    This rug arrived quickly. I didn't realize the 'burst' pattern was raised - which I love! Colors are true to photo.

    I love the rug. It looks beautiful and adds so much to my room. It is worth the money. The only down side is the little burst decoration is not attached very well so I'm finding them all over. Even with that I still am happy.

    Beautiful rug, loved the different textures. Some shedding of the blue base and the strings but it goes away pretty fast. Bought it when we were selling our house and the new owners loved it so much they asked for it to stay.

    I love everything about this rug except that the colour isn't exactly what it looks like in the picture. It's more of blue-ish grey. But I love it still.

  • Beautiful rug
    Verified Purchase

    I read the reviews before making my decision to purchase this rug and I have to agree with the other reviewers that the flower bursts add another dimension to the rug. I happen to like that feature and it influenced me to buy this rug. Also the color is a bit more on the greyish blue than what your monitor may show, but it is pretty close to what I see on mine. I did lose a few ribbons when I first vacuumed it, but it wasn't anything significant. I am very happy with my purchase for the price paid and the quality of the product. This is my first wool rug and I noticed after about two weeks that it started to smell musty. I used a baking soda based carpet deodorizer and that took care of that problem. I don't believe the smell is unique to this rug as I've read reviews about other wool rugs having a musty or 'wet dog' smell. Be prepared for that if you haven't had a wool rug before.

  • Great Rug
    Verified Purchase

    This rug looks great in person. One thing to note is that the bursts are not woven into the rug - they are long pieces of wool/material that are skinny, flat and shiny (what makes the bursts look golden) that are hooked in to the weave of the rug. So, they stick up out of the weave. There were a few that were loose when I positioned the rug in my living room. This is the only reason I have not given it 5 stars. I was worried that my vacuum cleaner would pull them out but it did not. The rug looks expensive, its thick and the colors are great. The pictures online are a good representation of the actual colors.

  • Love this rug
    Verified Purchase

    I read all of the reviews before I purchased this rug and was afraid of making such a large heavy purchase but I loved the look of the rug and liked that the starbursts were sewn on top. I have a robot vacuum cleaner and I use it on this rug and it does a great job. I read a review that the starbursts are easy to pull out and I tried to pull one out but the are sewn in tightly. Also the rug sheds but that is normal with a wool rug. No issues with shipping I received it within a few days of purchase.

  • waste of money
    Verified Purchase

    not so pleased with this rug-the color is a much more dull blue then I was expecting- plus the little ribbons are all coming out of the rug. I don't think this rug will last too long- I feel it was a waste of money-not happy with my purchase :(

  • Great rug!
    Verified Purchase

    A friend of mine helped me pick out this rug, and I wasn't enamored with the pattern when I bought it but she insisted it was perfect for my bedroom. When I received it, she was right!!! It is BEAUTIFUL! and the best quality! The sunbursts stand out, and are vibrant color, really adding attraction to the area. This rug pulls everything together. Its like a show piece. New Zealand wool is an amazing thick, quality wool. Something I will have for years and years. Colors are exactly like on the internet, only more vibrant in person. A great find.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "What is the background color? Is it sea foam or blue?"

    • A:

      Sea foam! The rugs r really gorgeous, the problem is the decorative weave is really shedding!

    • A:

      The background is definitely more of a "seafoam" or pale greenish leaning blue. It is not a true blue background.
