this rug is beautiful! the quality was even better than I expected. looks like a very expensive rug. other reviewers wrote about an odor to this rug - I detected no smell. highly recommend it if you are considering it. get it - you will not be disappointed!! BTW - never have written a review for a product....that is how pleased I was.
The pros: I liked the eye-catching design of this rug, and the fact that it was a thick, 100% wool construction. The rug had a good heft to it when unrolled in the space. Unfortunately, those are the only good things I can say about this product. Cons: I purchased this rug because the vibrant color (golden yellow with white highlights) looked so striking in the picture. Imagine my surprise when I unrolled this brand-new rug in my living room and noticed that the yellow was more of a muted/grungy mustard, and the bright white from the picture was actually a mottled grey. I'm puzzled by the color discrepancy - it almost looked dirty, as if it had at one point been bright white but someone had walked all over it with dirty shoes. I tried using a carpet shampooer with wool-safe cleaner to see if the color would even out and brighten, but to no avail. It also had an odor that several people likened to cat urine. And, during the carpet shampooing attempt, a lot of wool came out of the rug and collected into hairballs. Had to send it back (which, by the way, costs *** for UPS pickup even though the product was unsatisfactory). Would not recommend.
This rug is well worth the price, I placed it in my breakfast room and get so many comments on how beautiful it looks it the room. The rug is very plush and elegant looking, I did read some of the reviews on this rug and noted some of the comments about shedding and smell. Of course the run had the smell of the dyes used in the wool at first (like most rugs) but faded away within a couple of days, also very little shedding and since it's in my breakfast room it gets used everyday. I would highly recommend this item to anyone thinking about buying it.
I like this rug and have received many compliments. I have had it for about a week. It does shed when vacuumed. I have to empty my dyson after each time. It does not, however, shed any other time. It's a lighter chocolate brown with off white, raised design.
This rug is gorgeous and true to the color on the site. We also purchased the matching 2x10 runner.They do shed minimally but the quality makes me believe it will be less over time and use. I am shocked at the high quality for the price paid. The pile of the neutral color is raised and it feels lovely underfoot. I would not hesitate to purchase another in the future.
This area rug is awesome. You will need to vacuum it for awhile to get rid of the fibers, but truly, the color (I bought rust) is true to the website and the pattern is very contemporary and smart. In fact, I just moved back to the west coast from NYC and I've purchased a second one. So happy to see that it's still available. You won't be disappointed. quality is very nice.
I have had this rug now for about 3 weeks. It was exactly what I expected. The quality is great and the shedding is better than most. I sweep up a bit of shedding but you can't see it on the floor and it does NOT stick to your clothes when you kneel on it. So far it has held up very well against my boys and looks great!
We were very disappointed in this rug. It looked great online. Literally within an hour of having it on our hardwood floors we noticed clumps of the rug floating around everywhere. It has continued to shed and fall apart everyday since. By far the worst quality rug we have bought for our house. Pretty design but sadly just is cheaply made. We will get rid of it prob within a month - making it being in our house for only two months.
It looked great when I first received it but unfortunately it has shed more than expected. Also some of the threads came loose so it just looks worn overall. I think if you have it in a low traffic area it would hold up better. One plus though is I have been able to get stains out without a problem.
