      This is my third rug I've purchased from Overstock. I will continue to outfit my house with items from Overstock as this website has the best prices for very high end merchandise. This rug is for sure a high end piece of art. The brown is a true chocolate color and the "star bursts" are made from a satin type of ribbon. I have noticed that when I vacuumed the rug, some of the "ribbon" bursts will start to unravel and fray a bit. However, I just clip the unraveled part of the ribbon bursts with scissors. This rug is very textured and even when the ribbons fray and become more "fuzzy" looking, it only adds to the textural nature of the rug. Overall, it is an incredible value and everyone who has come to my house is drawn to the rug and how incredible it looks. By the way, it feels really good under food and almost "massages" your feet and is super comfortable!

    • Gorgeous Rug! But read reviews before buying!
      Verified Purchase

      I love this rug. It is well made, colorful, and everything it looks like in the photo. I bought the rug, having reservations about it due to other reviews, but I hadn't found anything else that I liked as much, and I am so glad I did get it. That being said, the comments about the tufts on the rug are true. If you vacuum over the rug with the brush roller on, you pull up the orange and red strings. I would describe the colored tufts to be like chenille, they don't look like they are ribbons (like some reviews described), but definitely a different material than the brown background of the rug. The different material gives the starbursts that interesting texture. After I put the rug down, I tried pulling out some of the threads to see if they easily come out, and they don't. So my opinion is that they won't come out with regular use, like walking on it. Here would be my recommendations if you are considering this rug... 1) Don't put it in a room with a lot of traffic. I have it in my bedroom. I do have two big dogs, that love to lie on it, but even with them walking on it, it seems to wear fine. 2) Don't vacuum it with the brush roller on. The roller brush will pull the color threads out. When I did it, it probably pulled out a dozen threads, which you can't really tell, but when you look at your vacuum roller, you can see them. 3) The longer, chenille pieces do unravel, which may be what is getting caught in the vacuum. If this is going to bug you, don't buy the rug. I haven't figured out how to stop this, if I do, I'll post another review. But for now, I just trim them when they bug me. This would be kept to a minimum depending on how much you walk on and use the rug. Bottom line, it is a wool rug, and a good quality one. Definitely worth the price. But be warned that with anything that is this cool, you might have to give up some versatility to get a piece of art.

    • I don't know what to think
      Verified Purchase

      I was so excited to find a carpet I really liked online. But picture perfect is not real life perfect. First of all, the carpet is not made in New Zeland! It is made in India. I couldn't find any note on it noting that it was handmade. The brown part of carpet is made of wool, but the flowers are made of ~1/3in wide synthetic twine (I was so upset when I saw it because they make the carpet look cheepish!) and this twine is kind of sharp when you walk barefeet on it. Be careful not to pull it because it comes out really effortless. I think, for the quality of it, it is overpriced. The only reason I am not returning it is the hassle of returning it. It weighs 62lbs., so the shipping by UPS or FedEx will cost me at least another $xx...

    • Worth it!
      Verified Purchase

      I am and interior designer and have been searching for a rug that would make a statement in my living area and this was the perfect choice. Others have mentioned that it is like a piece of artwork on the floor and they are correct. Both my husband and I were impressed with the quality of the rug and after searching everywhere the price could not be beaten. The background is a rich chocolate with the bursts being red, terracotta and cream. The burst are actually made of a different yarn and are cut higher to make it raised. Others have said that they though design was ribbon and above the rug, but it is not. You will get some shedding from this rug as it is tufted, which means that the yarn is glued to the backing. All tufted rugs shed to some degree. All in all, well worth the money.

    • Don't do it!!

      I bought this rug a year ago and let me say it was the worst purchase ever!! It sheds constantly (little brown balls EVERYWHERE) and you can't vacuum over the sunburst because it pulls them and you end of cutting them with scissors. Because it's such a hassle to maintain I don't vacuum it often at all and when I do my husband jokingly says "So how long do you think it will take to groom the pet today." BUYER BEWARE. I recently found a rug to replace it. I didn't send it back b/c the shipping and handling was OUTRAGEOUS.

    • Modern Design
      Verified Purchase

      Love this rug, but I am concerned about its durability over time. I have owned it now for a few weeks and I could trim frayed ends off the ribbons daily. You probably can't tell unless you look real close, but it does bother me. I chose not to return it because I have been searching forever for a rug that is fairly inexpensive, made of wool and yet modern looking. The colors are vibrant just like the picture. This rug is very plush and thick. I have experienced no shedding as well.Overall, this rug is stunning for the investment!

    • Delighted with Rug!
      Verified Purchase

      This was my first order at Overstock.com. I was hesitant to order this brightly colored rug, but the colors were exactly what I needed for our family room. The rug arrived within 10 days, which was a delightful surprise as we were having out-of-the-country guests staying with us for three weeks. The colors are vibrant and beautiful! The quality of the rug was exceptional! We have three dogs; and, so far, the rug is holding up well. Two of the dogs are Labrador Retrievers, which are large dogs, and neither one has pulled any wool threads up so far. Everyone who walks in the room instantly comments on the beautiful rug. As I've never been very successful in choosing home decorating items for my home, I am thrilled that I was able to choose such a beautiful rug by myself! I will definitely try Overstock.com in the future.

      This rug appears to be quality construction, however the description is not correct. The color bursts are not made of wool. The description says wool rug with cotton backing. That is true, however the color burst appear to be a thick shiny material that is looped through the rug and is the length of about a shag rug. I would not have ordered the rug if I had know the color burst were not the same wool and level construction that appeared in the ad pictures. I repeat I think the quality is good, but you do not get what the ad description says. i am keeping the rug, because it would cost too much to send it back, as I got one of the larger area rugs.

