      I've had it for about a year. I read the reviews and was scared to purchase. It is in my dining room and is not walked on often. The starburst does shed---or the threads do come up on the heaviest traffic area. Am I glad I purchased, yes. Would I put it in an area with a high traffic area, ABSOLUTELY NOT!

      Just hope the design does not come apart when vacuuming. I read the other reviews and now I am worried.

      I was on the fence about buying this rug after reading all of the reviews, but I wanted it, so I bought it. It looks exactly like it looks in the picture... beautiful, I wanted a little pizzazz in my living room and I got it. I vacuum it with the bare floor setting, it takes a little going over to get popcorn from between the threads (I live in my living room :)) Threads do come out, not from vacuuming but for unknown reasons, I will see a thread and think, hum, I wonder how that happened, the good news is, there are a lot of threads and I haven't even noticed some being gone. More good news is that my 4 boys are grown, otherwise, I'm sure there would be no threads left in the whole rug, it would have been a project like... how many threads does it take to make a burst?? Bottom line... if in a couple years there are no more threads, I hope I can find another exactly like this one to replace it. Thank you for making it :) Denise

      Verified Purchase

      This is really a great rug for the price. Nice and soft and adds a nice color pop to the room. After a few months it does still shed a bit but I would still buy it again. It really looks cool and fun with my mid century pieces and all my friends dig it. You can't go wrong for this price and free shipping. Love it!

      Very heavy, very thick. It's wool so it does shed and my cats do go after it but the colors are stunning. The ribbons do not look silly at all. Quality rug. Liked it so much I bought another in other colors for another room.

    • 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!
