I just purchased my second of this size rug. I have had the first rug for a year in my dining room and it has held up beautifully. It is thick and holds up well to my 2 cats and 2 dogs, who all love to sit on and sometimes scratch/bite it. It still looks good. I purchased a second one to go under my queen size bed and it seems to be exactly the same in size, color, and quality as the rug I purchased over a year ago. As far as the dirt/dust that other reviewers have mentioned, that is the dust from your house accumulating under the rug. Since there is no backing on jute rugs, you have to vacuum under it occasionally in order to remove the dust that falls through. Rugs with backings simply hold the dust inside of them. I will be purchasing more of these rugs in various sizes for my home. Very good value and not at all orangey.
This rug is gorgeous and I love it. It's not a thick rug, but it feels great with a pad under it. Colors look just like they did on my monitor. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this inexpensive rug and will definitely buy more Lyndhurst area rugs in the future.
Love, love, love this rug! It looks exactly like the photo on the website and has wonderful dimension and shine. Soft, silky, and plush. The backing is not visible unless the fibers are being rubbed and disturbed -- I live alone and have no pets, so the rug just sits there and looks perfect. :) It's like faux rabbit fur, and I love that it is both beige and ivory, so it goes with my beige couch but also lightens & brightens the space. Amazing price for the quality, can't beat it!
I read review after review on numerous rugs. I was nervous, as it seemed there were an equal amount of reviews that were negative and positive. After a month, I finally jumped in and placed my order. I ordered the 9.6"x13" and its exactly what I received. I ordered on a Friday and received it the following Wednesday!! The best way to describe this rug is luxurious and classy. It is super soft, so far does not shed, has no odor whatsoever, and the pile is perfect (about 1.5 inches) and the pile is so thick that you cannot see through to the padding. The padding is woven with tightly weaved thread and does not flake off. Also when you fold the rug, you cannot see through to the padding which is a tell tale sign of a well made rug! The color is exactly as pictured on my screen (my resolution anyways). The rug came folded, so there are a few noticeable fold marks after I laid it out in my space, but none of them major and I expect the fold marks to work themselves out over the next few weeks. I am so happy I finally placed my order! Don't hesitate and order now!
I purchased this rug at a great price and was surprised how fast it arrived (2 days and I chose standard shipping). I'm transforming a large bedroom into an office/lounge room and has salmon colored walls. The room is vibrant thanks to this colorful rug pulling all the different colors of the room together. Rug is soft to the touch. Very happy customer.
FYI, I'm typing this review on my smartphone and happy to see Overstock now allows us to add pics of the product we purchased!! Hope you can see mine.
I"m not kidding when I say I have been diligently searching for a rug for 2 years! I had decided in the end that I wanted to go with a shag for our living room but everywhere I looked (and I looked EVERYwhere!) if they were good quality, they were $XXX.XX dollars, if the were affordable, they were crap. I finally found this rug online and felt it was going to be too good to be true. I started at the screen for an hour trying to decide between mushroom, ivory, beige, or taupe. I clicked on taupe and couldn't be more pleased! It's a very gray shaded medium brown color. Simply stunning in my rustic home where I use lots of natural colors that are more on the cool end of the color spectrum. This rug is very plush, thick, and soft. My dog has made it his new bed (much to my demise). I would recommend this to anyone! I can't tell you how happy I am. Also I did not notice any odor from the rug after rolling it out. Had friends over the night after we got it and they didn't notice a smell either. I'm thinking of buying another one in a different color for our loft. Simply wonderful and Affordable!
This is our new dining room rug. Sort of brave for us with small children, but I love it so much and the price was very good. I thought it's worth it. It is not a white white.... more off white which works well for me. It's under s more tradition table and chairs which I hope to replace soon. But for now this rug adds the modern touch I was looking for.
This beautiful rug is very cushy, is beautiful under our dining room table, and was a great price. One surprise: the size of the design. Each medallion is about 14" in diameter. This is oK for us, because much of it is under the table, but it might be too bold a pattern in the middle of a room. I'd be happy to provide a photo that shows it in the room, if Overstock wants to add it.
I was hesitant to buy this rug at first because everything in my living room was light colored. In the picture the rug looks a little too neutral but when I got it in person the grays and the blues were very vibrant so I was very happy about that. I could have prob used one size up but I'm still very happy with my purchase.
like this shag carpet a lot, nice and soft but much darker shade of gray then pictured so my kids were disappointed, more like charcoal color rather than silver...also its a deep pile rug, much 'shaggier' than pictured too.
