I found this rug after having purchased a rug 2x as expensive from another site that took 3 months to deliver. I got fed up waiting and by chance found this option. I ended up getting them on the same day (the other was delivered a few weeks earlier than expected), so I unrolled them both to compare. Although you could see that the quality of this rug was not quite as fine as the other, but the difference was not noticable at a glance. This rug has a beautiful weave; it is chunky, but not so much that it destabilizes furniture. The color is a warm white, not too bright. It adds a touch of warmth and luxury to my otherwise modern, more severe, decor. It is easy to vaccuum. I am extremely happy with it.
This is a very nice rug! The wool is clean and tightly woven. The braids are larger than they appear in the picture, but are very cool. This rug is comparable to high-end retailer selections at half the price. I purchases the Premium hardwood carpet pad and it completes the look and feel. Trimming the rug pad allows the corners to lay flat. Because of the light color - I purchased white which is a very warm eggshell color. I applied scotch guard and there was no discoloration. This is a very nice rug and looks beautiful on oak floor!
This rug is found elsewhere for 2-3 times the cost at Overstock. It is off-white cream color, no grey hue. We use it at our beach house and get many compliments on its knotted style. It sheds only slightly. I didn't give it 5 stars only because the dimensions are not exactly 9x12. Mine is more toward 8.10 x 11ish. It is actually longer on one side than the other. Since it is under a sofa it doesn't matter. It does have some give in it so if I pulled it, it may stretch . I fear doing that may make the knots look strange so I am leaving it as it is. I really love it though and it feels soft underfoot. 3/2018. I am updating this review because I have owned this rug for almost three years and it still looks great. Also, it definitely shedded more in the beginning than any other rug I’ve ever owned. But that ends after maybe two- three months. It may be annoying to deal with but the shedding never diminished the integrity of the product. It’s a very nice rug.
Love this rug. We ordered the cream/off-white version. The color is exactly what we expected and the quality is great. Found it on overstock for a fraction of the price as elsewhere. Originally found this rug on ***** and was surprised to find it larger and about $250 cheaper on overstock. We've already had to deal with pet urine stains (new house, he's usually quite good) and the rug is very absorbent. I would say if you're concerned about staining don't get this rug. We used a couple of different cleaners to attempt stain removal and they haven't worked, which is not typical. The fibers rub off on your clothing too, kind of like a how a dog sheds so if that's a concern to you beware - we're pretty laid back so it doesn't bother us.
Such a nice rug . Feels good under your feet , and the color is soft and pleasing I purchased all together five of these rugs of different sizes and they are all very serviceable and practical items . I do recommend the Non slip pad for them like any thinner rug . We think there great little braided rugs . Good product .
Purchased this rug for our nursery. We wanted something really soft and warm with a high pile - this rug fits the bill perfectly! The cable-knit weave is unique and gives it such a wonderful feel. We just put the rug in so I'm not sure how well it holds up to vacuuming or traffic with a dog, but right now we're very pleased. In terms of color, we ordered the light grey and it is a little more "flat" than I thought. Based on the photo I thought it might be closer to a heathered grey with darker and lighter fibers woven in, but it's truly a very pure, flat, grey color. Very pretty, just a little deceiving based on the online photo. Overall, very pleased with the purchase so far!
Unfortunately, this rug started coming apart on us as soon as we vacuumed it the first time. It's almost as if the braided part has been glued down and it comes up when vaccumed. At 1st, we thought it would just be in a few places and that we could glue them down with a hot glue gun, but then we noticed that almost every time we vacuum, a new braided part becomes undone and starts sticking up and straight out of the rug. Looks really bad. We tried all 3 of our vacuum cleaners on it, and it happens with all of them. Have talked to Overstock customer service reps a few times already, uploaded and sent pictures and are still waiting for someone to email/contact back. I hope they will do something for us, because in a few months I am afraid that most of the rug will unbraid. Very unfortunate since it was quite expensive and looks very nice.
This is overall a great rug! We bought it for our toddlers room and liked it so much we bought it again for another home. Its a neutral color - off white with a hint of very light grey undertones. It doesnt need a rug pad underneath as its quite heavy. It shed a bit in the first few weeks, but with regular vacuuming, it stopped after a couple of months. Definitely recommend this. One thing to note is that the braids are quite wide/chunky. In the picture they look to me a bit thinner, so if that's an issue for you, do note that before you buy.
