This is a beautiful rug that feels great, too. The "rust" color is more of an orange, so beware. The brown background is a deep chocolate brown, and the starburst are a different texture than the background. It is not shedding at all, and looks like it costs thousands of dollars. If only the other rug I ordered from O was as nice and accurately portrayed on their site . . .
We bought this rug for our bedroom, as a companion to the lighter color Handmade Soho Beige Burst rug which we hope to have one day in our living room. That rug sold out so we received this one first. We liked it well enough, it is very well made, no shedding to speak of (although it has "Made in India" tags all over it, no sign of new Zealand.) The more we looked at it, the more we liked it. The more we stared and absorbed it in, the more we loved it. Although orange is not a color I would have thought of adding to our decorative palette, I must say the results are stunning. We have beige walls, dark wood furniture and wood floors. When we ordered the rug, we figured the bed would cover most of the color in this rug. Now we have rearranged our bedroom so more of the rug can be seen. In honor of our new beloved rug, we made an accent wall in the bedroom, (we used the smallest wall) "sunset glow," a red-orange paint from the True Value "simply red" line, which is the perfect blend of the red and orange bursts. Wow, what a great change! Thank you overstock.com!
This rug has raised cheap synthetic yarn for the pattern in a completely different material than the rest of the rug. It is distracting a cheap looking and impossible to see from the pictures.

Gorgeous! Just purchased and took a leap of faith after reading all reviews BUT I have it in a formal DR which is not used often.I am using a lint brush to clean & it looks amazing. No problems so far. I am thinking of purchasing another one for my kitchen table but don't know if it will hold up nicely.... Would like to hear from others if they have used it in the kitchen eating area .
I knew of the ribbon problem before I purchased the rug. I never expected we were going to lose as many ribbons considering we are super careful not to walk on it. There are no children, no pets. I wish the manufacturer would give some advice on this problem.
The colors in this rug are exactly what I wanted how they are coming out. Th e colors are made into the rug but threaded ribbon and the ribbons continue to come out. I already can see bald places and am afraid before long the orange white and red colors will be gone and I will be left with a plan rug.
I love the look of this carpet and overall, after a year, it's still looking good. The brown background on this rug looks lighter in the pics. It's actually a consistent, dark brown. Additionally, the sunbursts are made with very thick pieces of ribbon which pull out easily. They are raised 3/8" off the background fibers and have a strong texture.
Not for high traffic areas. If you vacuum with the brush on, the decoration pulls out and wraps around the brush on the vacuum. However, if you turn the brush off, it does not vacuum well. The chocolate brown background shows everything. Was not a good choice with dogs.
The size and thickness of the rug is nice and that's about it. This rug sheds so bad!! Not only does the chocolate part of the rug stay on your clothes, socks and everything else leaving little balls of carpet everywhere, the flower design leaves remnants too. The flowers are small satin like pieces of fabric strategically placed. I thought it was really pretty until those fabric pieces started showing up across my floor too. Any infant or toddler will have a field day with this! It's definitely not safe so watch your littles one playing on this rug. I don't recommend this rug to anyone. It's definitely not meant for a high traffic area. I have the rug in my family room but why else would one buy a rug of this size? If it wasn't nearly 80lbs I'd roll it up and send it back!! Your funds are better spent elsewhere.
i had the same rug in smaller sizes and was pleased to see the larger rug was available. Very pleased with product and delivery.