I love this rug! It's always a bit worrying to buy something hoping it will match your decor but this is a perfect match for my gray schemed living and dining room. The white is a clean cream color and the grays range from light to dark. The quality is very good and I can recommend this purchase to anyone matching gray schemes.
This area/statement rug is to die for. It goes perfectly with my couches (I just moved into a new place), and it is the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. And what I love about it, is that it isn't flingy. It's sturdy and doesn't get ugly around the edges. Great find! Great buy....Happy Customer :)
I've never purchased a rug online before and was a little bit aprehensive in doing so especially with the pictures of this rug. The pictures do not do the product justice.
I am extremely impressed with the quality of the rug. Very soft, plush and it gave my living room that upscale chic look I was going for. The color is more white than ivory which I was even more pleased with. Very little shedding and a whole lot prettier than the product pictures above.
I would recommend purchasing a nice thick rug pad as the sheep skin is a bit thin and with hardwood floors it would add more cushion.
Looking for a neutral rug with a pop of color, I found this little gem! The blues and greens are subtle but definitely show up nicely with the beige and browns. It looks awesome against my wood floor and I get so many compliments. I loved it so much, I ordered the runner too!
This is a really nice rug and it is comfortable to walk on with your bare feet. However, this is a natural sisal rug, so it is not soft like a wool rug. We have it in our bathroom and it looks and feels great. I would not put this rug in a children's room, though, as it is not that soft. The quality of this rug is very good and it is nice and thick. We did not need a rug pad ot put under it and iis sitting on top of tile. It is also fairly heavy and does not move aorund at on our bathroom floor.
Also, the color of our rug is more of a copper colored/ light brown and has more richer hues than shown in the photo. Please be aware that the photo makes the rug look more of a pale beige color and ours does not look like that. We think it looks much better in person than what the photo gives it credit for. I am actually thinking about buying a larger version of this rug to put under our dining room table. If you are looking for a very nice rug to make the room feel a bit more casual, this is the rug!
This rug was bought for my family room. Although, the colors are way off from what the picture portrays, the quality of the rug is awesome! I was expecting a darker beige/taupe with grey aspects in it, but the rug is more so shades of grey with off white designs. Even though the colors aren't what I was expecting, the rug's softness made up for it. The pile is high, and the material is soft. I've had this rug for about a month now and my dog loves it as well. I would definitely recommend!
Very pleased with this carpet purchase. It was worth the money. Colors are beautiful, high quality and carpet is very soft. My family would rather than a nap on the carpet than the new couches we just purchased. :)
I've had this rug for 3 months now and I still love it! I get compliments all the time! I bought a simple anti slip pad to go underneath and the rug feels soft but not super plush. It hides my dogs shedding hair and grass/dirt very well! No funky factory smell and no problems with curling edges. It's a fantastic quality rug and the price is phenomenal! Love, love, love!
This carpet is beautiful. I am so glad that I read the reviews because the color does not match the picture. It is much brighter and the colors are gold and orange. That is what I wanted and it only goes to show how important writing a review is. I have never written one in my many years with Overstock. It helps others because buying online has some drawbacks especially when color is a concern. I love Overstock and will continue to use them forever!!!!!!
I was concerned it would be green as others reviewed and rolled up it did have a green hue. However, it was very minor and fades because this is seagrass.
I ordered in 3 sizes to accommodate an open floor plan and help it flow. Wish we could add pictures, all three rooms are different in their own way but beautiful with this rug because it goes with any decor.
The weave is tight enough that dining chairs easily slide in and out without damaging the weave. The border is light and although it seemed to get dirty fast I found that wiping with a dry cloth knocked off most of the dirt. We do have a dog and had a party after adding the rugs...they still look great. I did order two 4x2.5 rugs to lay over a high traffic corner and also where my husband occasionally looses a drop of coffee. I got the same pattern and border and take them up when we have a party. I did this because originally we had Overstocks Cozy Shag Rug which hides everything, is very forgiving and yet we wore out one corner after really heavy use on one corner.
