      Maybe I ordered the wrong rug. It certainly is not white, kinda off white. The pile is very thin, you can see the backing. My friend ordered one that was thick and white and less expensive. This rug retailed over *** dollars. Just disappointed.

      The quality of this rug is not softness to it....rough feeling. It looks great with my décor but if you're looking for quality and softness...this not buy.

      This rug is rather thin and definitely needs a pad underneath. It does look good but isn’t particularly soft

      The rug is really lovely and works well in the room I purchased it for. But I have to take one star away because the "new" smell is not appealing. It does not smell like a new carpet, but has more of an odor. I thought it was just me, but family noticed as well.

      I bought two of these, could be a little thicker but they look beautiful and sooo easy to clean.

      I love, love, love this rug! It’s a beautiful addition to my living room. Looks exactly how it does in the photos and easy to clean (unfortunately I got a stain on it the first couple days), stains come right out withsoap and water.

    • Q:

      "Is this rug "White" or "Off white"?"

      • A:

        Most rugs are off white as a pure white would be difficult to maintain.

    • Q:

      "Can this rug be vacuumed easily? (I usually blow-dry my hair in my bedroom, where this rug will be placed... so I'm looking for a rug that is plush yet easy to clean/remove long hair strands from)"

      • A:

        This item is recommended to be vacuumed without a beater bar.
