth the money.

    • There are two different rugs in the photos. One has a medium brown background, the other a deep cocoa background. Which rug is this? Also, some descriptions for the SOho burst rugs show a cotton backing, others show a nonskid. Which backing does this one have? Thank you.

      • Hello seadawg, this rug has more of a brown background. This rug has a non skid backing. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • what is the proper cleaning method for this rug?

      • Hello susiensunnyaz, we recommend to turn your vacuums beater bar off when vacuuming to protect the pattern of the rug. When needed you can spot clean spills or stains. Professional cleaning is recommended yearly, or as needed. Have a great day!
