This rug was on sale... really on sale! I was looking for something for our living room floor. My husband loved the pattern and I loved the colors. I happen to love Safavieh rugs. It is true to the picture shown! We love it and we really loved the price! Since I tend to change my décor every few years, I wanted something that I didn't spend a lot of money on. Price, style and quality were on the top of our list. This lovely rug fit ticked all the boxes!
The rug looks great with colors true to the description and it's soft underfoot. I have it in the bedroom and thought that after a week airing out in the dining room it was ready to go in the bedroom. The odor was so overpowering, I had to open the room and vent it for three days. After two weeks, it still has a lingering odor but it is tolerable now.
The rug is pretty and rolled out nicely for the price. It looks very nice in my bedroom. My only issue is the odor. It had a very strong smell when we opened it. We layed it outside on our picnic table in the sunshine for a day. That helped, but it didn't go away totally. We have been leaving our bedroom windows open. After 3 weeks, it is finally beginning to subside. (we have been sleeping in another bedroom in the meantime)
This rug is so thin you can feel the tile under it. The weave is loose and the colors are too sharp - it seems to blind you when you walk into the room. We are keeping it because it is in our office with the black furniture and couch and compliments the room. And we don't go in there too much so the comfort is not as much of an issue.
I searched and searched for the perfect rug and finally found it with this one. I will say in the past I have spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on one rug. I have two large dogs and both went through puppy stages with these expensive rugs. So I went with a cheaper rug but I must say this one is my favorite. It is sooooo soft, doesn't shed like wool rugs do, vacuums beautiful and doesn't show any dog hair or dirt. I have a white and black dog! It is thin so I used an overstock Mohawk home supreme felted dual rug pad and it makes a world of difference. I loved this rug so much I bought the square rug for under the table and for the sliding door. It is more silver and black than grey and black but looks wonderful with my brown leather sectional.
The rug is nice & looks good in the den but the smell it had was very strong. I contacted Overstock & told them about it, asking if the smell would go away. All I got was we are sorry do you want to return it. I did not want the expense to return the rug but wanted a answer. She let me know a specialist would get back to me in 1-2 days. Never heard from them again-not pleased with this one. I will say after this much time the rug is loosing some of the smell. Hope the smell will go away in time.
