    • 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.

      This rug is heavy, thick, beautifully colored and true to the picture. We have it in our family room, which is high traffic, and have had this rug some time now and it looks new. The colors are vibrant and stunning. I highly recommend this rug if you are looking for something different and very high quality. You will not find this kind of rug at your local store.

      Bought this rug for my parents house 4 years ago. It was a great rug in the beginning except it sheds alot (its mostly wool). The shedding did slow down after 1 year. The other material in the rug that's the ruffles (yellow, orange, & red) it's falling off.

      I have a runner in this pattern and it is holding up so well that I decided to splurge on the area rug. This rug is wonderfully thick and looks very nice in living room The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is that some of the starburst ribbons come out when vacuuming.

    • 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.

    • 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...

      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!

    • 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!

      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.

      "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: 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!
