love the rug but it's filthy
I love the rug. It's really pretty and looks great in my home. What I don't like is the amount of soot that falls from the rug. I haven't been able to put down the non-slip rug pad b/c of all the dirt. My hardwood floor is covered with a gray dust that needs to be cleaned constantly. I'm hoping that after some time the rug will eventually shed all of the dirt and we can put the rug pad down and wash the floor less frequently.
Color is gorgeous!
Someone complained in an earlier review that the color was not a true, warm gold. She/he said it had tones of green. I have to wonder if she/he is a bit color blind. The gold in this rug is warm and beautiful. It has an undertone of tan which keeps the gold from being too yellow or too bright. I have a color on the walls that is called Blonde - a very pale, creamy goldish yellow that is next to natural log walls. The rugs are beyond stunning. I bought two 4x6 rugs and 1 long runner. 1 4x6 is in the front entry, another just off to the left in front of the office door, then the 2x14 runner down the hall. It is the prettiest combination ever. I have a lot of oriental rugs in our large log home home. Safavieh is one of my favorite manufacturers. Their wool rugs are plush, and the patterns and colors are lovely. Make sure to spend the extra money to buy rug pads - it's the key to making area rugs feel luxurious. The only place I don't use a pad is under the dining room table. So if you're looking for a rug with gold tones I highly recommend this rug.
