Overall this runner looked the way I wanted it to, but upon opening it was really surprised by the smell ... natural sea grass wrapped in plastic for who knows how long was pretty aromatic. I let it air out - outside - for a day or two, then brought it in. It still had a smell, but after 2 weeks the smell is gone. Mind you, this isn't a rotten or even artificial smell. It's just a very potent dried grass smell.
The Beige Seagrass Runner (2'6x10') is a fantastic buy. I was looking for a simple runner for my entry hallway that prevented sandy shoes from tracking into my beach house. This is such a sturdy rug. I'm extremely happy with it. When I first unrolled it I was anticipating that it would take a day or so before it laid flat on the floor. Surprisingly, it just flattened out immediately and fit into place. It doesn't slide around. Its also very sturdy. Tight weave, solid border, and an attractive chevron weave pattern. Basically, I would have been happy with a simple, non-descript look, but, as friends and family entered my new home, many of them commented on what a nice rug it was. This product definitely met my expectations.
This sisal runner surpassed my expectations. It is well-made and very attractive. The size is exact. I am using it in my back entry/laundry room and the rough texture seems to clean our shoes without showing soil. I also like the fact that it does not shift. It has the lingering aroma of dried grass (which it is) but I don't find that offensive.
The rug does have an odor so we aired it outside for a couple of days before bringing it inside. It has shed some and we have occasionally needed to sweep underneath it. The previous review regarding it being difficult to walk on are quite true. It has a very tight, hard weave and I'm hoping with extended use it will soften up. The backing on it is a very thin fabric and I'm wondering how it will hold up over time. But, for our purposes in a beach house hallway, and for the great price, it's unbeatable. We will keep the rug because its inexpensive, functunal and looks great.
Initially harsh on the bare feet, but settles in well over time with walking on in shoes. Cleans well with hose and water, some soap, as long as you can spread it out in the sun to dry. Dogs haven't chewed on them ! Nice ! Recommended if it meets your size, color needs !
I ordered two of these to place permanently on our stairs (anchored with hardware). They arrived in beautiful condition, and looked to be excellent quality. However, they were far too stiff to work for our stairs, and would have been a bit rougher than I would have liked, so I returned them. If you're looking for a nice look for hallways or doors, this would likely work well. However, for stairs this particular design isn't ideal.
Where else can you get such a long runner, nicely bound and high quality, at such an affordable price? I got this for the (very) long upstairs hallway in our house to add a little casual character to the expanse of flooring. Just put it down and it laid flat almost immediately despite having been waiting in the packaging for ten days. very pleased.
I had been looking for a long natural runner for a hallway many stop at 10 or 12 feet. This fit the bill and seems to be well made. The weave is a bit thicker than appears on the photo but is still comfortable to walk on in bare feet. A few places have reed sticking up where they ended when weaving but they are not running or pulliing loose. All in all best buy I have found and comparable in quality to much higher end stores.
I have dark hardwood floors and long hallways I bought two of these and they are great. Dramatic look and works with contemporary decor beautifully. Be sure to wipe off felt backing after unwrapping. Will save you grief later
This is a VERY good quality rug - it is extremely thick. The rugs like this one that I have seen in stores are much thinner.I really do like this rug - it is well made and I am very pleased with it. I do recommend an anti-skid mat underneath, as the backing is cotton and it would slip on wood floors.
This fits my long entry hall perfectly. It's tightly woven & well finished. I almost bought a jute runner but too many reviews cited problems with dirt. I'm thinking it may have something to do with the preparation process. The matérial may need to be soaked to make it pliable. If this is done in a pond or river it would explain the dirt. The seagrass is clean & appears to be quite durable. All in all a good choice for me.
Have had this runner in the downstairs hallway of my coastal home for over a year now, and it is wonderful. It is classic beach style and very durable. We typically have 8 or more people running in and out of the house every day in the summer with wet, sandy feet, and this runner catches it all and still looks brand new. It is not a soft, plush rug, but the natural fiber is perfect for my needs. Very happy with my purchase.
We have enjoyed this rug. Colors were just as shown and it was softer than I thought it'd be. My only complaint is that after rolling it out, the ends continue to roll upward. We sometimes trip over the ends because it stays rolled up. Overall, good purchase. Wouldn't recommend putting it in a high traffic area since the ends do not lay flat.
If you don't go bare footed alot this is a great rug. Since it is made of woven jute it isn't soft on the feet. I don't mind at all because it is such nice quality and to buy a rug of this size for such a reasonable price is great. Also I was looking for a cushion for my legs when I was working in the kitchen for a long time so it is in front of my sink area and it is thick enough that it just does a perfect job. I highly recommend it.
Looks beautiful and probably will last my life time!! If you want this in your living area, plan on wearing shoes. Very coarse and not comfortable on your feet. I was going to use for my sun porch, put it in the garage instead.
This fits like a glove in front of my slider door. It's very rustic and simple. We love this rug. Easy to clean. Needs a rubber rug mat under if you have hard floors but other than that, it's perfect as is.
These are lovely to look at - just beautiful. They are rough underfoot though - no bare feet. There are stray pieces of fiber that poke out here and there - like ends that need to be tucked in. But not a deal breaker.
Used this as a runner for my stairs. It gives a very natural touch. Only draw back is the material is thick and course. It can be a little uncomfortable when walking in bare feet. Other than that, I love the look it gives my stair way, exactly what I was looking for!
Beautiful look for a seagrass runner that connects our family room to the backyard patio entrance. This keeps the carpet from wearing out and getting as dirty. Very strong fibers (seagrass) which is perfect for our application. Just have to trim some fibers from time to time. Beautiful though. 😊
I needed a pretty long runner for my hallway and thought this would do the trick. It is made of very durable material - so I can see it lasting for a while. I wasn't aware that seagrass was such a stiff material. If you are looking for a soft rug underfoot, this isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a well-constructed, durable rug for a long hallway this will work. I would recommend adding some anti-slip material if you have hardwood floors underneath. Some of the "threads" pulled loose after I laid it out, but I cut them off and it hasn't happened since.
