I bought this rug as a happy new home gift for my partner. We really liked a similar rug at Home Depot, but it wasn't the time for it. Price here on Overstock was better. The real hook for us is the dimensionaliity This isn't a printed rug with straight edges, it has varying heights for the stones and background, as well as edges that follow the stone pattern. Great rug for a home with lots of natural elements. Probably good if you want to bring the outdoors indoors. Partner does call it his Bedrock rug.

I put our rug in the front hall over a plank tile floor for the winter months. Feels like you just stepped onto a beach in Maine. Nice contrast to other traditional rugs which are missing the personality and life this rug gives.

Purchased this area rug for our living room floor which has dark walnut wood floor finish. It provides a nice contrast. The only drawback is that I find this rug to shed quite a bit. When I use my Dyson DC25 to vacuum this rug, it fills up the whole container every time. I had a similar area rug which shed as much, so I only foresee this rug lasting about 2yrs.

I ordered the 5x8 sized rug. The rocks are quite a bit bigger than I was expecting - like anywhere from 5" to 12" across, and the space between the rocks is wider than expected - but it is very good quality and looks great. The only other thing I hadn't noticed in the picture is that the edge of the rug actually follows the rock shapes - so it has sort of a scalloped edge. I think it's cool, but if you were putting it up against a wall it might look weird. And you'd probably want a smaller rug mat underneath if you had one, as a standard 5x8 would show at the edges. All in all impressed by the quality of this rug at the price.
You should be aware that this rug is more brown than the advertised grey, but was worth keeping! The irregular edges and amazing construction is high end. This rug is in my office with rustic finishes and adds just the right amount of interest. Buy this rug, you won't be disappointed.
I had this rug on my wishlist for a year before finally splurging. I really, really loved the look and wanted it. But I am so let down. Although it is a beautiful design, it sheds like crazy. I have to vacuum it multiple times per week. Really, I have never had a rug that shed like this. I give it two stars only because I really like the look. But the work is not worth it, and at some point, there will be no fiber left to the thing. Save your money.
cute!!!! soft but does shed for a while after you put it down. I bought dark grey but the stones are all beige and brown with dark brown center but I was pleasantly surprised as the brown looked better than grey would have. I assume the brown one has green and blue from the pic, but I have no idea if it looks anything like it.
I love this rug! I was really nervous about buying it--I thought it might look dinosaur-y rather than nature-y and fun. It actually turned out to be very cool. It's a lot softer than I was expecting--the "rocks" are actually tufted. I got the grey version and it has more brown tones than grey overall, but the color scheme works nicely. Again, it's something different--it definitely becomes the center of attention in a room. But I think it's great!
Before I bought this carpet I read the reviews and people mentioned that this rug sheds, but is sounded like it was normal shedding for a wool carpet. But it's not. I've had wool carpets before. This rug sheds every hour. You can clean it, and within an hour it looks like a mess since it sheds so much wool. This rug is made in India, and the quality is low as can be the case with many products from India. My recommendation: don't buy this rug.
