The rug looks great in my kitchen on my wood floor. It is not to light and not to dark and keeps my room looking crisp. There was no smell as I originally read- taking it out of the package there was an original scent that went away when it was unrolled and laid out. It is big enough that when my chairs are pulled out, the legs do not touch the floor. It is not soft nor is it scratchy on the feet.
This rug arrived prompt! I was able to take our of the packaging and roll right into place. It is soft and looks beautiful! The edges do not roll up, everything stays in place perfectly with the recommended item that goes under the rug.! This rug was a smart buy and great value for the money!
I wanted a round rug for the guest room and this is perfect. It's a natural fiber, so it does have an odor to it initially but after airing out for a week it's gone. It sweeps clean with a broom but the vacuum works on it well too. I have 8 cats all with their nails, and this has stood up great so far (3 months).
Needed a round rug under our kitchen table. I was uncertain about a natural fiber rug (afraid it would be rough). I was most pleasantly surprised how soft it turned out to be and really added a nice layer of interest to our kitchen. It did have an earthy smell upon unpacking, but that was gone after a day. I love it. If you are looking for a natural fiber rug, this won't disappoint.
This rug is soft to the touch, rolled out perfectly flat from day one, arrived in just three days, and was cheaper here than anywhere else! I could not be happier with it. It also vacuums well and does not shed at all that I have noticed, and it sits on a dark wood floor so I feel like I would have noticed any shedding. Both sides are the same so it could be flipped eventually if needed. I don't currently have a rug pad under it because it has furniture holding it in place. When it arrived, I cut open the wrapping to let it 'air out' a little overnight in the garage, but I really didn't notice any 'natural rug stink' from it even in the beginning. (I have had a sea grass rug before that smelled so dank that after a month I threw it out) This jute rug is great! I also have the 8'x 10' rectangle one and my review will be the same for it. Both are perfect, do not hesitate to buy these for that beachy modern feel and texture in your room!
Same rug as PB for a lot less! Jute does smell a bit when first opened but quickly goes away. I had another of these rugs that lasted for over 5 years. I washed that one with a hose on the driveway and it looked great when it dried - no spots.
Outstanding quality at a fantastic price. Sits perfectly flat on wood floor when unwrapped. Soft feel to the feet and appears durable. Paired this with the LE Phillippe reclaimed round 48" round chestnut colored table with hyacinth chairs for a great tropical look.
