Cool Rug
 from Cincinnati, OH,  Jan 14, 2013

I purchased this rug after looking at rugs for months for my front room/living room. This is definitely a fantastic deal, and I have received multiple compliments from guests. I chose it to go with two dark grey West Elm couches and some Anthropologie panels in an eggplant print on light beige. The walls in the room are a light taupe/grey color. Ive since added a navy faux-suede chair and navy pillows. I also have a black baby grand anchoring one corner. Ive gone for a casual modern feel, and the whole room pulls together well. I mention all these details so you can have a better understanding of how the purple rug might go with other colors. It is definitely a room brightener, yet does not stray toward magenta like other "purple" rugs do. This stays true to the onscreen color...a violet/aubergine tone. I think because it is so dominant, though, a coffee table or ottoman or something that sits in the middle of it would help reduce its dominance (other reviewers mention using it under a bed in a bedroom--and I can see how that would work well). The texture is fantastic. It really makes a difference from an ordinary rug in terms of creating visual interest. It's comfortable under your feet. It is thick, but doesn't make the furniture wobble to have only 2 legs on it.I don't have a rug pad underneath because so much of it is anchored with furniture. I've read other reviewers mention cleaning with an upholstery attachment on a vacuum. I haven't tried that yet, but my dog has rolled around in it quite a bit (must be the scent--I don't smell anything myself) and I haven't noticed it collecting dog hair. My husband said it's about 150 pounds, so shaking it out outside isn't going to happen much (or at all), but I don't think that will be a big deal for us as it's in a less-used living room (vs. a family room where the kids are spilling all the time). All in all, very pleased with this purchase (and extremely quick delivery).
