This is the Paris Shag Rug by Safavieh. I wasn't sure what to expect so I purchased the smallest size in ivory to check out color and texture before investing in huge version for living room. The rug is slippery as others have noted thickness is fine, it is fairly plush. Very little shedding. A rug pad underneath would make it softer under foot. Color is two tone yellowish cream, not milky ivory I was looking for, the nap and lighting can completely alter the look. I've had the rug a few weeks it still has not completely unrolled from shipping so it won't lay flat yet. I would not recommend this rug for room that gets much use like a living room. Even though this product wasn't what I hoped for I'm still a big fan of O.co!
If you are in the market for a rug....THIS has to be the one. I bought the rug to put at the end of the bed in my guest room. Won't get much traffic so the ivory color will work. First of all, the look of this rug is rich and luxurious. THEN....the feel! I would love to wrap myself up in the rug on a cold winter night....yes...it's that soft. Can go wrong with this one!
This is a beautiful shiny, silky rug. I would put a rug pad under it for a more cushy, plush feel. This would be great in a contemporary setting. A very modern look and feel to it. I bought the small rug so I can't answer to how it vacuums. I haven't experienced any shedding. I would guess that a larger rug would be very high maintenance, but worth the gorgeous look and feel of this rug.
