I just received this rug today and wanted to review immediately because there is currently only 1 review and it just sn't adequate. I ordere the yellow rug so I cannot comment on the other colors. Our home decor is a mix of "happy modern" and eclectic and we thought this yellow rug would add a fun punch of color to a living room with gray concrete floors, gray sofa, and eames armchairs and accent tables. The color of the rug is not what I hoped for. It was hard to tell in the online image, but I thought the dark scrollwork pattern might be black, dark gray, or navy. Nope. It's brown/dark tan. The rug itself is not saturated with the yellow color. Instead, it looks faded (hence, "vintage") as thought in some places the color has worn off. I think that's pretty cool. However, the yellow itself isn't great. It is a lemony yellow, has sort of a florescent tinge to it. It reminds me of urine. Kinda gross. I am not sure if I can get past that, since I have two large dogs and have on many occasions in their lives cleaned up their urine. ;) The rug seems to be of good quality. I didn't want a super thick, plush rug. If you want that, this rug will disappoint. The rug is thin, but not too thin as to feel cheap or insubstantial. I put a rug pad under it and it is very comfortable to sit on. The rug is very soft. It feels like wool, although I believe it is acrylic. The scrollwork definitely makes the rug feel less modern and more vintage. So I suppose it is somewhere between a modern and vintage style. The scrollwork is very pretty and not too busy. It doesn't overwhelm the rug and is quite faded itself. The edges of the rug, where the material is bound, are cream. Overall, I think this is a pretty decent rug, especially for the price -- overdyed rugs are pretty trendy right now and can run easily over $1,000 for this size. However, I don't think it is truly the "saturated" rug it claims to be. I was hoping for something more vibrant.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The yellow rug is less vibrant than appears online, yellow is lemon, there is more cream in the actual rug and the darker color is light brown/tan

  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not especially accurate
  • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