Interesting - Natural - Artsy- the presence of eye catching texture with a modern almost Scandinavian feel adds instant personality. The pets took to it immediately! Nice comfort to the touch. The gaps between the braids will collect debris - expect to vacuum this rug (like any other). It's well made and quite unique. The braiding is not perfect - it is hand made- so there are natural variations in the rows - gaps do widen and narrow which tells of its handmade origin. I wonder if in years to come the braids will loosen- they seem quite secure tho - so I will treat it with care.
Purchased this rug in October 2016, and I'm very happy with it. Love the thick weave and that it is wool. The grey color we purchased is perfect for our living area. The rug is durable and easy to clean even after I spilt a whole cup of coffee on it last week eeeek !!! ( no stain!) Sheds a little but not to bad at all, I highly recommend if your in the market for a wool braided rug.
This rug is so soft and comfortable! The color is more of a grey beige. Love the natural wool fiber feel and the braided look adds texture. It is thick and plush. I would definitely recommend this!
This rug is amazing. It's truly beautiful. The weave is thick and plush, and after 2 years - it's still plush! The downsides are: -the braided pieces occasionally get loose and come out (probably from my vacuum). No problem, they can be super-glued back down. -It is difficult to clean, no surprise, as most textured wool rugs are. -The wool has started to pull on the very top layers, creating a slightly fuzzy look, rather than the tight braided weave. -Careful not to stretch with furniture. Heavy furniture may shift, as a result the rug may stretch where it has been pulled. Again, a common issue with wool rugs. so no surprise there. Absolutely love it.
This rug is beautiful! Like other reviewers noted, it does shed a bit at first but it hasn't been too much of a bother. It is more of an off-white than a true white color, but I would say it matches what is shown in the photos. I'm really happy I went with this rug! It works well in my casual living room, but is versatile enough to complement more formal decor if I choose to change things up.
This rug is amazing- soft, thick and beautiful. Even directly out of the package it did not have a strong smell. It is gray with a slight taupe tone that makes it warm. We put the 8x10 on Jacobean/expresso wood floors under a queen bed in our guest room and it looks great. We used a 3/8" foam and rubber carpet pad from another vendor and are so happy with the plush feel of the pair. I wanted to order a larger version of this rug for the livingroom but I am concerned that the braids will come loose in a high traffic area- they are not very tight. The kids definitely couldn't drive their matchbox cars across this rug without threatening pulls.
i like this rug - it's modern but knitted. i'm not sure how this will wear or hide dirt yet. an improvement on the rug would be a tighter knit, so you can't see the material below it's woven onto. i like it's creamy color and i love wool for its wear. very attractive.
So this is the most expensive rug I have ever purchased. I usually go cheap. But I just couldn't resist the knitted look of this rug. I was worried to purchase it online, but it looks even better in person. The rug is really a creamy white and it looks perfect against out maple floors. It really gives our living room and warm and cozy feel that I was looking for. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Overstock provided fairly quick shipping and the rug was packaged very well. I would buy this again in a minute.
We love this rug! Color is a cream (off white) True to description. It’s a great addition by our window nook area. We ordered a rug non slip for under it. It’s absolutely perfect for our space. We love it so far! No issues at all.
I have ordered many rugs from overstock.com and have an issue with a single one, until now. This is the second rug I have ordered for a particular space and upon arrival I was very excited. The advertised color (white) is not what the product is, in fact, as another reviewer has stated it is more of an ivory/cream color. The color works well in the area I have it placed (white walls with grey trim). It is handwoven so you can visibly see the imperfections, but they are small and do not bother me. The sizing is not a true 6' x 9', so the rug pad I also ordered from Overstock will have to be cut down, again, not really what bothers me. What really is upsetting is the foul mildew smell. I should have known better than to even open the package. As I was bringing the rug inside, I could smell mildew. I was hoping it was just the plastic, so I promptly unrolled the rug so that it could breathe. My entire (newly constructed) apartment smells like mildew now. It has been almost one week since I have had the rug open and I still cannot get rid of the smell. I have vacuumed the rug 5 times hoping that perhaps it is just in the loose fibers in addition to other odor eliminating methods with the exception of laying it in the sun as I am on the 4th floor of an apartment building and the rug is too large. I sincerely hope that my experience is a fluke, but I am upset that I spent more money for a rug that would look better and am now dealing with these issues.
Great addition to our bedroom. this is not a high traffic area so we've not had any issues with shedding. Love the color of the rug and the texture it adds to our bedroom. would buy again.
Great color, thick wool and perfect size!
