This rug is sold as offering "luxurious comfort" and "one of the most silky feels available". While the fibers certainly are remarkably silky feeling, there is ABSOLUTELY NO comfort, luxurious or otherwise. The rug comprises the silky filbers and the base onto which they are woven. Nothing else. There is nothing plush or soft about it at all. When you step on it, you feel the the bad-hair-plug-like attachments of the fibers beneath the thin shag layer, and you can actually see the backing through the fibers. Yes, the fibers themselves are shiny and pretty and silky, but this rug is actually ugly and harsh-looking, with a very unpleasant feel under the foot. I cannot recommend it in any way.
This is an interesting texture rug, I love to be barefoot on it. Color of the ivory has a lot of yellow (a little more than I wanted) but that's ok.
I was a little skeptical of this rug because it looks so beautiful in the picture I was afraid it was "too good to be true." But I am so glad that I bought it! This rug really exceeded my expectations. It got a great deal and it is beautiful. The product description is very accurate. I love that the fabric is SOFT and it does not shed. I only wish I had bought it in a bigger size. It's an off white color. It looks just like it did in the pictures online. It's easy to vacuum. I purchased a non-slip rug pad to go underneath and that keeps it from sliding around on my hardwood floors. It looks beautiful in my room. This rug was one of my efforts to add a more "glam" feel to my room. I would (and might) buy this rug again so I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Thank you, Overstock!
This rug is soft and feels beautiful to walk on although it is not cushy at all. It is a nice off-white color with no peach hue as shows in the photo here. Very high quality rug. If you're using it on hard floors it will absolutely need a carpet pad. I'm a very picky consumer and I would buy it again!
We got this to place on hardwood flooring under a glass coffee table. Its color and texture do a beautiful job of highlighting the metalwork of the table's base, and we find ourselves sitting on the nearby couch barefoot just so we can run our toes over the rug. And our dogs go out of their way to walk across it. (We worried initially about this but the foot traffic from three big dogs doesn't seem to show up on this very light rug at all so far - in fact seems to help fluff it up somehow.) That being said, if this wasn't under a table we would probably put a rug pad under it, because although it is well-backed it is thin. It is a little glossy too (makes sense given the material used in its construction); doesn't bother us because it works in the space, but don't buy this thinking it will look 100% like sheepskin. Needs a little fluffing on arrival, and a couple of heavy books placed on the edges for a couple of days to help it flatten out. But we love the way the pile looks, the subtle shading and sheen of the fibers, and the way it feels underfoot (with the rug pad caveat mentioned above). There might have been a slight chemical smell when we first unwrapped it but that dissipated within a day. We're really pleased with this! Thanks O, and to previous reviewers.
I am pleased with the color, style, and feel of this shag rug.
Safavieh Silken Paris Shag Rug. "'Silken'' describes this the best. It DOES like silky and it feels Incrediable! Bedroom is French Country ; gray/plum...This ivory rug gives a Neutral (Needed) accent. I LOVE IT!! Wow...
This rug is so silky but the pile is very thin and the color is too yellow for my needs. The quality was good. I returned it.
The color is more cream like, but it is super soft and looks very elegant.
what a beautiful rug. Looking for the glamorous look pick this style rug. As I always mention I only purchase Safavieh rugs for their quality and color always on point. I would not recommend this for high traffic areas or a home with small children.
We bought two ivory 3x5 flokati rugs for our bedroom. They were delivered within 3 days. They are heavy, we’ll made rugs. The color is perfect and looks like the natural sheepskin color with a touch of warm caramel. They are silky to the touch. We love them!!
Love this rug! Have ordered in 3 colors - ivory, silver gray and sable brown and multiple sizes, from 4 X 4 to 7 X 9. Possesses tons of silkiness and glamorama.
Love this rug! So snuggly and soft. Nice ivory color. The Safavieh brand in general is fantastic, both in value and quality.
Very soft, durable, and gorgeous color!!
This Safavieg Handmade Silken Glam Paris Rug feels so woderful to touch. Also it's perfect in the area I placed it in. I would highly recommend this silken Glam Paris rug! Sincerly, S Lyles
I LOVE this rug and I might order more. It's definitely a silk-style, NOT fur, so be sure you know what you're purchasing. But it's very soft. First, I put it in my bedroom and it looks great and adds a soft feel to the room. Then, I moved it to our homeschool room, and it looks great there as well. Perfect size for an accent piece. I would definitely recommend. Sturdily constructed! Be careful opening with scissors- I accidentally cut off a small piece of the rug (couldn't tell, but still be careful).
I love the quality and texture of this rug but the color is way off. Based on the picture I thought it would be white or off white but this is definitely in the light gold - beige range. If you’re looking for something to go with gray or white don’t buy this! Otherwise, beautiful soft nice rug.
This rug was perfect choice love natural ivory color . Highly recommend
Just received this rug, and I love it. It really is as soft as everyone else has posted. Each fiber appears to be very fine and has a silken sheen. I was expecting a much thicker rug, but l actually like it the way it is and I am happy that I decided to purchase it. It really does add a touch of elegance to the room.