In two rooms I added smaller rugs (5x8 over 9x12 and 3x5 over 5x8) to layer over these to add dimension and texture. Love this look in magazines and it really increased the cozy factor. Definitely recommend this rug!! I also liked the subtle chevron pattern but it wasn't available in all sizes I needed. I saw one in person and it subtle enough that it will bear the test of time.
Our local carpet store custom makes these and it would have been $400 more had I gone through them. Using my O Rewards, taking advantage of an Overstock sale weekend I really saved. I also called Overstock since it was my birthday month and although they don't have a birthday promo program he offered 10% off which was nice but less than the 12% they already had going. Customer service also helped me find a bulk purchase coupon. Gotta love Overstock!!
C'mon Overstock....let us add pictures! You could sell more rugs if others like the layering effect.
A wonderful milk chocolate and various shades of blue rug that looks great with my new couch and loveseat! The blues contrast nicely with the milk chocolate brown. The leaves and berries are larger than I initially thought, looking at other pictures on this site showed me what I would get before I ordered it (the 10x8 or 9x7 rug in front of the white couch picture showed the proper scale of the leaves and berries). Awesome rug for which I am getting wonderful compliments. Thank you!
This is a great rug. My wife and I love it. I looks great in our living room. The 6x9 vs the usual 5x8 was also a plus, it made a huge difference for our space. It just perfect!!! You feel the quality under feet when walk on it. We are very pleased with this purchase. If it fits your color scheme go for it. It's worth it, and the price is great.
First, the color is not like the photos. This rug has both darkish grey and white shag mixed together, which is what makes it appear medium grey from afar. This was not an issue for me, since I was not picky about the exact shade of grey.
The rug is soft and lies flat, although it is not extremely thick or plush. It is comfortable and looks nice in my living room. I am happy with it since it is at a good price.
I love the white color of the jute rug! I've wanted jute for a while but haven't seen anything that works. We bought it to provide fall protection for our baby. It also does a good job of hiding dog hair and dirt. We vacuum about 2x a week because of the baby so I gave this 4 stars because it does shed a lot and the fibers get everywhere. Since we're used to sweeping up dog hair all of the time, we don't mind the fibers. Overall, great purchase! We ended up purchasing the round rug as well for under our dining table
This rug is exactly what I was looking for, and I've looked at a lot of rugs!! As others have said it is more of a beige cream instead of ivory, which was perfect as my colors are gray, beige and cream. The design adds character without overpowering the room. It rolled out beautifully and the edges only took a couple of hours to flatten without doing anything special. It just needed to be fluffed up by rubbing your hand back and forth on it. I suspect a vacuum would work too. It is plush and perfect to sit on too. I love this rug!!
This really brightened up my living room and was an inexpensive way to change my decor. Great price for an 8 x 10 rug and much softer on the feet than I expected. Had a hard time getting my dog to move off of it so I could move the furniture back in place. With a few pillow cover changes and curtains it helped make a BIG difference from the previous black and white (zebra rug) decor to the bright teal.
Great carpet - very true to picture - best to have a non-slip rug mat underneath. Need to weigh down corners for the first few days to smooth it out. Great addition to living room with dark hardwood floors.
Love this rug.
Looks great in my family room.
Colors are vibrant. So many colors to choose from that you can't go wrong trying to coordinate.
Glad that this has built-in no-slip underside.
Super glad that it doesn't shed like some other rugs.
Absolutely delighted with my purchase. And it was so affordable :)
Thanks Overstock for making this available.
This rug came in and was true to the color seen on the computer which is not always the case. The size fit perfectly for the room we were planning to use it in. I love it. Cleans up easily. The border isn't too busy to distract from other patterns in the room. Can't believe how well it goes with the furniture color. Speedy delivery and the price was great.
Rugs that are 5 inches by 8 inches to 6 inches by 9 inches are the perfect size for a placing in a small living area or under a modest dining room table, and they can also help to establish the feeling of separate areas in a great room. These rugs come in a wide range of colors, styles, and materials, and in many cases, you can find identical copies of these rugs in different sizes. That makes it easy to pair your 5x8 or 6x9 rug with a runner, doormat, large area rug, or multiple other types of rugs with matching designs. If you're looking for a moderate-size rug, browse top brands such as Safavieh, nuLoom, Martha Stewart, Juniper Home, Laura Ashley, Tommy Bahama, and more. Read on to learn more about rug materials and patterns, and discover the answers to some frequently asked questions.
