Wool without other materials that cheapen the rug (viscose, jute, etc), no latex backing, neutral coloring without a distracting/busy pattern/print that coordinates with another rug visible from our living room, low pile so the chairs in our casual dining area will easily slide across it, and a decent price...these are the qualities I have spent months in search of for our dining area rug; and this rug meets them very well. I cannot speak for the shedding as I just received it; but I have found wool rugs to produce minimal shedding. There is a slight odor that is not overpowering and based on other experience with wool rugs, I expect it to dissipate over time. *Note: the coloring is most accurately represented by the individual photo (at least, for the ivory colored rug). The photo of all three color options together shows a lighter ivory color, and I hesitated to order because of this. The individual photo shows a more "oatmeal" coloring, and that is a more true representation (in my opinion). There is an underlying black/charcoal background to the ivory color, so it has a less bright/pure ivory color. Shopping online for rugs is tricky...there is greater selection and better pricing, but it comes at the risk of not having that touch and see that you have with an in-store purchase. I spent months and did many, many online searches of photos of each rug I considered so I could analyze color, print, pile, etc. and feel somewhat "safe" about what I was ordering. This rug accurately meets my expectations for what I believed I was ordering.
I was searching for many months....many many months for a fairly neutral diamond patterned area rug for my dining room. This rug was an excellent find for the price. I have dogs and was concerned that their claws would get caught in the wool weave however that has not happened. I have had this rug for almost a year now and it is still in the same condition I got it. It doesn't really shed but I do vacuum it once a week because of the area it is in. Our dining room is medium to high traffic and the rug is still great. The picture on overstock accurately depicts the actual rug. I wouldn't recommend this for a play room with children as this is not a soft rug but for something that is durable yet not too bad on the feet, then this is it.
I bought the 7'6x9'6 nuLOOM Handmade Concentric Diamond Trellis Wool/ Cotton Rug in Ivory to use in a bedroom. It is better looking than described. Love that it is wool, and that the rug is thin, soft, and has no bad/chemical odor. The color of the ivory rug appears to be an exact match to the photos in the ad.
Love love love this nuLOOM Handmade Concentric Diamond Trellis Wool/Cotton Area Rug! It has great texture. Very good quality too. It’s nice a thick. I would recommend it!
I love this rug! The design, weave, and colors are perfect - just as pictured. An earlier review complained about the shedding...of course it sheds; it's wool. I'd rather deal with the shedding and have an "organic" rug than man-made poly. Besides, after a few weeks, the shedding will slow.
This rug is definitely a great value for the price. I wanted natural fibers with no latex or glued backing as I am sensitive to chemical smells and wanted wool to insulate a cold floor. It is hard to find something that answers those criteria without breaking the bank, and I am thrilled with this purchase. The rug is very comfortable underfoot even though it is not the softest rug, so maybe less perfect for babies than adults. I had it a few days without any underpad and was initially worried it would move around too much and get stretched out by chairs, but now that I have a good rug pad underneath it doesn't move and chairs slide easily enough on it. It is great at brightening up the space (I have the Ivory version), and I enjoy my living room a lot more now that I have this. My landlord repaired the wall after installing new windows and dropped some plaster on the rug. I only discovered it the next day after it had dried but it came out easily with just a wet clean rag. For rug pads, I actually recommend going to a local carpet store and getting the recycled rubber with jute type. It is comfortable, will never compress, doesn't budge whatsoever and lasts decades. This type of underpad seems to be unavailable online, and is only marginally more expensive than the felt and rubber ones which are nowhere near as effective. It makes this relatively cheap rug feel like a much more expensive one.
I love the way this rug looks. I bought it in gray to go under my bed, and as a result, I don't find the busy pattern to be a problem at all - I love it. Agreed on it being a bit scratchy. It's somewhere between wool and sisal in texture. But to walk on it's just fine, feels soft and comfortable in bare feet. I just now laid it down and I don't smell anything unusual, and the edges are laying perfectly flat. Based on other reviews, I did purchase a felt rug pad (Overstock Premium Felted Reversible Dual Surface Non-slip Rug Pad), so that gives it a nice cushy feeling. It was more gray and less white than I was expecting (the gray is the dominant yarn), but it works perfectly in my room. Very satisfied.
