      This rug is beautiful but the "burst" pieces fall out easily. They came out or unraveled if i vaccumed it. It is very heavy and comfortable to walk across, just not practical. Perfect for a room that gets very little use. Not ideal for a room that gets a lot of foot traffic.

    • Nice....but
      Verified Purchase

      This is a great rug, size is perfect, thickness is great, price pretty good.....but the brown is a dark brown not a mocha color as in the picture. It's a bit too dark if your looking for lighter. The red, gold and orange don't pop like in the picture.

      This rug gets so many compliments from my friends! It is heavy and well made and has worn rather well. Some of the pieces have frayed a bit but that is to be expected after vacuuming and being walked on over a period of time. I would definitely buy again no questions asked!

      The rug looks great in our living room! The color is a dark, rich brown with the ribbons being russet red, orange, and beige. When I unrolled it, only two hours passed until the entire rug lay flat and there are no curling corners. My cats LOVE to roll around on the rug, which is definitely a fur magnet. Taking the advice of others, I have not ran a vacuum over the rug for fear it'll loosen the little ribbons. I have, however, used the Pledge Fur Sweeper to get up most of the hair. That seems to work the best, but I'm bummed out because I can see little brown fibers coming out of the rug. Even when my white cat rolls around on the rug she will come off with little brown fibers in her fur. There are two ribbons that seem to have come loose already, so I just cut them off.I really like the rug, it's aesthetically pleasing, but it's a pain to clean. If you have pets make sure you have some time to devote to cleaning gently as not to disturb the quality of the workmanship. I've also found that gently taking a Dustbuster or working with the upholstery attachment from my vacuum can also help clean the rug. This product is recommended as long as you realize you'll need to put some work into the maintenance.

      I bought this rug to pull my color theme together in my living room. I have a chocolate sectional and a deep red loveseat. This rug is amazing and it looks more incredible in person. The bursts of color are raised up higher than the chocolate base and it gives it an interesting textured look!

      Verified Purchase

      When I first got it and rolled it out I loved it, don't get me wrong I still love the look of it but did not expect the burst to made of ribbons, was expecting a carpet material. Anyway, I love the look but as you know ribbon is going to fray and I think when I vaccum it is pulling these ribbons causing them to fray and once ribbon starts to fray it is neverending. Overall, it is a beautiful well made rug. I have to vacuum often because of it being wool and it seems that everything sticks to it and with it being brown it shows. I can't recommend it because of the ribbon material and everytime I vacuum I cringe. Just make sure you keep your vacuum on the higher setting. sometimes I just use a sticky roller to get up any dust or hair. Good luck on your rug purchase.

    • Gorgeous Rug!
      Verified Purchase

      I am absolutely in love with this rug! I have been on the hunt for an area rug to put in my tan walled, brown furnitured living room. I had color in mind, to bring the space together and brighten up the room, but was having a very hard time finding the right fit. Then I discovered this beautiful rug! I was a new customer to and in general, somewhat skeptic of ordering an area rug online, without feeling or seeing it. Trust me, potential buyers, this rug will not dissapoint! It's crafted beautifully and is just the absolute right touch of color in my neutral room. Exactly what I was looking for. I have received only the best of compliments.

    • Trust me, this rug is awesome
      Verified Purchase

      This was one of those "too good to be true" purchase decisions on Overstock. I was admittedly fearful as people were saying the rug was rough and the ribbons were shedding. In truth, this is a stunning piece, and a complete steal at this price. I have it in my row home living room, which has limited space due to its historical design. It is PERFECT. I'm also a neat freak and love to vacuum...while I'm not going to test any limits, I don't see any problem with the maintenance thus far. Also the ribbons are actually soft, and not shedding like others claim (except for a few loose pieces I found when first unrolling it). If you are debating this rug...BUY IT!
