This rug is the perfect choice for folks looking to reproduce the look and feel of antique moroccan berber style rugs from the 60's and 70's. The plush shag rug is very thick and dense making the quality far more impressive then the price would suggest.

i did extensive research on beni ouarain/moroccan trellis rugs but wanted something slightly different than the classic antique reproduction look. an obstacle i was frequently coming across was color - was looking for off-white with grey trellis but the majority of rugs i saw were beige and taupe (greyish-brown). that being said, this rug is PERFECT. it is a true off-white soft and lush shag which gives it a more contemporary look than the antique replicas, and the synthetic fibers require infrequent vacuuming as opposed to wool that massively sheds. the fact that this rug comes in grey OR brown rules out any question of the shade of the trellis. i purchased the grey which is truly grey, no deceiving brown undertone whatsoever. added bonus for me, the grey has flecks of black threads throughout. the rug is exactly as pictured, exceeded my expectations, and the quality & price is absolutely impressive.
I received the rug and I am so happy with it. It looks great in my living room. Moroccan rugs are very expensive for someone who isn't ready to invest this is a great way to get the look without the price. I am very happy with this rug.

First Impressions: PROS: The nuLOOMrug Moroccan Trellis Shag Rug measures exactly 5'3" x 7'6" as stated. There are no "bare" spots in this rug, it's thick and plush and feels soft underfoot. It's easy to vacuum with an attachment (don't try an upright vacuum on shag!) to "fluff" it up a bit. NO off gassing, NO rolled edges, NO bunching - it lays flat and is a great value for the low price point. Delivery was fast and unpacking was easy. Be sure to purchase a gripper mat if you're placing this rug on hardwood. CONS: I purchased this rug in GRAY DIAMOND. Others have said that this is a bright or light gray diamond, but I'd have to strongly disagree. There are strands of black with the gray making it what I'd call a dark charcoal gray. Many might call it black at first glance as there are enough black strands in the diamonds to make it near black, but it is NOT a blue gray or a silver gray nor is the diamond a solid color, it's a blend of colored strands. The background is off-white, not a yellowish cream or beige which is exactly what I was looking for. My only disappointment would be the shiny fiber strands throughout which cheapen the look overall, but maybe they're necessary to give it some life. If able, I'll add to my post at the six month and one year mark with an update on how it wears. I have three pets and grandchildren, so we'll give it a workout. OVERALL: A wonderful rug for the price - contemporary and fun - that will hopefully last a few years at most.
the pictures do no justice for the rug. I just received it today and I am so excited about completing my living room. It looks like I paid a lot of money for this moroccan style rug when i saved a bunch. This rug on other sites is well over 300.00. I am happy with my purchase.
I was hesitant to order as I've had bad experiences with quality of online rug purchases, but this seems like a winner. Thick enough to look and feel right in an upscale home. Had an odor for the first week or so, but that slowly left as it aired out. It is in a low traffic area, but I think it would hold up fairly well even if it was not. I got the ivory with the gray trellis, and it brightens up my small office nicely. Enough variation in color that hair from a black dog blends in, which is good since the dog loves to lie on it.
Absolutely love this rug! It is very comfortable on your feet and looks great in my bedroom. I have a black lab who sheds a lot so I was worried about the white rug, but his hair doesn't seem to show. It is easy to vacuum and doesn't shed. I would definitely recommend this rug.
We ordered this rug for our nursery. Overall, I am very happy with the appearance as it is just what I expected from the photos. It is not quite as soft as I anticipated, but it is still very plush and comfortable! The only downfall thus far (we have had the rug for about a month) is that it is quite difficult to clean. Surface dirt is easy, but we have a dog that decided he didn't like the rug once we laid it on the floor. I spent several days with a spot cleaner removing urine. The fibers hold liquid and it takes forever to dry, even with our mini steam cleaner. Overall, we love it! But i wouldn't put it in an area that would encounter a lot of spills.