The classic material for an area rug, wool is naturally flame resistant, durable, nonallergenic, and stain-resistant, making it an ideal choice for a busy home. These rugs are typically handmade by weaving wool yarn through a backing to create compelling designs, but some are also machine woven. Wool rugs usually come with cotton backings, so all the materials are completely natural.
Another natural fiber, cotton is another popular material for area rugs. There are braided cotton rugs which feature rich multi-color designs as well as woven cotton rugs with subtle neutral colors or shades of grey. Some cotton rugs include other materials such as polypropylene for extra durability and stain resistance. In other cases, cotton rugs feature sisal, a sturdy fiber that's made from sisal leaves and particularly useful for outdoor mats.
Polypropylene is a synthetic fiber used in ropes, rugs, and a range of other items. Technically, this material is a type of plastic or polymer, but these rugs feel smooth to the touch and add softness underfoot. Polypropylene rugs come in a huge range of designs and colors from traditional Oriental patterns to modern geometric themes. These rugs are ideal for high-traffic areas, as they are durable and generally stain resistant.
While wool, cotton, jute, and polypropylene tend to be the most common materials for area rugs of this size, there are even more options when it comes to rug materials. Natural fiber rugs can include cotton, wool, or other natural fibers, while synthetic rugs are made of polypropylene, polyester, acrylic, or similar synthetics. There are also silk rugs, which are best for living rooms or formal spaces without a lot of foot traffic. Hemp and bamboo are durable, environmentally friendly rug materials that are growing in popularity. You may also find rayon, seagrass, chenille, microfiber, faux fur, cowhide, leather, and a handful of other materials. The abundance of available options makes it easy to find a rug that complements any type of decor.
Solid rugs come in almost every color possible, from bright reds to soft greys to calming blues and everything in between. These rugs are ideal for tying together patterned furnishings, and they work perfectly in offices, bedrooms, and living areas. In some cases, the solid color is enhanced by different pile heights that make the appearance of a pattern in the rug, but in other cases, they have a completely uniform look.
Rugs with geometric patterns can consist of a long list of colors or just two or three carefully curated tones. They can be as simple as a solid color rug with a grid pattern in a contrasting color, or they can be a busy collection of different lines and exciting geometric shapes. Rugs with geometric designs often overlap with abstract patterns, checkerboards, and even polka dots.
Reminiscent of styles from Persia (Iran), India, Turkey, China, and many other parts of the world, Oriental area rugs have been adorning homes for centuries. These rugs were popular long before running water and electricity were a standard feature in homes, and their popularity shows no signs of waning. These rugs can feature silk, wool, cotton, or synthetic materials, and they come in low or high pile heights. Traditionally, they were handmade, but you can now find oriental pattern rugs that are machine woven as well. Common designs for Oriental rugs include trellis and floral patterns.
5x8 - 6x9 Rugs FAQ
What size rug do you need?
To determine what size of rug you need, use your tape measure to find the length and width of the area you want to cover. For under a dining table, make sure to leave ample room so you can pull out the chairs and sit comfortably, and for living spaces, decide if you want the rug to go in front of or slightly under the furnishings.
Do you need a rug pad?
The short answer? Yes. A rug pad helps to prevent your rug from sliding around, and it also adds a little extra softness underfoot. On hardwood, a pad is essential, but it can be optional if you're placing a rug on carpet. Even if a rug has a backing, a rug pad is still a worthwhile investment.
Which rug material is the best?
Ultimately, the rug material you choose boils down to personal preference. If you are trying to avoid allergens, you may want to choose natural, organic fibers. However, for maximum affordability and durability, opt for synthetic fibers.
Should I buy the rug or the furniture first?
Again, this is a personal choice. You can buy a beautiful rug and fill the room with furniture that complements those colors and patterns. Alternatively, you can start by collecting a furniture set you love and then bring in a matching area rug.
What pattern of rug should you choose?
To subdue a busy room, consider a solid-colored rug or a rug with a simple pattern such as an ombre design, which features different blending shades of the same color. Detailed patterns add intrigue to a space, and they are ideal in rooms with solid-color furnishings and window treatments. In all cases, the pattern should mirror the style of the room. So that's possible, there are rugs that come in styles such as farmhouse, bohemian, modern, transitional, and abstract, as well as vintage and shabby chic.
