Update: I did purchase a thick carpet pad (8 x 10), and I laid it on Top the carpet for a week; this worked well at getting the buckles/turned up corners straightened out. I now have the pad Under the rug, and it much improves how the rug feels underfoot. 5/8/19 I find this rug an inspiration. Variegation and design bring the colors of this rug (blues, yellow, gray & white) together to create its interest. One star off b/c of limited sizes available. I purchased largest size, and it’s ok, but my room really needed a bit more floor coverage. As with many new carpets, this one is buckling due to being rolled up —heavy books on top of creases for a week or so will flatten it out. I don’t see as much yellow in mine as it appears in website photos & actual yellow is more muted. The teal leans closer to blue (turquoise) than to green (teal), and there is even a bit of dark royal blue in the rug, as well as gray. The website closeup shows the variegation, but, when looking at the rug on the floor, with furniture, and from a bit of a distance, you don’t see “variegation,” you see a geometric design in muted color. With pale yellow tone-on-tone furniture, and a large modern wall hanging of neutral colors, I needed a little color to pull the room together and to ground it. I decided on light turquoise/teal and yellow/gold. I found pretty accent throw pillows easily enough. The rug was a bit more difficult, but I think this Monae geometric is perfect. I didn’t buy a rug pad, but I’m going to get one. It’s not bad without, but it will enhance both the look, feel and longevity of this rug with a pad underneath. Would buy it again.
Beautiful rug. It is better than expected. Would not consider this an outdoor rug. Does not shed. Not as cream colored like it looks like in picture, gray tones. Very Very happy with purchase!
Rug came damaged in package. Also, the coloring of this rug is NOT what the suggested in the photo. It's not as bright. The actual rug is quite beige. Quite disappointing.
We absolutely love this rug in our living room. Feels good underfoot and has held up well with vacuuming in a high traffic part of our home. Seems to be good quality. It goes really well with the Safavieh Monaco Vintage Boho Watercolor Blue/ Multi Rug we have in our dining room (we have an open floor plan so you can see both from many angles in the house). No complaints.
