This is a beautiful rug, thick, just nice overall...BUT after only putting it down in my hallway I believe in November, it is no longer straight. Because it is in the hallway on dark wood, it is very noticeable. The only way it will look straight is if I adjust it to have a raised place about 3 inches high, which, of course, just won't work. I bought 4 of these and two 9 x 12s. If the 9x12s did this, it can't be seen, thankfully. Two of the other runners seem to be fine, but I still have one I have not put down. I am hoping that Overstock will simply replace this without my having to pay for shipping, but that is yet to be determined. I can't imagine why it would stretch. It does not get much traffic as there is a door leading into my kitchen before reaching this in the hallway and the kitchen through the front door or garage is our usual path. If Overstock would like, I can send a picture to show just how it now curves.
We got this runner to match the same are rug we bought as a 9' x 12' for the Living Room. The pile height and colors match. BUT - the size of the pattern is obviously much smaller than our 9x12 rug. Only wished it came with a nonslip back.
I bought 2 of these to match the 8x11 and 5x7 matching larger rugs. I would have given this rug a 5* but I am having difficulty getting it to lie flat. (Getting the bumps out where it was rolled up. I have these runners on wall to wall carpeting. I have added carpet tape to help keep them flat. I would definitely buy again. The quality and lushness of all 4 rugs I bought from Safavieh are superb. I also bought the "Carolina Weavers Harmony Collection Aracadia Cinnabar Area rug 3'11" x 5'5". Look it up. The colors in this rug match perfectly with the colors of the 4 rugs previously mentioned. And, even though it has a different design, they go together superbly. I was looking for an area rug with a burnt brick red color and I found it!! ( P.S. I am changing my rating to a 5 star. I just love my collection of rugs.!!!!!!!!!!!