Its always risky to order large/oversized items online, but this rug was a huge success. The color is accurate, the quality is great, its a really cool-vintage-RH looking rug. Love it!
This rug is a terrific buy for the price. Looks way more expensive than it is. Color: The grey option is a cool grey, very slightly on the bluer side of the spectrum. Not green at all. Texture: It's warm underfoot with a slightly bumpy texture, but very soft to touch. It is not uncomfortable to walk on, but the bumpiness makes it less than cushy. It definitely needs a rug pad to stay put. Very slick on a hardwood floor. I would recommend getting a high quality felted one to give it a little more padding underfoot and maybe minimize the texture. Gripes: Rug does not measure 8x10 but rather 7'7.5" x 9'9" Also the pattern is not centered evenly, so one edge has three-quarters of the diamond pattern while the other edge has a full diamond. Probably no one but me would ever notice that. Finally, one short edge of rug flips up and will not lie flat even 48 hours after unrolling it. Hoping this will chill out eventually. Still, I can strongly recommend this rug for the discriminating bargain hunter!
I was afraid this pattern might be too intense in the 8 x 10 size, but it is not as busy as I expected. It almost reads like a textured carpet. We have it in a boy's nursery with black mid-century furniture and it works perfectly. Fair warning, the wool-smell did take about 2-3 weeks to burn off but it eventually went away and there is no after-smell now. Though not exactly soft, the rug is comfortable for bare feet and sitting. I ordered the Ivory.
Purchased the 8x10 and couldn't believe the price. Wasn't sure what I was going to get in terms of quality, but all the other reviewers indicated that they loved the rug. Really happy with pattern of the rug and the quality. It's real wool so it does shed, but also does a great job hiding dog hair! You do need to vacuum it often at first. It can also be a bit scratchy if you sit on it for long periods of time, but I think after you break it in a bit, that will get better. I purchased the Ivory color and thought that the accent color was actually going to be dark gray -- it's actually black. We have darker graphite colored furniture and the black actually looks really nice so I'm still happy with the color. Overall, would definitely recommend the rug and I'm even considering buying another one for our dining room!
The rug pattern and color are as represented in the photo. As a result, the rugs (I bought two) fit perfectly in the schemes of our sun room and living room. Good quality. As with all rugs, it's important to use a good rug pad. With the pads, we've experienced no slipping. We recommend this product!
This rug is of an excellent quality. The ivory is a true ivory. And while the texture of the wool rug is rich and rustic, the rug remains soft on your feet. Also a great rug for layering.
This rug was exactly what I was looking for. I purchased the Ivory 5x8 rug to replace an existing Ivory 8x10 rug in my living room. I wanted a smaller rug that was modern looking without being over the top. The color looks just like the picture (mainly ivory with the black diamond design running through). This rug is beautiful, well made and looks amazing with any type of furniture. It looks great on both sides should you decide to flip it for a different look.
Excellent rug and great quality. I love the colors and textures. This perfectly matches the photos and description online. I highly recommend this rug.
I just love my rug. The trellis design is very classy without being too much of a pattern. I find the rug to be just as pictured and it is a perfect color gray. It is very soft to walk on. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
Beautiful wool rug! Fits perfectly in my entryway. Excellent Quality. Would recommend!
For the price this is a really attractive rug. I have the gray color and the design is not too distracting but adds interest and a comfortable clean feel to the room. The wool is of good quality and I noticed no strange smell. I would expect it to smell like, well, wool though if it gets wet. It did not take long to lay completely flat even on the corners. This is probably because it is fairly soft. It is a substantial wool weave but my only reason for giving it 4 stars versus 5 is because although the quality is good it is somewhat soft and thinner than I expected. Definitely needs a sticky mat underneath to keep it from moving around. I hope it lasts a while.
Beautiful design on this rug. The grey is a little darker than I thought, but the pattern is lovely. Giving 4 instead of 5 stars since it's a little scratchy underfoot - if you're looking for a lower pile wool rug, this would be a great option for a high traffic area. Ultimately, we ended up sending this rug back just because we were looking for something a little softer with a higher pile for our nursery. Would probably be great for a living room or dining room!
