This rug is beautiful and seems to be well made, BUT ... When it arrived, the outer wrap was abraded, although the inside heavy plastic was fully intact. As soon as I opened the inner packaging, I was overwhelmed with a mildew smell, and when I unrolled the rug I noticed gray spots around the center of the rug. In fairness, this is not an Overstock problem, and, despite the scraped up outer wrapping, I don't think UPS had much to do with it either. Having been a truck driver for a number of years, I would have to place the blame on the shipper - the desiccant package was ruptured, the cardboard tube the rug was wrapped around was damp, and the rug got funkier as I got closer to the roll. Overall, this is a beautiful rug and matches my jute-rug-on-cork-flooring theme; Overstock is cheerfully replacing the rug, and if it's not rotting when it arrives, I will be an incredibly happy customer. I have purchased thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from this company, and this is the first problem I have had - and it was handled promptly and professionally. Stuff happens, but if you like this rug, go ahead and buy it cuz I'll betcha the shipper doesn't make this mistake again.
I have a 42" round pub set with 4 22" deep chairs. At first I thought I needed a 7' rug but this 6' rug is perfect. It is large enough for the chairs to still be on it when pulled out to use. I looked at literally thousands of rugs online and searched every store I could find for a round rug. We have contemporary furnishings and I didn't want the oriental rug look. This rug is perfect! The colors are warm enough that it has character and is not bland at all but it blends with the furniture. The picture is very true to the colors. It is warm brown with flecks of gold and a bit of chocolate here and there. It is thicker than I thought it would be. I figured we would have to give it time to lay flat, no way, this baby practically hugged itself to my floor. Beautiful colors, very well made, tightly woven and I didn't have to pay more for it than for my dining set. LOVE IT!!! Thanks Overstock also for the three day turnaround, that was a pleasant surprise!

Am very disappointed with the quality and construction of this rug - it is literally coming apart in many places.; will contact Overstock to return.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. it does not lie flat and it is coming apart in several places with very little wear. It is in the kitchen but has no furniture on it and yet it is fraying all over.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty close except for how it would hold up
I do like this rug. It is not particularly thick, but it's not too thin either, and is what I expected. It works well under my kitchen nook table. I don't need a pad underneath it. It is soft and comfortable on bare feet. It laid down flat immediately out of the package. My only disappointment is with the color. It appeared paler and more wheat colored on my screen, which is what I hoped for. The real color is a bit darker,richer, and more golden: more like honey. It's hard to imagine returning this rug, as it is big and heavy, so I will use it until I find one in the right color, and then move this one to a different area in my home.
I was looking for a rug that would cover up some pulls that my dog did and also add a nice touch to the natural tones of our bedroom. I love the look of the natural fiber and it is also not rough on the feet that I was concerned it would be.
This rug was perfect. I was looking at Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs for the same thing, and they were triple the price! It's a great natural brown color. The stitching is exposed, and I worry the cats will be able to unravel it, but so far, no problems. Also, didn't have any weird smells like you read about for jute. Definitely would recommend this rug!