    • Good quality for the price!
      Verified Purchase

      We are very pleased with this rug. The colors are close to the online photo and it seems well-made with nice wool in an extra dense pile. One thing we didn't expect was the higher pile of the starbursts. They're in a different material and raise higher than the chocolate brown base. This might be a problem in terms of longevity due to the effects of vacuuming. So far, very little shedding. We've recently purchased much more expensive rugs from big name home design stores and this is as nice, if not nicer.

    • Awesome Rug

      I am now the owner of two Safavieh Handmade Soho Burst rugs. I was a little skeptical before purchasing them due to the reviews for this item. I have not experienced any problems with the burst and have vacuum them several times a week. The quality and workmanship is outstanding, the price is unbelievable!

    • Not impressed
      Verified Purchase

      Rug arrived within the same week that I ordered it, in good condition. I do not believe that the rug looks as good in person as it does online. As mention by others you cannot just run your vaccum cleaner over it, you really have to get down there on your hands and knees with one of the attachments. The brown part of the rug is everywhere, all over my hardwood floors and my sofa. Although I did keep the rug, I am currently looking for another to replace it. I would not recommend the purchase of the rug.

    • sheds terrible
      Verified Purchase

      Thought the design was in the rug and not a separate identity. Each is pulled through the rug and comes up when vacuumed. Vacumming is hard pressed. The only way I have found to clean this is to use my dog brush or a lint brush and then there is more carpet fibers on the brush then my animals shed.. The carpet itself sheds... terrible, terrible, terrible for the price that we paid. Needless to say, this will soon be coming off our floor.

    • Unraveling
      Verified Purchase

      This rug provided a great burst of color. The colored pieces are longer, and made out of a ribbon like material. Unfortunately, right away the red ribbons started unraveling on the traffic areas. They would pull out and be several inches long. Each morning I had to get up and cut them all back to size, only setting myself up for further unraveling throughout the day. The red seemed to be the worst. I returned the two rugs for a full refund, so other than the inconvienence, it was handled properly by Overstock.

      Worst carpet I have ever purchased. The Burst designs are individual ribbons which pull and fray, when being vacuumed. I am 75 years old, I cannot remember when I have purchased anything this disappointing, I am on my hands and knees to cut fraying strings every day. Without a doubt, I would not recommend this rug!!!!!!!

    • Buyer beware, would not recommend for long term

      I purchased this rug Dec 2010. The colors are beautiful but the rug itself is a nightmare. Right from the start the tufts pulled out even while using the vacuum on no brush setting. The edges also frayed and had to be constantly clipped. Honestly, this rug was more work than grooming my dog! Even though it is beautiful to see, I am replacing this rug with something else. I even contacted the maker Safavieh to inquire about returning it. They did not stand behind the quality of their product.

      The colors are true to the pictures shown, the raised starbursts are very eye catching. I don't mind the pilling because I know it always happens with natural fibers (wool). The quality is amazing, I absolutely recommend. Update: I kept this rug for almost 8 years. Many strings pulled out over time but it really held up great other than that.

      The reviewers were right. The yarns for depicting the colors of the bursts do come out as soon as we placed a vacuum on them. Will have to cut them if we don't want the rug to look shaggy. Otherwise, the colors are pretty accurate on the photos, though the background brown is dark, closer to chocolate brown. Love the design of the wool rug. Feels thick too.

      More beautiful in person . It endured dogs ,cats, kids, and wine. The only downside was the yarn used on the starburst design pulls out . Slowly at first but after a year daily one or more would be pulled .

      the dense thickness, along with the plush softness still make this rug a winner! the only draw backs are that the woven colored bursts are not wool and probably silk? polyester? or other non-cotton, non-wool matterial. They also tend to pull loose or hang out away from the rest of the wool rug. when vacuuming crumbs or hair from it, the rotor brush usually attempt to pull on and snag these. I often just wait until I am done, then use scissors and cut the pulled pieces of to lie flat with the rest of the rug. Otherwise, these "Strays" look a bit raggedy and ruin the continuity of the smooth warm chocolate rug. The contrast visually still looks terrific.

      I get continual "Wow"s about this rug under my dining table and love the bursts of color and richness. It is darker and more lush than the Overstock photos depict. This is probably the most important purchase I've made here. In a heartbeat I'd recommend this item and each of its different sizes. I put the matching runner at the foot of my king bed, which elongates the look of the bed and really settles the room.

      "There are two different rugs in the photos. One has a medium brown background, the other a deep cocoa background. Which rug is this? Also, some descriptions for the SOho burst rugs show a cotton backing, others show a nonskid. Which backing does this one have? Thank you."

      • A:

        Hello seadawg, this rug has more of a brown background. This rug has a non skid backing. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Q:

      "what is the proper cleaning method for this rug?"

      • A:

        Hello susiensunnyaz, we recommend to turn your vacuums beater bar off when vacuuming to protect the pattern of the rug. When needed you can spot clean spills or stains. Professional cleaning is recommended yearly, or as needed. Have a great day!

      • A:

        No...you cannot just vacuum this rung!!! doing so pulls the silk ribbons loose so you have to get down on your hands and knees and carelly vacuum around and in between all the starbursts... Its not an easy keeper nor does it hold up well in high traffic rooms like family rooms. It looks pretty when you first put it down but looks worn after only a few months. I don'r even have kids and it's a real pain to care for!
