Get this RUG! It's awesome! Such a great price! The rug looks very expensive, my friends were amazed on how much I spent. I got the brown one and it's sooo soft and it has a wonderful leather smell. I can't gush enough about this rug! I have it in my livingroom, over carpeted flooring and under a coffee table. It really makes the room look great! I am very pleased!!!
The rug is beautiful but the way it sheds i won't have a rug by Labor day. Also, it is not comfortable on your feet to walk on. Don't buy this rug. If you drop some on it it's like looking for a needle in a hay stack. I no idea how to clean it.
I do not like to say this, but, this rug was horrible! Perhaps it was just the 'one' that I received, but, I hated it. The quality was miserable and it looked as if it was made by someone with no concept of what it should be. I also did not like the fact that I had to pay to return this 'substandard' item. Too bad, because I do shop OStock frequently.
I've purchased from OS before and was always pleased with what I purchased, and even if I wasn't I could always be sure that returns wouldn't be a hassle. So after reading the reviews for the rug I purchased, I went ahead and ordered it with confidence. The reviews all said that the rug loses pieces of leather here and there but I never expected that my 8 month old grand daughter could sit on it and yank off handfuls of carpet! While I like it for the texture that it adds to a room, my husband likens it to fall leaves needing to be raked up. I knew, from the reviews, that cleaning the rug would be somewhat difficult as you have to hand vac it with an attachment but even cleaning it that way, I hear strands of leather being sucked up through the hose! At this rate I'll have a bald rug in no time! I can't recommend this rug to anyone........it's certainly not up to the same standards as in past purchases I've made through Overstock.com.Incidentally....I'd return it but the thing weighs over 85 lbs..
I have never even used this. I would like to sell it but wouldn't feel right because the quality is so poor and it hurts to walk on it due to the knotted leather. Smells awful.

I have had this rug in a 5x8 almost 2 years. It is wonderful! Everyone that comes in notices it and compliments it. I have it in front of a door that leads to our patio and pool area AND have dogs and cats AND grandchildren, so it has seen a lot of wear and still looks great. It loses some leather strips occasionally which worried me at first, but it has held up extremely well and still gets noticed because it looks great! The leather smell lasts 2-3 weeks and it is strong, but not unpleasant. It is a great rug and there is no way anyone would guess what it cost. We used the OS thick rug pad which works well with it. To clean you'll need to take outside and shake, but it's not something you do every week, especially with the thicker pad. LOVE IT!
I am very pleased with this rug. The color in the picture looks really washed out but in person the rug has multiple shades of beige and is more vibrant. I counted at least 10 different shades of beige tones in the rug. I put it in front of a taupe colored microfiber sectional in the den and it looks great. The texture of the rug also added to the look of the room.I read in some of the reviews that the smell of the leather is very strong and I have a sensitive sniffer so I thought it would bother me for a few weeks but I didn't think it had much oder at all.It does shed a little bit but most new rugs do so no big deal.
I thought a "premium leather rug" would be soft leather. Not so.....this rug is not suitable to walk on with bare feet or socks on. The leather ties in the rug hurt your feet. If you want it in an area you won't walk on, it would work. Some of the ties fell off as well.
I am very pleased with the color and construction of this rug. I feel it was an excellent value! There are some pieces that keep coming loose from the rug, but it isn't excessive - so even though some other reviews mentioned it, I don't feel like it is that big of a problem.
All my friends love my rug, one friend pointed out it looks like a pile of leaves. To state the color is beige is deceiving, it is more shades of tans. The leather and suede strips or not uniform in shape and size, appears to be leather leftovers use to make a rug. Not recommended with kids or pets.
So I've been decorating my apartment... Going for modern\/comfort look and OhEmGEE!! This Rug is the ultimate statement... if you are looking to show off and live in soft leather comfort, Buy this NOW NOW NOW! It does smell very strong, I just received yesterday 10.14.09. I hope it doesn't stain. It comes nicely packed/shipped... I previously bought a shaggy rug here on overstock and it came lose in a box, I was HORRIFIED. It looked like a teddy bear that died in my living room. I returned it and this was AMAZING... Its a great accent piece if you are doing color schemes of white/gray and beige. Good LUCK!!
