I like the bamboo rug; it has a backing that prevents it from sliding. Fit over hardwood floors. Perfect match for the area I needed to use it. I already have one and enjoy it as well (in another room).Read More
I am very happy with my purchase. The Chinese Bamboo Rug added to my decor. I plan to buy some smaller ones for another room. The rug was as described. LennetteRead More
I was totally surprised that the bamboo rug appeared at our doorstep days before I received the shipping notice from Overstock. Extremely fast service. It was well-packed and arrived in perfect condition. I bought it to protect a "worn" spot on our light-colored, hardwood floor in the kitchen. I had some misgivings about the size and color but it works well for the area under the table. The black edging is a nice accent the goes with a our black stove and dishwasher. We have a Scandanavian teak table and the color goes reasonably well with the rug. I chose the Burnt Bamboo color which appears darker (and shinier) on my monitor screen. For that reason alone, I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5. I don't know how well it will hold up as we've only had it a week, but so far so good. I'm happy with the purchase.Read More
I hope that the reviewer who said this was good for a rolling chair had better luck than me. On the weight of that review I ordered this item for use under my husband's desk chair over a berber carpet to replace a cracked old plastic floor protector thinking it would look very nice in his African themed den. Well he is not particularly heavy nor is his chair. But as soon as he started using it, the edges started to bend upward and it got so bad that we tripped over the edges every time we entered the room...I'm talking 4 inches off the floor at the outside edges. The center of the bamboo cracked a little and should be thicker if there is to be weight applied to it over anything other than a hard surface. This might be attractive and useful on a hard floor, but think a few times before planning to use it over a carpeted area including very low pile, firm carpet. I'm very disappointed.Read More
I purchased the natural color for my dining room table to use as a mat for protecting my carpet and it worked out perfectly. The natural color is a perfect match to my dining room set, so it looks like a complete set. Very easy to clean, just wipe up spills with a damp cloth.Read More
I love eco-friendy floor coverings like bamboo. I put this bamboo rug under my kitchen table, holds up very well and still looks great. I'm doing a good thing by supporting renewable woods like bamboo and cork.Read More
The bamboo is of very poor quality. After 1 week, it begins to split and I think the rug need another coat of varnish. It is very dull looking.Read More
This rug looks very nice in the kitchen under the table. It is very decorative and adds to the decor. The quality is good and it is very is to maintain.Read More
The rug is coming apart after just a few months of use. Very disappointed as it is beautiful.Read More
I've ordered these rugs several times before and use them in the kitchen. They hold up extremely well for about 3 years. They are SUPPOSED to be, and are described to be, coated with a protective watertight varnish that make cleaning a breeze. When the rug arrived, I thought it looked like it hadn't been varnished, but tested it anyway. Indeed, small water and foot scuff stains showed immediately. Customer service was very helpful and sent another replacement immediately, but the same inferior finish was on that one, too. I'm returning both rugs.Read More

How to Size Your Room For an Area Rug
A rug in the right size can complement the whole room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull room, or make a subtle statement.

How to Place an Area Rug
