Very happy with this rug although it took 3 tries to get the correct color I ordered - Grey.Read More
I loved the look of this rug and bought it about 3 years ago for our entryway. Since it's billed as an "indoor / outdoor" rug, I figured it would withstand the high traffic area plus our dog and cat. When we first unrolled it, it was perfect. But then after a few weeks, the black strips began to pill and then eventually pull - the only way to fix it was to cut off each individual string with scissors. Every time I vaccumed, it got worse. We still have it in the same place, but I really hate it now. I'm hesitant to purchase another rug for the area though since I did lots of research before I bought this one. It really is poor quality and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. DO NOT buy unless you're going to put it in a very low traffic room. Perhaps an office would be fine - but it's definitely NOT indoor / outdoor. I can't even imagine putting this outdoor. This is the second OS rug I've purchased - the first one is fabulous but is 100% wool rather than synthetic, so perhaps that's the biggest difference. Also - like another reviewer mentioned, the white stripes are a bit more raised than the black, so when you vacuum, you have to go with the zigs and the zags in order to be effective. Such a headache.Read More
I like the look of this rug but I have two dogs and it is a pain to vacuum! The white sections are slightly raised and so when I vacuum I have to vacuum with the zig zags to try and get the dog hair off of the rug. I am never able to get all the dog hair off even though I vacuum daily. I think this rug would be best in a low traffic, no pet area.Read More
Horrible experience with this website. They sent the wrong rug which looked nothing like this and was the wrong size. That was after they lost the initial order in the first place. I will never order from this site again. This was the second time out of 3x's ordering from this site that they sent me the wrong item.Read More
Wanted a focal point and this Is perfect. Will go with any color walls, drapes, pillows, sofa whatever. Haven't had to clean it yet, will review later.Read More
I love this rug! The color and pattern are perfect for our rather monocromotic, neutral dining room. The quality is great and it is easy to vacuum given that I'm using it under the dining room table. I've gotten so many compliments on it already. Now, I've only had it about 6 weeks, so I can't speak to how it will hold up, but so far so good. This is beautiful rug and quality is great! As usual...shipping from overstock was fast and easy and without no issue!! Thank you Overstock!Read More
I have been looking for a nice chevron rug for quite some time. I didn't want something that was jute or anything that looked cheap. Most of the quality chevron rugs are super expensive. I chose this one because it received so many positive reviews. The cream color is very light so it can easily pass for white just as long as you are not pairing it with stark white furniture. It's currently is located in a high traffic area and so far it's held up well. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.Read More
We were looking for a grey rug for our living room and thought the light grey would be perfect. To begin with, the rug that we received looked more like the charcoal option than the light grey we had ordered. In any case, it still looked good, but within a few days of minimal use, the rug started coming undone in multiple spots. It's a pretty rug, but it's horrible quality. I would return it if packaging and shipping a giant rug wasn't such a hassle.Read More
I shopped around for a while trying to find a reasonable priced chevron rug for my living room, before settling on this one. I havent laid it out yet competely, as i'm waiting for my new furniture to arrive before i put it in its new home. But I did unroll it to check the look/color, and i think it looks much more expensive than it was. All in all, i think its a good purchase and cant wait to start using it!!Read More

I don't think this should be used outside. I wouldn't even recommend using it inside - honestly - unless it's a room that's hardly used.
